How to Make Glittery Cardstock Easter Eggs (Step-by-Step)

1. Print & Cut Template

Start by printing the template on cardstock and cutting out the eggs.

2. Trace Lines with Glue

Use school glue to trace the black lines contained within the eggs. Or, if you’re using my blank Easter egg template, use the glue to create a fun design!

Tip: You can use a pencil to draw an outline of your design before you trace it with glue. As long as the lines are fully covered with glue, the glitter should cover them completely once your project is done drying.

3. Add Glitter

While the glue is still wet, sprinkle on some fine glitter in whatever colour or combination of colours you choose.

Tip: I recommend placing your eggs onto a sheet of newspaper so you can easily get rid of the excess glitter without getting it all over your work surface. Glitter has a way of getting everywhere anyway, but at least this should minimize the mess!

4. Let Dry

Once the glue is dry, you’ll be left with pretty glittery eggs!

5. Add Gemstones (Optional)

If you wish, once the eggs are done drying, you can decorate them further by adding little gemstones or other items!
