Easter Egg Craft
My kids and I love to color Easter eggs, each of us trying to make the most artistic looking one. The trouble is our beautiful eggs will get eaten. These beautiful eggs are made from plastic eggs you can buy at the dollar store and can decorate your table for many years.
For this project I used:
Acrylic Gesso (a paint primer)
Acrylic craft paint
Wax tipped tool
Paint the plastic eggs with Gesso and allow to dry completely. You may need to do several coats. Gesso is a paint primer prepares the surface for painting. It is available where ever art supplies are sold.
When completely dry, paint the eggs with your favorite color using acrylic craft paint. Allow to dry completely.
Decide on how you want to embellish your eggs. I chose several different patterns. You can use chalk to make marks to guide you as you glue your rhinestones. E6000 tends to be gloppy, so I like to squeeze the tube slightly over a paper plate and scrape the glue with a toothpick, applying it to the surface of the egg. E6000 provides a strong bond, so I use a drop of glue slightly smaller than the rhinestone. Using your wax tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and place it in the glue, gently pressing down. Continue until your design is complete. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Easy to make and beautiful to look at, this striking table centerpiece will be the finishing touch to your Easter table.

I have been adding bling for over 20 years. Through my projects, I hope you find inspiration.
