Glitter Polka Dot Eggs

Happy first day of spring! Who’s in the mood to decorate eggs? Every year I try a little something new when it comes to coloring Easter eggs. Some of my favorites so far have been the year I dyed them using silk ties, {that was quite the mess process!} and the time I used white crayon to draw on them before coloring them with kool-aid. This year I opted for something a little less complicated, and something that I could keep around for a while too. Decorative eggs I found at the craft store with glitter polka dots created with the Silhouette double-sided adhesive and glitter...

This same technique would be fun with easter shapes or words, and super kid friendly too.

To create your own glitter polka dot eggs…

Using your Silhouette, cut small circles out of the double-sided adhesive. Remove the yellow liner and adhere the dots to your eggs.

Remove the white liner exposing the adhesive.
Pour a small amount of glitter onto a piece of paper and roll the egg over the glitter until all of the dots are covered.

Using a paint brush, remove any excess glitter. And… you’re done! Easy peasy.

Place them in an egg cup with a print and cut name flag, and they make for great place cards too!

  1. I definitely love drawing on the eggs with crayons and then dying! Super super fun.

  2. wow love this idea..

  3. That’s so cool!

    Oh, and shall I ask.. I recently bought the Cameo and still learning. I wanted to print and cut in printable magnet paper something cute for my fridge.

    So I bought bee design no. 39896 and ladybug no. 40263 and when I open them in the Silhouette to print… They are all tiny separate little shapes!!

    How can I put them together, to colour them and print them?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi! You’ll first want to ungroup the shape so that you can move each piece. Then, you can click on each piece, open the fill color window and select the color you want each piece to be. Turn on the registration marks and you are all set to print then cut. For more print and cut tips you can view a tutorial here…

      Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

  4. Just like that……brilliant 🙂

  5. Very pretty! So much better to use adhesive than glue.

    1. Laurel, your eggs turned out beautifully 🙂 I love the colors you chose.
