DIY polka dot easter eggs

It’s always fun to try new and different ways for dressing up Easter eggs. Kara came up with this gorgeous idea for dressing up Easter eggs and we wanted to share it here on the blog for our readers since we know many of you love to get crafty! Polka dots + glitter = LOVE!


Begin by hard boiling the number of eggs you will be making over.


For this project, she chose to use Florentine Gold in Martha Stewart’s line of glitter and also picked up a pack of Zots, circular glue dots, in a medium size.



The Zots can be a bit difficult to work with and difficult to keep circular as you transfer from the backing to the egg. She found it easiest to use her finger and quickly tap the glue dot and pull up. It seemed to keep the dot as perfectly circular as it could be.


She then placed them on the egg in whatever pattern she felt appropriate. It’s a bit difficult to see in the image, but you’ll get the idea in a minute.


Once you have them placed in your desired pattern, pour a large amount of glitter onto a separate bowl or dish.


From there, you want to roll your egg in the glitter to begin covering each glue dot. After a few rotations, you will see that the dots may not be completely coated and you will want to make sure to press the egg into the glitter where each glue dot was placed. It will ensure there will be plenty of shimmer for each dot.


After that, go ahead and gently blow off any excess glitter that might be on your egg after being rolled around.


Voilà! Perfectly glam eggs in time for the festivities.

It would be so fun to try this with several different colors of glitter depending on your decor!

Kara picked up all of her supplies at Michaels, but you should be able to find them at any craft store. Hope you enjoy!
