Martha [Stewart] is the queen of many things--glitter included. She has the best glitter selection out there. I recommend her glitter collection packs, which give you a wide selection of colors that you can mix and match as you desire. Also, her new florescent glitter collection offers a bunch of fun, bold colors. This year I thought it would be fun to glitter some eggs to add some bling to old Easter favorites: daffodils and candy. Glittering eggs is pretty easy. To start with you can either paint or dye your eggs (I would paint them if they're fake or dye them if they're real). Then coat with craft glue and sprinkle on a heavy coat of glitter and shake off the excess. Plan to glitter about half your egg at a time...this way you can get a nice even coat. Finally enjoy! You can embellish your eggs further by adding stickers or ribbon. If you are going to place your glittered eggs with food be sure to sit them in cupcake liners.
For the treat tower below the boys helped me make jelly bean carrot favors (idea from Martha) and then we layered in mini chocolate bunnies and carrots with our glittered eggs. I used stickers (from Martha) and ribbon to add a little extra to the display. The cake stands are also from Martha via her Macy's line.
My second use of the glittered eggs was to add some interest to Spring daffodils. I first layered some sheet moss down at the base of the daffodils. Then I nestled in the glittered eggs and some colorful glass flowers. I attached a glass hummingbird to a skewer so he could hover amongst the blooms. I also tied gold elastic around a few of the eggs to complement the glitter.
