How To Make Glitter Easter Eggs

Items Needed:

  • Boiled Eggs
  • Fine Glitter
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Quart Baggies
  • Hairspray (optional)

How To Make Glitter Easter Eggs

  • Place a bit of Elmer’s glue or white craft glue in a small bowl.
  • Make sure your boiled eggs are nice and dry.
  • Add some of each color of glitter to a quart baggie. Do not mix the colors. I added only a couple of tablespoons, but filling the bag up a bit more, if possible, would definitely be better. 
  • Use the paint brushes to coat one egg at a time in glue. Make sure you don’t miss a spot!
  • Gently drop the coated egg in the bag of glitter of your choosing and gently roll it around in the glitter, being careful to not scrape it against the sides of the bag too much.
  • Once the egg is nice and coated, leave it in the bag and lay it flat for about 2 minutes. 
  • Gently remove the egg from the bag. If there are any spots that didn’t get coated, gently apply glue in just those spots and place it back in the back and repeat the process.

  • Once coated to your liking, spray the egg with hairspray, if you’re using it and gently sit it down without scraping the sides and let it dry for about 8 minutes. The hairspray helps the glitter to not shed near as much. Enjoy your glitter eggs!

Tips & Tricks

  1. Prepare Work Area: Lay down newspaper or a plastic tablecloth to protect your work surface from glue and glitter mess.
  2. Use Fine Glitter: Fine glitter works best for this project as it adheres more easily to the eggs and provides a smoother finish.
  3. Apply Glue Evenly: Use a paintbrush to apply the glue evenly onto the surface of the egg. Make sure to cover the entire egg to ensure the glitter adheres uniformly.
  4. Handle with Care: Be gentle when handling the eggs after applying the glue and glitter to avoid smudging or removing the glitter prematurely.
  5. Allow Drying Time: Let the eggs dry completely before handling or displaying them. This ensures that the glue and glitter set properly and minimizes the risk of glitter shedding.
  6. Seal with Hairspray: For added durability and to prevent glitter from shedding, lightly spray the finished eggs with hairspray. Allow them to dry completely before handling.
  7. Touch Up as Needed: If any spots on the eggs are missed or if you want to add more glitter in certain areas, you can touch up the eggs with additional glue and glitter before sealing with hairspray.
  8. Experiment with Colors: Mix and match different colors of glitter to create unique and vibrant designs. You can also layer glitter colors for a more dynamic effect.
  9. Store Carefully: To preserve your Glitter Eggs, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid stacking them to prevent the glitter from rubbing off.

FAQ’s For Making Glitter Easter Eggs

  1. Can I use regular glue instead of Elmer’s glue?
    • Yes, you can use white craft glue or any other glue suitable for crafts. Just ensure it dries clear for a clean finish.
  2. Can I reuse the glitter after making the eggs?
    • Yes, you can reuse the glitter that remains in the baggies for future projects. Just make sure to seal the bags tightly to prevent spills.
  3. Will the hairspray affect the color or shine of the glitter?
    • No, hairspray is typically clear and won’t affect the color or shine of the glitter. It’s mainly used to seal the glitter in place and minimize shedding.
  4. Are Glitter Eggs safe to eat?
    • Glitter Eggs are purely decorative and not meant for consumption. Make sure to use hard-boiled eggs that are still in their shell.
  5. Can I use different types of glitter, such as chunky or holographic?
    • While fine glitter works best for this project, you can experiment with different types of glitter for unique effects. Just keep in mind that chunkier glitters may not adhere as well.
  6. How do I clean up glitter spills or excess glue?
    • Use a damp paper towel or lint roller to pick up any stray glitter or excess glue. You can also use tape to lift glitter off surfaces.
  7. Can I add other decorations to the Glitter Eggs?
    • Yes, you can embellish the eggs further with stickers, rhinestones, or ribbon for added flair. Just make sure to apply them after the glitter has dried completely.
