DIY Glitter Easter Eggs (no dye required)!

Grab yourself some eggs (real or artificial and dab away). I used real white and brown (hard boiled) eggs.

Instructions: Place some white glue (or Mod Podge) into a small bowl. If you want to create dots, dab the tip of your finger (or the eraser on the end of a pencil) into the glue, dot onto the egg, and cover with glitter, shaking off the excess. For gold and white, dip half of the egg into the glue mixture and blot excess drips.  Sprinkle with glitter. And voila…you have beautiful and fun Easter eggs in less than an hour.

Gingerbread Mug Hugger Roundup
I was completely floored when I recently spotted these gingerbread house mug huggers and decided I had to do some research on the subject to find out more. After combing the web for the best possible options, I’ve come up with 3 results for creating these adorable mini treats.

1. Make Your Own
Summer at She Leaves A Little Sparkle has an exceptional how-to, including her very own gingerbread recipe and free paper cut outs that can be downloaded for the house template.

Juliette Laura shares her recipe (also with a free template) along with some GORGEOUS photography on how to make her toppers.

2. Semi Home Made
Purchase Betty Crocker Cake and Cookie Mix or Nestle Rolled and Ready Gingerbread Cookie Dough and then use your own cookie cutters (or download the templates from above recipes) for a much quicker process.

3. Buy Your Own
While Anthropologie’s version is currently sold out, I did find these adorable versions at Williams Sonoma. If you’re interested in a less expensive topper, these Gingerbread Folks are a better bargain at $14.95 for 4.
