What You Need For This Tutorial
Eggs – You can use real hard boiled eggs or faux eggs, which you can buy at a craft store.
Modge Podge – I used modge podge for coating the eggs to help ensure the sprinkles stick.
Foam Brush – We used a foam brush but honestly any paint brush works great, just so you can coat your egg in the modge podge.
Tips For Making These Sprinkle Coated Easter Eggs
- Make sure to evenly coat your eggs in the modge podge. Work somewhat fast as it will dry if it sits too long.
- I used a spoon to coat the eggs in the sprinkles. That way it wouldn’t get smudges with my fingers.
- If the sprinkles get too wet they can bleed in color. Place them on wax paper or even an aluminum foil lined counter to dry.
Can You Eat The Hard Boiled Eggs
You can not eat these eggs. They are simply for looks and for the fun of decorating. Whether you use them to decorate for a centerpiece for your holiday feast or place them outside for your Easter egg hunt.
Does Any Size Egg Work For This Tutorial
Of course! Use large eggs or smaller eggs the choice is yours. You will need more or less sprinkles depending on the size of eggs you buy to use for this egg craft.
Can I Use A Different Type of Sprinkles For This Easter Egg Craft
You could use a different style of sprinkles, but the biggest thing is making sure the sprinkles are smaller in size. These balls work great as it works good at covering the egg really well. If you used say a square shaped sprinkle or oblong it won’t give you that even coat of sprinkles like you will want.
