Hop out of the box with your Easter egg decorating this year and follow these Pinterest-inspired nontraditional techniques.
Glue and Glitter
Dip your eggs in glue and then roll them around in glitter, beads or sequins. For polka dots, drop dots of glue and then sprinkle glitter. This method also works great with sprinkles.
Using a Sharpie or other fine-pointed writing utensil, draw intricate designs onto your egg, such as big stripes, little stripes, chevron or squiggles. You can even write a favorite quote or saying onto the egg.
To dress up your egg in a bit fancier way, glue on some lace and a small flower or other decorative piece. Your eggs will be sure to be egg-squisite!
Bring out the Buttons
Grab the craft box and pull out all the odds and ends of random buttons, ribbon and paper galore and have fun gluing this creative smorgasbord onto all your eggs. The more random, the better!
If you don’t have a steady hand to create your own designs, try painting over stickers to imprint designs on your eggs, and peel them off afterwards to reveal beautiful patterns. You can also paint the eggs first and then stick on white colored stickers, as pictured below.
