It's almost Easter, which means it's time to make some bright, sparkly eggs! In the past, we've made Confetti eggs and Neon Dipped eggs, but this year we're bringing the glitter! These eggs will instantly add fun to a basket or table scape, and they'll make Easter egg hunts extra magical. You can cover them in multiple colors or pick your favorite and cover it entirely. Whichever method you choose, here's how to make them...

Here's how...
1. If you are using wooden eggs, spray paint them first with a white primer and let dry for 20 minutes.
2. Paint Mod Podge onto the egg with the foam brush in whatever shape you'd like to do your first color of glitter. Make sure you have a thin, even coat.
3. Use the small bowl to pour the glitter over the Mod Podge section of the egg. Let dry for 5 minutes.
4. Repeat with as many sections of color as you'd like, allowing a bit of drying time between each.

Ta-dah! As you can see, we made some eggs a solid color while making others color-blocked for a fun twist. Then, we added them to our Easter baskets as a fun gift!
