Opt for a chic lineup this year with vibrant bands of color.

Here's how: To create bands, wrap 1/8-inch-wide double-sided adhesive tape lengthwise around egg and cut to fit—about six to nine strips per egg. Press firmly. Pour fine glitter into a paper coffee filter or bowl, one per color. Working with the darkest colored glitter first, remove paper backing from a tape strip and roll the egg in glitter, pressing down to adhere as much as possible. Repeat for each color desired, using the lightest shade last. Glitter instantly sticks well to tape so don't worry about getting colors in the wrong places. Remove excess glitter by brushing the egg with a soft, clean paintbrush.
