With so many different varieties of glitter available now — chunky or fine, glass or plastic, pastels or jewel tones — it's easy to add just a soupçon of sophisticated sparkle or a grand slam of glitzy glam to your holiday craft projects. And if you've ever been worried about getting glitter everywhere, it's even easier to clean up than you might think:
- Work over a sheet of paper or a paper plate when sprinkling. Then you just fold the paper in half and pour excess glitter back into its container
- Use a lint roller or double-stick tape to grab stray glitter from your clothes and carpet
- Try a mini keyboard vacuum for catching fly-aways on your table or floor
Here are some super sweet DIYs to give your Easter a bit more shimmer and shine.
Give any egg — real, foam or plastic — a gorgeous glitter coat with a little decoupage medium or watered-down white glue. The colors of these Easter eggs
are so beautiful!
Wall art couldn't be easier with a masked off silhouette and some glitter. This bunny is great
for the holiday, and how cute would a trio in different colors be for a child's bedroom?
Just like leaving dirty footsteps near the fireplace where Santa has been, you can use this technique
to make pretty paw prints where the Easter bunny left the baskets — with no damage to your carpet!
These little guys
are perfect to hang on your Easter basket or even a baby shower gift. Adding glitter makes clay critters ever so much cuter.
Any holiday is more fun for the kiddos when slime is involved! Imagine their delight when they have to dig through a glossy glop of glittery goo to get to their wrapped candy and little plastic toys. Try making this nontoxic slime
in a bucket instead of putting shredded paper grass in a basket!
After blowing out the egg from the shells, it's easy to add spots and stripes of glitter to create a very elegant Easter centerpiece
for your dining table.
