Decorating Easter Eggs With German Glass Glitter

Decorating Easter Eggs With German Glass Glitter at www.mom4real.com

Decorating Easter eggs is one of our favorite things to do in the spring.  This year, I wanted our Easter eggs to be spectacular, and glittery.  My good friend Lori from Vintage Charm Restored sent me some beautiful german glass glitter and some Maison Blanche paint samples around Christmas time, and I have been saving them for just the right project.  I picked up some inexpensive paper mache eggs at Hobby Lobby this weekend, and got to work.

I painted each egg with Maison Blanche’s Sugar Cane first.  Once the paint was dry, I painted on my designs using glitter Mod Podge.

I then sprinkled the glitter over the Mod Podged design.

I love the way the German glass glitter sparkles…it’s delicate, but sparkly and well, just perfect.

I am so pleased with the way they turned out!  I think my favorite is the polka dot egg!

Have you ever used or heard of German glass glitter?  I plan on making more of these with some fine silver glitter I have as well.

Happy Easter, friends!

    I love your eggs ! I too love to decorate eggs, I haven’t made mine this year as of yet but when I do it usually consists of lots of glitter ! Yes I have heard of German glitter glass, it is quite expensive. I bought some off a friend but it was the very fine glitter glass. It is gorgeous but sticks to everything in sight. Mine doesn’t have the sharp edge that the bigger glitter glass has but is still made of glass. It also was quite expensive. I have silver and white but no colours.
    You have made your eggs so pretty, they will be lovely on display !

    I was so glad when I read that you used papier mache eggs. I thought you had painted and glittered on real eggs, and I knew there was no way I could replicate that because I’m way too clumsy and heavy handed.

    My favorite is the swirly egg. So pretty. And I think Sugar Cane is my new favorite Maison Blanche color. I just painted with it recently, and it’s such a pretty color, especially when you add wax to it.

    So cute!! :) I’ve always wanted to use German glitter glass but was afraid to because of my cats. They’re not well behaved (kinda crazy) but when I get a craft room WITH A DOOR! I’m all over it, every color
    Beautiful eggs :)
