This fun and easy DIY is a great way to add vibrant pops of colour to your easter table. All you need is a hot glue gun!
- One dozen plastic eggs (or real eggs, but that seems like a lot of work for something that goes bad).
- 100-200 plastic gemstones in varying colours and sizes
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Cute pipe-cleaner chicks for display purposes
How to make it
Step 1: Lay out your materials. I try and flip as many of the gemstones right side up as I can.
Although the colours are laid out pretty haphazardly, I don’t want to end up clumping too many similar stones together.
Step 2: Start by gluing the bigger stones first. It will help fill the space and make it easier to place the medium and smaller sized.
Step 3: Once you’re satisfied with the layout of larger gemstones, start added the medium sized stones.
I use tweezers to place the stones because they’re too small to hold and get close to the scalding hot tip of my glue gun. It spares my fingerprints and keeps the glue where it needs to be.
Step 4: Start adding the smaller stones to fill in the gaps.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the egg is complete! It might take a while to do each egg, but if you look at them as investments in future decorations it will be well worth it.
