Here is a fun Easter Egg decoration project that will liven up any room during the day and night. These Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs are so easy to make and a blast to look at any time of the day. The steps for this simple Night Light Easter craft project are:
- 8 to 10 Large Eggs
- Egg Carton
- Tulip Glow in the Dark® Dimensional Fabric Paint
- Easter Basket
- Raffia or Easter Grass
1. Hard Boil 8 to 10 Eggs. Place eggs in a saucepan with water reaching at least 2 inches above the eggs. Bring water to a boil. Cover pan and take off of heat. Let eggs stand in the water for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then remove eggs from water using tongs (Where is Mom Now That I Need Her). If you want eggs that will last longer, you may wish to drain yolks out of eggs and rinse rather than hard boiling them. I took the easier route because it is less labor intensive.
2.After Eggs have Cooled, Decorate One Half of Each Egg. Stand eggs up in an egg carton or other holder. Decorate the half of each egg that is visible in the holder with Tulip Glow in the Dark® Dimensional Fabric Paint. The pack that I purchased at the craft store offered orange, pink, white, blue and green paints. Paint will take about two hours to dry.
Then you can flip eggs and do the other side. Allow eggs to dry again and then touch up any paint areas that were missed. You may have to do touch up in the middle of the eggs and then lay them on their sides for final drying.
For the eggs that say hip and hop, turn eggs on their sides and use stencil to trace out words. Then go over tracing with the fabric paint. Let those two eggs dry on their sides.
3.Arrange the Eggs in an Easter Basket with Raffia or Easter Grass. I was able to get the basket and raffia at a dollar store. I also scattered some jelly beans into the arrangement.
4. Set basket with eggs out in sunlight for a few minutes. The sunlight will activate the glow in the dark ingredients in the paint.
5.Enjoy your cool egg arrangement day and night!
