Glue gun/ clear glue sticks
Plastic easter egg
Matching color glitter in fine or ultra fine
Aleene’s Tacky Glue or Mod Podge
DecoArt Clear Varnish
1. Start by taking egg apart into two pieces and liberally apply glue all over the outside. (Aleene’s or Mod Podge)
2. Dust glitter onto the glue, spreading and patting down as you go to make the application even. Repeat on other egg half.
3. Let the glue dry for an hour or more.
4. Shellacking or applying varnish to the dried egg is optional, but it helps keep the glitter on and from getting nicked or knocked off. Make sure the sealant is the kind that dries clear.
5. Spread the varnish on both egg pieces thinly and let dry for an hour.
6. Cut the ribbon length enough to go around the mid section of the egg once.
7. Cut and create a bow from the same ribbon to be glued on later.
8. Using the glue gun, apply a small about of hot glue to only half of the ribbon, the topmost half. You should only apply glue to that top half so that the egg can come apart later and the ribbon is covering the egg’s seam.
9. Gently press the ribbon onto the bottom edge of the top half of the egg so that half of the ribbon hangs over.
10. Finish this all the way around the egg.
11. Glue the ribbon edges together and apply a dab of glue over the edges and press the ribbon bow you created earlier. Hold in place until the glue hardens.
That’s it! You now have a pretty, sparkly, yet easy to make egg!
