Glittered in Crushed Glass
Start with your paper mache or wooden eggs and prime them. You can find the eggs in different sizes.
Then take some tissue paper and tear it into small pieces 1"-2". I like using an allover pattern such as this pretty floral.
Using, white glue or Mod Podge, start gluing and placing your pieces all over the egg until completely covered.
The next step is going to give you two completely different looks.
You can use a tea-dye varnish for a vintage look. I don't know if this product is still in stores - but anything like it will work - or an acrylic glaze would be fine too. And don't worry about the folds ~ I love how the varnish collects in the creases.
Or german glass glitter for a sparkly egg.
For the finishing touch, I like to add some vintage lace and buttons.
And paper shreds for display.
Hope you enjoyed the project! Would love to see how you are decorating with eggs this year. Leave a link in the comments for us to visit.
