How to: Sequin Egg Toppers

Easter is one of those holidays with traditional d├ęcor — pastels, colored eggs, and carrots everywhere. It’s pretty easy to decorate for. But what if you want to spice things up? What if you want something just a little bit different? Add a few sequins and see what happens. These sequin Easter egg cake decorations can be made in minutes.

You will need: styrofoam eggs (from the craft store), lollipop sticks, 2 yards of sequins (per egg), hot glue gun, scissors
Using the scissors, puncture a small hole the width of the lollipop stick in the bottom of the egg. If the paint peels off, it’s okay. The entire surface will be covered with sequins. Insert the lollipop stick in the bottom of the egg. Starting at the top of the egg, place a small amount of hot glue in the center and attach the beginning of your sequin rope. Carefully wrap around the surface of the egg dabbing occasionally with hot glue as you go. Once you get to the bottom, cut the end of your sequin strand, and seal with a small dot of hot glue. Repeat steps for several other eggs in other colors. Place on the top of a cute cake and admire! You can also put the eggs on toothpicks to decorate cupcakes!
