HAPPY EASTER! Whether you celebrate Easter with Jesus, the Easter Bunny, or both, it is a day full of happiness and sparkle. People start wearing white and pastels. Big, colorful hats pop up in the church pews. Children run around searching for bright Easter eggs to put in their baskets. And, let’s be real, Easter baskets are amazing. I am 23 years old and my parents still give me an Easter basket. This year it included candy, a cute top, and bacon. Yes, you read that right. My basket had bacon in it – not any ordinary bacon but my favorite pepper-bacon from a little shop back home.
Easter is a day in which you can release your inner child. So, I decided that instead of dying eggs I would decorate them with glitter. This was a lot harder than I thought and also very messy….I’m clumsy and eggs are delicate…not a great combination. Maybe you will have better luck than I did.
Here is the process for glitterizing (yes, I consider this to be a word) your eggs.
- Pull out your eggs, pour glitter into small bowls, and grab your Modge-Podge.
- Soak the eggs in warm water for 5-10 minutes.
- Poke a small hole in the egg. I recommend twisting the pin as you press down instead of just jabbing it into the egg. Expand the hole slowly.
- Swirl a paper-clip in the egg to break up the yolk.
- Drain the egg into a bowl. Rinse off the egg and let it dry.
- Put Modge-Podge on the egg where you would like the glitter to be. Dip the egg in glitter or pour glitter over the egg (the second option is more messy).
- Let them dry and you have pretty, sparkly eggs!
