Glittered Eggs

Sunday, March 24, 2013




While the clothes tumble around in the dryer I have been glittering some eggs.
Yesterday morning I blew the yolks and whites out of about 8 eggs.  I wanted to try to make the smallest holes possible so they didn't show later.  I found that the smallest holes almost made me burst a blood vessel trying to blow the egg out...lol!  Don't be afraid to make one of the holes a little bigger than you might want, it won't show later.  I used a large needle to make my holes. 
 Blow the eggs out into a container.  This way you can refrigerate them and make french toast tomorrow morning.
Yum!
After blowing out the eggs I put them in a bowl of water.  After they fill up slightly with water, shake them around, and then blow the water out.  This way you clean the inside of the eggs.  Set them aside on paper towel to dry. 
 I let mine dry over night.
 
 
 
This morning I coated them in glue with a paint brush and then rolled them around in glitter.  I used Tombow Mono Multi Glue.  The glue forms a seal over the holes and you can't even see them anymore.  Once they are coated in glitter, set them aside to dry.

  1. I have never done this with real eggs but I have made glittered eggs with the plastic eggs you can buy for easter. So pretty with all that glitter!

  3. Kara, these are so pretty. I haven't blown out the eggs in a long time but I do seem to recall nearly "bursting a blood vessel." :)

  11. This is my project for today!! I'm going the ink route, but after seeing yours I may slip a glitter one or two in. Yours are beautiful! I dread blowing the insides out. So each year I just do a few. They add up : )

  12. I *love* MS Glitter. I am soooo doing this! My girls will love it - and quite frankly, my boy probably will too (he's only 5, glitter is still pretty cool to him, too!)
