Glitter Eggs & Sprinkle Pops

Today, Pops & Podge is celebrating our one month anniversary! Since Claudia and I merged our blogs a month ago, we have been working very hard to make sure this the best blog ever.  We are quite happy that we have you all here with us today to celebrate...Happy Anniversary to us!

These two incredibly easy projects are guaranteed to bring a little more sparkle to your Easter!  I have a friend who says, "glitter makes everything better".  I think I have to agree!

In the spirit of Easter, I picked up some paper mache eggs at Micheal's.  Then I started to paper mache them.  It took me an hour and half and to do one egg.  So I gave up.  I know I'm not setting a very good example.  But I was trying to think of all you and be respectful of your time.  But here is one, just to show you...


If you have time, go for it! For me time is pretty precious, so I decided to just paint the eggs. MUCH faster!  All you need for this project is paper mache eggs, a little paint in the colors you want, iridescent glitter, and some all purpose glue.
Paint the egg, I did 2-3 coats each.  Then I painted on some all purpose glue, like Elmers.  Or you could use Mod Podge. Then sprinkle on your glitter.  I heart iridecent glitter, but you could use any color.  Although if you want whatever (paint or paper) underneath to show through, best to go with the iridencent.  Let dry.  All done!
I might seal them with glitter blast. But for now, I think they are just perfect the way they are! 
What do you think...? Sparkly huh!

The second project is a little sweet treat for the kiddos on Easter.  And it is oh so easy!! 
You need Marshmallows, lollipop sticks, sprinkles and water.

Step 1: Stick the marshmallow on the stick.
Step 2: Dip it in the water as far high as you want the sprinkles to go.  Tap off excess water.
 Step 3: Dip in the sprinkles.
 Step 4: Eat them! 

See pretty easy right and cute for sure! My husband calls them sugar on a stick and forbade me from giving one to our 2 year old little boy. Hmmm, I better go hide them. I think I might just wrap them in cellophane bags and let them return for his Easter basket :)

Happy Easter,
Christie
