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!
- Hardboiled eggs cooled and dried
- Duck Brand Glitter Crafting Tape in silver, pink and blue.
- Scissors (use your junk scissors)
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.
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:
