I’ve been busy decorating my home for Easter but lacked a centerpiece for my dining room table. After glittering some faux eggs and nestling them in book page filler in a vintage ironstone vegetable dish, I had the perfect centerpiece for my table.
Glittered Easter eggs are a quick and easy to make craft. To make them, I used faux eggs, glitter, and Mod Podge.
Be sure to work over waxed or freezer paper when glittering an object. When you are finished, you can easily pour the extra glitter back into the containers.
To make glittered Easter Eggs, brush half of an egg with Mod Podge and then sprinkle liberally with glitter.
After the Mod Podge dries, coat the other half of the egg and glitter it. I found that it was necessary to rinse my brush after glittering each egg so that I didn’t get glitter in my Mod Podge container.
Shredded pages from a vintage book that I found in a discard pile at the library makes great filler for my glittered Easter eggs. I’ll save the filler to use again next year.
I’m pleased with the end result of this project and I’m always happy when I get to use one of my grandmother’s antiques for decorating my home. I know she’d like this centerpiece.
Easter has been my main topic for the past two weeks. I invite you to click over to tour my decorated for Easter living room, to see my Southern Living inspired kitchen table centerpiece, my striped eggs that I crafted using thrifted friendship bracelet string, and a fun Happy Easter pennant banner that I crafted using cereal boxes.
