Materials for Glitter Eggs:
Paper Mache Egg (found at craft stores)
White craft glue
Glitter (coarse glitter would work too, I just had to splurge!)
To handle the egg without touching it, I used a straight pin and pushed it into the bottom of the egg. The egg wobbled around on it but it was no big deal. Also, I used paper mache eggs to avoid the hinge and such on the plastic eggs. I also wanted my glue to coat well, and from experience, glue tends to do weird things on plastic eggs!
I coated the egg with a generous layer of glue using my old foam brush and then started sprinkling glitter over the glue. I was going to pour the glitter into the bowls and roll the egg, but ended up not. It probably would have resulted in better coverage, though! Choose your method. I noticed that on parts of the egg that the glue was thin, the glitter didn't stick very well. You can always paint the egg before you begin so that it coordinates with the glitter.
You can pour the glitter back in the containers, and move on to more colors! I only did three in glitter since I have lots of other eggs planned!
