Pretty sweet glitter eggs

For this year's Easter tree, that I am in the process of making, I need some new eggs to hang on it. I have recycled my previously painted eggs from my Easter 2010 table by covering them in glitter to match this year's Easter colour scheme of mint, peach and gold.

7 eggs

How-to step by step

  • Paint plastic egg

    Step 1

    Start by carefully removing the plastic stopper from the plastic eggs. Paint egg in mint coloured paint.

  • Glitter egg

    Step 2

    Then brush PVA glue on to top of eggs. Sprinkle coloured glitter onto glued area of eggs. Tap gently to remove any excess glitter, and leave to dry.

  • Place egg hanger in egg

    Step 3

    Push egg hangers into hole at top of eggs and thread gold embroidery thread through loop in egg hanger, and knot to secure.

  • Thread thread in to hanger

    Step 4

    Brush PVA glue onto rest of eggs and spoon glitter onto eggs, covering entire surface. Tap gently to remove any excess glitter, hang and leave to dry.
