Stained Glass Mosaic Easter Eggs
If you are like me, Easter really sneaked up and took you by surprise this year. Seems like just yesterday I was packing away Christmas.
I love a pretty basket of traditionally colored Easter eggs, but with all the “blingy” egg ideas out there, I started feeling a bit like “EbanEaster Scrooge” or The “Grabbit That Stole Easter”.
My basket of eggs seemed a bit sad, and well…plain.
Here is what I came up with as a solution to my Easter decorating woes.
This is SO fun and SO cool. The idea is for making stained-glass mosaic Easter eggs.
Stained glass mosaic eggs are a quick and easy way to brighten your holiday table. They will look best mixed in with some “plain” dyed eggs in complementary colors. The only thing needed is tissue in bright colors,Mod Podge, (or even Elmers glue and water will do), hard boiled eggs, a small brush and clear sealant spray like Krylon.
Pretty Easter Table Centerpiece
Stained glass mosaic eggs are like little church windows. Mix them in with some brightly colored “plain” eggs in a pretty basket with Easter grass. They will look lovely along with some fresh flowers, perhaps daffodils or Easter lilies.
Now you have a pretty centerpiece for Easter brunch on the deck or even a formal Easter dinner. Follow the steps below to make these easy and unique Easter eggs.
Cut bits of brightly colored tissue. Make some smaller ones to fill in tiny spots. Make them all in different shapes.
This looks a bit like papier mache, but it is much simpler. Just brush on a solution of white glue and water or Mod Podge.
There is no need to toss out slightly cracked eggs when making stained glass mosaic eggs. The tissue paper will cover the cracks.
Spray on a clear sealant spray.
