Hey there! So, we have had so much fun seeing the response to our FROZEN Easter Baskets! Thank you for all the comments. If you missed them, we have an ANNA-inspired basket and one for ELSA, too. Today I'm sharing how I made the fun DIY glitter eggs that were the perfect addition to my Elsa basket.
To start, I used these great white plastic eggs. I had never see these before, but I am in love! They are actually dyeable and much less messy than real eggs! ($2 @ Walmart.)
This Double Sided Adhesive Kit from Silhouette was such an easy way to add the sparkly snowflakes and text to the white eggs. The kit includes everything you need!
After cutting out these snowflakes and some words on my Silhouette (Elsa and a B monogram for Bella), I applied the adhesive and got to glitterin'!
I used a paintbrush (included) to brush on the glitter. The adhesive is super sticky, so it's really easy to cover! The Silhouette kit comes with fine glitter and also this flocking powder that gave a different texture to a few snowflakes. I love how it turned out!
Once you've covered the whole sticker, you can wipe away the excess glitter with a different, clean paintbrush or even your fingers.
See the flocked gray one on the left?
These were the perfect addition to my little girl's Elsa Easter Basket!
Here are all the details... it's so easy to find blue and icy things once you get going with the theme! Click on the link to see the full post:
If you don't have access to a cutting machine, you could do a similar technique with a small paint brush and Mod Podge. I also used a stencil with the Mod Podge technique for these Glittered Candles:
So...we've been busy little bees lately. It's just more behind-the-scenes and less actual blogging type of busy! We are excited to debut a brand new site design on Wordpress in the next few weeks! We've also been getting ready for our favorite weekend of the year - SNAP - a blogging conference that will be held in Salt Lake City next week. Oh, and taxes. Barf. Anyway, this week we'll be back sharing some more last-minute Easter ideas and talking more about the changes in store for My Sister's Suitcase! Thanks for reading!
