When it comes to decorating Easter eggs, the options are limitless. In fact, I can’t think of the last time I’ve sat down and just dyed Easter eggs. Instead, when I’m invited to craft with my little cousins, I usually bring along a Sharpie, some temporary tattoos, rubber bands for tie-dying, or even gold leaf (which you can see here).
This year, I was looking for a sweet and simple egg decorating idea that hadn’t been done before (at least by me!) Enter: sequin Easter eggs. You can’t go wrong with a little gold sparkle in my opinion, and sequins are less messy than glitter—which is always a plus. My fellow Team LC editor Allison and I spent a couple hours crafting these sparkly eggs, and they were so much fun to design. They’re sure to add a festive touch to your holiday tablescape or Easter display. They’re probably a bit harder to camouflage in an Easter egg hunt, however!
Here’s what you will need:
- hard-boiled eggs (we used Lauren’s natural-dyed Easter eggs, so they had a layer of pretty color underneath the sequins)
- Elmer’s glue
- art paintbrush
Dot the Elmer’s glue on the egg, and individually apply each sequin. If you are looking to cover the whole egg or any significant surface area, use a paintbrush to spread the glue around. Try adding stripes, polka dots, shapes, or covering the entire egg if you like. Let dry completely. Note: We also experimented with a hot glue gun, but we found that plain old Elmer’s glue was easier to work with.
How are you going to decorate your eggs this year?
