Paint and glitter make these Easter eggs glamorous and distinctive, however they’re nonetheless really easy!
Provides for Paint and Glitter Easter Egg Thought:
- Styrofoam eggs
- floral foam, any form
- paint in no matter colours you select
- craft paint brush
- white glue
- empty field or field lid
- persistence 🙂
The eggs, toothpicks, planting foam, white glue and glitter all got here from the greenback retailer and the paint was simply leftover from different initiatives. I went for pastel colours to supply distinction to the brilliant colours of glitter, however this Easter egg concept will be completed with any colours of paint and glitter you select. A darker paint with lighter glitter may prove actually cool, be artistic!
Paint and Glitter Easter Egg Thought: The Course of
Step 1: Put together the Styrofoam Eggs
Stick a toothpick in a single finish of every egg. Some I caught in from the highest of the egg and a few from the underside, only for selection. Place every toothpick and egg into the floral foam.
Step 2: Paint, with no mess!
Take away one egg and toothpick from the floral foam and, utilizing the toothpick as a deal with, fully cowl every egg within the paint shade of your alternative. Return the egg to it’s spot within the floral foam and let it dry. Repeat till all of the eggs are painted and drying. Enable the eggs to dry fully (right here’s the place the persistence is available in!)
Step 3: Embellish
This Easter egg concept enables you to get artistic right here.
I gave a couple of eggs a paint-dipped look by portray simply a part of the egg. It labored properly to spin the toothpick between my fingers and maintain the paint brush nonetheless, making a clean “dipped”-like line on every egg. Let the paint dry fully.
Technically you could possibly dip a part of every egg in a can of paint, however I assumed it might tackle a lot paint that it might in all probability drip (ack! mess!) and in addition take eternally to dry (requiring extra persistence!).
For a glitter-dipped look, first collect a field or field lid to catch extra glitter. Then, holding the egg by the toothpick, use your craft brush to use white glue on the egg solely the place you need your glitter.
Nonetheless holding the egg by the toothpick (and with the egg over the field or lid), instantly pour glitter over the glue whilst you rotate the egg. Coat the glue completely with glitter. Place the egg again into the floral foam and let all the things dry.
I adorned some eggs with simply paint, some with simply glitter, and some with paint and glitter. I like the mix whenever you put all of them collectively.
Wasn’t this one of many least messy Easter egg concepts?
To show, I set the eggs proper into some candleholders then I grouped them round on my mantel and on a aspect desk. With a martini glass and a few raffia, I created a pleasant “nest” for among the eggs.
