DIY Glitter Easter Eggs: Birchbox Video Of The Week
There are so many amazing videos on YouTube, we have a hard time keeping up with all of them. You name it, there’s a video about it. Wondering how to turn flat, limp strands into sexy supermodel hair? There’s a video for that. Always wanted to see what a moonwalking pony would look like? There’s a video for that. That’s why we’ve decided to choose one video a week to share with you. Keep reading for this week’s pick. 
We know not everyone’s celebrating Easter this sunday, but when we caught sight of these glitter eggs they were too cute to pass up!  Jessie Jane from Lilyshop shared this easy DIY video to help you add some sparkle to your Easter decor. Jessie goes into a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the glitter eggs, but here are just a few tips I found to be extra helpful:
Use blown-out eggs so it’s easier to apply the glue and glitter.  For a guide on how to blow out eggs, check out this video tutorial.
Apply a thin layer of glue after the initial glitter application has dried to seal everything onto the egg.
