Martha Stewart, the comeback kid, is making the media rounds, promoting her new book, "Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts." Earlier this week, she was on the Today show, demonstrating how to marbleize paper. Her finished samples also included pretty, pastel marbleized eggs. Perfect for Easter, I thought.
Then, the Washington Post ran a story about the book and included directions for another decoration. It’s not exactly about food, but it involves eggs and is so easy that I’d thought I’d share it in case you didn’t see the article.
I also learned that Martha twitters. (Of course, she does. She can do everything.) Time manager that she is, she allows herself 10 minutes a day to do her tweets. Okay, I couldn’t resist. I’m now one of her more than 300,000 followers.
This weekend, I’ll be making these for my Easter table, courtesy of Martha and the Post. How will you be decorating your place?
Gather chicken eggs and, if possible, eggs of other sizes. Make a pinhole on each end of an egg, blow out contents and rinse inside thoroughly. Let dry.
Set out bowls of glitter and pour a small amount of white craft glue into another bowl. Use a small paintbrush to cover an egg with glue, then set the egg in a bowl of glitter, spooning glitter over the entire egg.
Remove the egg carefully from the bowl and dry it on a rack or waxed paper for one hour before displaying.
