Do glittered eggs come from glittery chicks??

I have been in the mood for Spring and decorating for the season lately. I told Jen I wanted to decoupage some eggs and she found this tutorial. I fell in love with those eggs. Here are mine. I am pleased with how they turned out. I might suggest using bigger, flakier glitter, because the Martha Stewart glitter is so fine and seems to have more coverage.
Also, I just tied on these vintage screw on earrings, but I think I am going to get wire clippers and separate the earring from the backing and glue them on.

What do you think?? Are y'all getting Spring fever yet??

I am totally neeeeeding spring to arrive soon!!! But it is hard to get in the springy mood when we have lots and lots of snow on the ground! ;( Oh well...when it is hot this summer...I will think back to these cold days, I suppose! LOL

Have a wonderful day Elise!

It turned out great, Elise! So, you think the larger flake glitter will give it a bit more sparkle instead of coverage?
I am going to measure the windows TODAY! Lori

Yes I am really ready for Spring to get here but not the hot humid summers we have.

Love the egg....I bought some at the dollar store last year and I will have to try this out...

Ok I am back to bed...I am falling asleep at the puter...well my eyes are so hevy from the codeine in the cough syrup.

Your glittered eggs are eggceptional! I love them!
I am ready for Spring but then again with Spring comes bees and I'm deathly allergic to bees. I do love winter because I can run around outside a little more relaxed being the little buzzers are dormat! :)

perfect! and thanks so much for your pictures and the link to inspireco.

I've been thinking about doing some decopage eggs but just had not figured out with what.

These are great because my dining room is mostly black and white.
