How cute are these glittery polka dot Easter eggs? The idea comes from Better Homes and Gardens and is genius in its simplicity: affix double-sided glue dots to hardboiled eggs, roll them around in some glitter, and voila! Festive Easter eggs that don’t require any dye.
This is also fun to do with the kids. Simply set up some paper plates of glitter outside, help younger kids put glue dots on the eggs, and let them go at it. When you’re done, you’ll have pretty Easter decor (that you can then turn into deviled eggs or egg salad).
- Hardboiled eggs (unpeeled)
- Glue dots (found at craft stores)
Pour glitter into shallow dishes. Affix several glue dots on an egg.
Roll the egg around in glitter so that all the glue dots are covered. Shake or brush off the excess (a clean, dry small makeup brush really helps with this!).
Once all the eggs are decorated, place them in an egg holder (the one pictured here is Williams Sonoma’s ceramic egg tower) or a pretty bowl.
When I make these as part of our Easter brunch centerpiece, I’m going to dye a few of the eggs before attaching the glue dots. I think that will look super pretty! Imagine a pastel pink egg with bolder pink glitter dots. Just thinking about it makes me happy!
