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.

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!
