Put Your (Easter) Party Hat On!

It seems like everyone is showing off their Easter crafts and decor, so whaddaya say we have an Easter Linky party here later this week??  I’ll put up a post on Wednesday night for the party on Thursday so everyone can link up their Easter-related blog post(s).  Share your Easter decor, crafts, wreaths, outfits or baskets!

easterbutton All week long I’ll be posting my favorite Easter-related crafts and decor.  To start, I made some pretty glittered eggs this weekend to add to my decor. Natasha at  Samster Mommy also made some, and I copied her technique.

I used paper mache eggs, but this will work with your common plastic eggs as well.  Stick a wooden skewer in ‘em and prop them up in a bucket or piece of foam.

Give your eggs a good thick coat of modge podge:

Sprinkle liberally with fine glitter.  Do this over a paper plate so you can dump the excess glitter back in the jar.

Shake off the excess glitter over the plate and stick them in a bucket or foam to dry.  IMG_0394IMG_0396 IMG_0397

After a few minutes, I sprayed mine with clear sealer to help keep the glitter from getting everywhere, but I’m not sure if that really helped or not.IMG_0408

Set them in a basket or nestle them in an arrangement and you’ve got instant sparkle!

You could also leave them on the skewer, tie a bow underneath them, and stick them in a wreath, potted plant, or other type of display.

So make sure you come back all week long for more Easter projects and to link up your own on Wednesday night!
