There are Easter eggs for creative kids — something tells us it’ll be all about the Minions this year — and then there are Easter eggs for full-grown fashionistas. This season, bypass childhood nostalgia and opt for Easter egg designs that are totally haute.
1. Glitter Easter Eggs
Leave it to Martha to master the glitter-coated Easter egg (I mean, who else? She practically invented glitter). The project above uses powdered glitter and requires that eggs are blown out first. Get the full tutorial here. (Via MarthaStewart.com)
We also love the glitter Easter eggs over at Chez Two Black Flats, where the crafters get creative with painted-on glitter designs in addition to solids, as well as the half-dipped glitter eggs over at This Is Glamorous.
2. Graphic Metallic Eggs
If you’ve got an artistic eye and a steady hand, you can recreate these graphic, metallic beauties. In fact, they’re so glam, you may want to use wooden “eggs” so you can preserve them for Easters to come. The eggs above were created using metallic leaf, Washi tape, ribbon, and spray adhesive. Get the whole how-to here. (Via Miss Renaissance)
Other graphic Easter eggs we’re loving are these black-and-white beauties: Doodle eggs by The Caroline Johansson.
3. Beaded Easter Eggs
Just like a string of pearls adds instant elegance to an outfit, so do pearl-like beads wrap Easter eggs in a layer of glam. The eggs above are pretty simple to DIY. All you need are strings of beads and a hot-glue gun (and some patience to make sure your beads align). Though the crafter here used plastic eggs, you can also use blown-out eggs or wooden eggs. Get the tutorial here. (Via Puddy’s House)
We’re also digging the beaded Easter eggs at Ladles and Jellyspoons.
