Nothing crazy for easter decor this year, but Andrea and I did have a ridiculous amount of fun with some glitter. Check out my fancy easter eggs:
Inspired by Ms. Martha Stewart, of course, this was such an easy project - just some glue, glitter and eggs. You can blow out the insides of real eggs, but holy heck that is hard work. I think I killed a million brain cells doing that. The styrofoam ones from the dollar store were a bit more up my alley.
Glitter is so fun and kinda addicting, you'll want to go home and cover everything you own in glitter... just warning ya. Oh and also be prepared for a much sparklier home cause this stuff gets EVERYWHERE.
I'm off to go finish off that bowl of mini eggs, happy easter to you!

Frequently Asked Question
What do you dye Easter eggs with?
There are many different ways to dye Easter eggs, and the most popular colors tend to be green and blue. For green eggs, you can use food coloring or vegetable oil based dyes. For blue eggs, you can use water soluble colorants like liquid nitrogen or ultraviolet light. Be sure to test a small amount of your chosen dye on an egg before putting it in the entire batch so that there is no chance of accidental staining.
Overall, whether you're looking for something unique and special for your Easter baskets or just want some fun with your kids during this zany holiday season, trying out new egg dying techniques is always a good idea!
Why are Easter eggs decorated?
Eggs were painted and decorated to signify the conclusion of the period of penance and fasting because it is believed in Christianity that they were once a banned meal during the Lenten season. Eggs were coloured crimson by early Christians in Mesopotamia to resemble the blood that Christ spilt at his crucifixion.
What to use for decorating eggs?
You can choose any acrylic paint brand and colour that you want to use. Use a paintbrush to make amusing patterns. Get some fine-pointed paint brushes for more elaborate designs because eggs are rather small.
How do you glitter plastic eggs?
Glitter plastic eggs are a fun way to add some personality to your Easter decorations. All you need is some glitter glue and eggs. Simply take the egg outside and spray it with a light layer of glitter glue, then place it back in the fridge for a few hours or until glued firmly together. Once assembled, be sure to give them away as gifts!
