Easter Eggstravaganza: DIY Vintage Glitter Eggs

We can’t have an Eggstravaganza without a little – or a lot of glitter, right? Rebekah Meier lends her pretty, vintage style to these DY Vintage Glittered Easter Eggs. Of course, you can make these eggs in a rainbow of glittering colors, if you like. So, get your spring sparkle on and make a few of these Vintage Glitter Eggs.

Rebekah used silver and gold glitter for her eggs. You can change them up with your favorite, sparkling colors.

To make Vintage Glitter Eggs:

  1. Insert a wood skewer or chopstick into the wide end of each egg to use as a handle.
  1. Brush a thin, even layer of Mod Podge on an egg. Working over newspaper or a box lid, sprinkle glitter on egg till it’s completely covered. Shake off excess glitter. Insert wood skewer or chopstick into a block or scrap of STYROFOAM Brand Foam to hold the egg upright while the glue dries. Repeat with remaining eggs.

Layer cardstock, a book page, crepe paper and a button to make the reosette.

  1. Make the rosette:
  • Trace a 2” circle onto a book page and cut out with pinking shears.
  • Glue book page circle onto cream cardstock. Cut circle from cream cardstock with pinking shears.
  • Fold in half lengthwise a 12” strip of crepe paper. Trim the open edge with pinking shears.
  • Gather the folded edge of crepe paper strip with button thread and needle, creating a rosette.
  • Glue rosette to the center of layered, cardstock circle.
  • Glue button onto the center of rosette.
  • Glue lace around the egg, wrapping it widthwise or lengthwise. Trim away excess.
  • Glue completed rosette to the center of egg, on top of lace.
  1. Cut one 8” piece of decorative ribbon. Fold in half, dip pin in glue, and pin edges to the pointed top of egg. This will be the hanger.
  1. Tie a bow in a 12” length of satin ribbon. Trim ends and glue next to the hanger.
  1. Edge rosette and button with glitter glue.

Do you craft with glitter? Or are you in the camp of “I’m never letting glitter in my house”?

It's the annual Easter Eggstravaganza on Crafts 'n Coffee!
