Instructions:

Step 1 – Starting at the base of the egg, paint some PVA glue onto the egg.

Instructions:
Step 1 – Working with one colour at a time use the paint brush to paint small brush strokes onto the egg in a random/scattered pattern. Leave paint to dry.
Step 2 – Once paint is dry, repeat step 1 with another colour of paint and again leave to dry.
Step 3 – Continue this process until the whole egg is covered in coloured freckles!

GLITTER EGG

What you’ll need:
● ‘Happy Easter’ Fillable Egg 4pk
● Assorted glitter
● PVA Glue
● Paint brush

Instructions:

Step 1 – Start by painting a thin layer of PVA glue on the inside of the plastic egg.

Step 3 – Once glue is dry, repeat this process again. Paint another layer of glue and sprinkle another glitter over the top.
Step 4 – Continue repeating this process until the entire egg is covered in glitter.
Step 5 – Once you are happy with the coverage of glitter on the egg. Paint a final coat of PVA to set the glitter. The glue will dry clear leaving you with a glittery easter egg!


GEMSTONE EGG

What you’ll need:
● ‘Happy Easter’ Foam Eggs 6pk
● Crafters Choice Gems
● Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Instructions:
Step 1 – Starting at the base of the deco foam egg use a hot glue gun to glue rhinestones on individually.
Step 2 – Continue gluing rhinestones on, working your way up the egg. If you like you can change the sizes of the rhinestones as you go. We started with larger gems at the base and
swapped to smaller gems half way up.
Step 3 – If there are any gaps you can fill them in by gluing more gems into the gaps and layering them on top of one another.
