Clever Chicks Blog Hop #25 with a Polka Dot Easter Eggs Tutorial


 Each year I like to try a new way of decorating Easter eggs and when  I became a chicken keeper, the volume really got turned up on the craft-o-meter. My hens' eggs need no adornments to be spectacular, but the crafter in me insists upon embellishing them on occasion. With Easter right around the corner, I couldn't resist adding a little bling to my home-grown eggs this year.
Last Easter, I made these marbelized, "Salad Dressing Easter Eggs," using blown eggs and common salad dressing ingredients. My  tutorial can be found here and while I thought those were simple and fun last year, this year's technique was even easier!

This year's Easter eggs were made using contributions from my hens, some glitter and adhesive dots. I used blown eggs, which I prefer over hard cooked eggs because I can then enjoy them for years to come. This was a great project to do with my daughters because there aren't many steps and there's glitter involved. What more could you ask from a craft project?
MATERIALS NEEDED:
Eggs (hard-cooked or blown. Find my egg blowing tutorial here.)
Glitter
Clear adhesive dots (I used Zots from Michael's Crafts)
paper plates
dry paint brush
 Apply one dot at a time to the egg.
 Pour glitter onto plate.
Press adhesive dots firmly into the glitter.
 Brush off excess glitter.
 That's it! Simple and fun!

  178. The Predator Preventer looks amazing...I have been using 'The Scarecrow" which hooks up to a garden hose and has a motion detector...but it is a bit of a pain having all of that garden hose (especially because I have 3 gardens and they are spread all across the yard) and it is hard on the water pump (which is always going as a result).
