Glitter-Decorated Easter Eggs!

My new favorite craft and DIY blog, Tater Tots & Jello, featured this super cute idea (from the craft queen "A Pumpkin and a Princess") for decorating Easter eggs with glittery polka dots and I had to give it a whirl...but with my own spin! I decided to use my new favorite craft supplies, my Martha Stewart Fine-Tip Glue Pen and Martha Stewart Iridescent Glitter, and get to work!

Here's what you'll need:


  1. Hard-Boiled eggs (obviously). If you need cooking instructions, click here
  2. Martha Stewart Fine-Tip Glue Pen, $2.99 store.scrapbook.com
  3. An old makeup brush
  4. Martha Stewart Glitter, $19.99 for a 12-piece set store.scrapbook.com



Holding the egg vertically between your index finger and thumb, make glue dots all over with the glue pen.


Continuing to hold the egg between your thumb and index finger, shake the glitter tube all over the egg covering the glue dots completely.



Blow off all the excess glitter and let the dots dry for just about a minute. Then use the makeup bush to dust off any extra sprinkles of glitter for a polished look!

And that's it! 
It's so easy and so cute! 

The glue pen is also fantastic for writing pretty script on the eggs too, and I finished off my Easter basket with some solid colored traditional ones as well.

So, do you guys get all into Easter egg decorating??

  1. That's neat. We always died the eggs when I was a kid. I don't celebrate Easter anymore as we only have two holidays in Islam but I always loved dying the eggs the best and then the egg hunts. Though I hate jelly beans. Yuck.

  3. Hey there! New follower from Bloggy Moms :) I love these! They turned out beautiful and look pretty simple to make. I can see this as the center piece for our Easter table this year. We haven't died our eggs yet but will probably get a head start tonight. I am always looking for new creative ideas to getting them decorated. Thanks for the wonderful post.

  10. Those are so cute, Devon! I've never bothered with Easter egg decorating because it seemed beyond my skill level but I think we may give this a try next year.
