Glittered Eggs

  • Hard-boil eggs, dye to various pink tones and let dry fully.
  • Our eggs were dyed in a bath of hot water (8 ounces) mixed with 1 capful liquid Petal Pink Rit Dye, ¾ capful liquid Lemon Yellow Rit Dye and 1 capful white vinegar. The intensity of the pink depends on how long you leave eggs in dye bath. After removing them, immediately pat eggs dry with a paper towel.
  • Crumple a strip of aluminum foil to make a small ring that will hold an egg upright. Place egg, top down,  into foil ring.
  • Slightly dampen a sponge, dip it into Mod Podge or glue, then lightly apply it to bottom half of egg (the part that’s facing up). Sprinkle glitter over that area.
  • Set eggs aside to dry, then shake off excess glitter.

Note: Eggs are not food-safe if dyed as instructed.

To mimic this glamorous and shimmery look, choose a coarse glitter made of large flakes rather than super-fine sparkles.

Centerpiece

  • Fill a long metal tray with packing peanuts and drape preserved or fresh moss over it.
  • Arrange flowers, candles and eggs (some glittered, others solid) on the bed of moss.

Bunny Place Cards

  • Download bunny template at familycircle.com/hoppyspring and cut out.
  • Place template face down on the back of patterned card stock and trace around it with a pencil.  Repeat as needed.
  • Cut out bunny silhouettes along traced lines.
  • Make tails using a pom-pom maker, following manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Trim excess yarn and glue pom-pom tails to bunny silhouette cards using quick-setting gel glue.
