Easter Crafts – Colorblock Easter Eggs

Colorblock in neon AND glitter!  These were so fun to make and fairly easy so you definitely have time to make these before this Sunday.

You’ll need:  eggs (I blew the eggs out, Martha has great directions on how to do so), egg dying kit (I bought the kind you find at the grocery store), Mod Podge, water, glitter, a brush, and a needle and thread.

First, dye your eggs according to your kits’ instructions.  I bought the Paas brand in neon, because why not!

Once your eggs are dyed and dried, string them so you can a) hang them later and b) use the string to help with the glitter steps.

I ended up putting a dot of hot glue on the bottom of each egg to make sure the string stayed secure.

Then it’s time to glitter!  To get the real colorblock look, I covered half of each egg in glitter.  I watered down my Mod Podge a bit and then painted it onto the egg. Make sure you make straight lines so your glitter goes on straight.
