“EASY instructions - please read!!! -> Gorgeous decorative eggs, these are not for peeling unless you want a house full of glitter! My recommendation is to just prepare them raw or boiled up to a week before your Easter brunch or dinner, use them for that day and toss them. Beautiful to look at, but disposable! Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • egg, at room temperature (use a variety of sizes, ostrich eggs, duck eggs, jumbo chicken eggs to small chicken eggs, quail egg)
  • glue
  • powdered glitter, these come in an array of colors, which can be mixed to create different shades. For added shimmer, or silver glitter

Directions

  1. The easiest way is to decorate the eggs raw and only bring them out for a day in a decorative vase -- OR you can boil them and leave them out for a couple of days -- OR blow them out and have them last for a very long time.
  2. TO BLOW OUT EGGS: Working over a bowl, pierce one end of a raw egg with a pin. Pierce other end, and use pin to enlarge hole slightly and break yolk. With your mouth or an egg blower, blow into smaller hole, forcing contents of egg through larger hole into bowl. Rinse inside of eggs and dry thoroughly. Use the eggs to make a nice omelet or scrambled eggs after you are done decorating.
  3. Brush craft glue onto egg. Gently set in bowl of glitter. Spoon glitter over egg, covering entire surface. Remove from bowl; set on wax paper to dry for at least 1 hour.
  4. Pile eggs up in a simple metallic basket or for an elegant statement, you can display glittered eggs in a glass hurricane or clear bowl.
