glitter easter eggs à la pottery barn

Glitter eggs1

I spied some glittery easter eggs a couple of times at different Pottery Barn stores.

Clearly my eye was drawn to them but I wasn’t partial to the pastel colors so I decided to make my own in my color of choice.
I had some styrofoam eggs kicking around in my easter bin so I figured why not glitter them?
I bought them a few years ago for a different project but they did not lend themselves for that particular purpose.

Lucky because they were perfect for this instance.
I used German glass glitter and it worked like a charm.

It was super easy and I love the end result.  And the best part?  I used all things I had on hand.
Styrofoam eggs, spray adhesive, German glass glitter, tooth pick & sealant.

 I used the toothpick to hold the egg up while I sprayed it with adhesive & then sprinkled it with the glitter.  Rotate the egg and repeat the steps until you have full & even glitter coverage all over the egg.

When you are done glittering all the eggs, set them aside and let them dry fully {I let mine sit overnight}.
The next day I sprayed them with a sealant to make sure the glitter won’t shed with use.

love, Love, LOVE how these turned out.
I’m working on some other easter projects, which I will share once they are complete.
