Easter Egg Craft
The right centerpiece can add a touch of elegance to your table for your holiday gathering. In my last blog, I showed you how to make colorful sparkle Easter eggs. In this tutorial, I will show you how to make Easter eggs with a more Victorian look.
For this project I used:
Gesso ( a paint primer)
Clear sparkle glitter
16ss and 10ss white half pearls
Begin by painting the plastic eggs with Gesso. Gesso is a paint primer that is available where ever art supplies are sold. You can either use white paint over the Gesso or as I did, paint several coats of Gesso on the eggs allowing each coat to dry completely. When painting the last coat, sprinkle the clear glitter on the wet paint and allow to dry.
Cut a piece of ribbon/lace to fit around the egg. Initially, I used Gem Tac but for some reason this glue which normally dries clear, dried yellow. E6000 worked better so I switched to using that. Glue the ribbon/lace along the seam of the egg. Allow to dry. When dry, glue pearls onto the ribbon/lace. Place a drop of glue slightly smaller than the pearls and using your wax tipped tool or tweezers, place the pearl in the glue and gently press down. Continue gluing pearls until your eggs are embellished. Allow to dry completely.
Perfect to add to your collection or start a new dazzling one. These eggs are sure to add a touch of elegance to your table.
Half pearls are available from:
I have five kids and often feel like I am running a zoo. I love to craft and do so in whatever spare time I have.
