Glitter Window Easter Eggs

Hey Ladies-

Easter weekend is upon us, but if you are looking for a last minute Easter decoration, check this out.   This variation of my last post adds glitter to the eggs, but  leaves a window in the sparkle to feature a fun picture of your loved ones.  IMG_0185-001

Here is what you need:

  • Plastic Decorating Eggs
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Clear Spray Acrylic Sealer
  • White School Glue
  • Scissors
  • Sponge Craft Brush
  • Glitter
  • Plastic Sandwich bag
  • White Tissue Paper
  • White Printer Paper
  • Printer
  • Photos- For my last post I copied pictures onto tissue paper.  This time I printed digital images directly to the tissue paper at approximately a 1″x1″ size, give or take a little depending on if it was a vertical or horizontal image.

1.  As in the last post, print or copy your images to white tissue paper that has been taped to a piece of white printer paper.IMG_0187

2. Cut the images out of the tissue paper.   I decided to include our furry family members in this one!IMG_0192

3.  Using a the Mod Podge and sponge craft brush, adhere the images to the plastic decorating eggs, making sure to gently smooth any creases out as you go.IMG_0154

4.  My son was able to help with this step.  Using a clean sponge craft brush spread a thin layer of school glue on the egg avoiding the image area.  While the glue is still wet, place one egg at a time in a plastic sandwich bag that has glitter in it and shake.  Let it dry and then wipe off any stray glitter that is resting on the image.IMG_0167


I chose to display my eggs on a “tree” on my kitchen table!

To display this way, it takes just a few simple steps:

1.  Drill a hole in a block of wood.  I found one a piece of 2×10 left over from another project in our garage.

2.  Grab a stick off of a tree and hot glue it into the hole.

3.  Hot glue crafting moss to the block of wood.  ($1 at The Dollar Tree)

4.  Tie one end of a piece of twine around the egg and leave a loop at the other end to hang on the “tree”.

Happy Easter!!
