The Easy, No-Mess Way to Make Glitter Easter Eggs


I may have to turn in my craft blogger card for admitting this out loud but I hate decorating Easter eggs. The traditional ways anyway. It's just so....messy. And doing it with kids? No way. Now, I DO decorate Easter eggs with my son. But only because I feel like I'd be a bad mom if I didn't. 

That being said, any time I can find a way to craft with my kid that still has a great outcome AND is less messy, I'm going to jump on it. So when I wanted to make glitter eggs, I originally thought it was going to be a grown-up only craft. While working on the project, I realized there was an even better way to go about it - a NO MESS way to go about it. And I love how they turned out!

Directions

Step 1: Cut Strips
Unwrap your Duck Tape and cut a strip of tape that is about 7 inches long. Cut the tape into narrow strips.


Step 2: Wrap
Wrap the narrow strips of tape around the egg in whatever pattern you like. Go to town. Be creative.


That's it!

Seriously, this craft couldn't be any easier. As long as a grown up uses to scissors to cut the tape for your little ones, kids can get in on the egg decorating action, too - and NO MESS. Did I mention there's no mess? I might be a teensy bit excited about that part.

Here are some of the eggs I made for inspiration:
