The blogger behind this idea matched the color numbers to her Pantone chip book, but you definitely don’t have to be as particular!

Our favorite part about this DIY? How easy it is! Glitter is the easiest way to add some flair to simple Easter eggs–no need to go design crazy! We love the simple polka dots and stripes here, but you can totally go all out and cover the whole egg in glitter. Also, no need for dye…we love how this blogger used natural brown and white eggs to create a cohesive centerpiece.
