DIY Cotton Candy Easter Eggs

Of all the holidays throughout the year, the one that I look forward to the most, for DIY’s, is Easter. If you’ve been following along here for a while, you know how much I love to decorate eggs. They’re the perfect blank canvas and make for the prettiest decor!

Last year I experimented with beverage inspired eggs, and this year I’m giving easter eggs a sweet makeover, by dressing them in a little faux cotton candy.

This was simple to do, by using cotton balls and colored paint.

In pink and blue of course!

The glued on cotton balls gave the eggs a sweet and realistic feel. Sprinkled with a little gold glitter for a touch of posh.

Now if only the tiny fairy floss atop these easter eggs was real!

COTTON CANDY EASTER EGGS – DIY

S U P P L I E S

8 large eggs, boiled

Tacky glue 

Gold Glitter (Martha Stewart)

Pink, Blue and Rose Gold Acrylic Paint (I use Martha Stewart)

1 medium tip paint brush

Cotton Balls

I N S T R U C T I O N S 

1. Squeeze the acrylic paints onto a paint palette.

2. Thin each paint color out with a little bit of water (the paint consistency should be runny)

3. Separate cotton balls in to two pieces by pulling them apart.

4. Dip the paint brush in the thinned blue or pink paint and brush it onto the separated cotton balls. The cotton ball will absorb the liquid, so a little paint goes a long way. (You only have to paint the front of the cotton balls since the back will be covered in glue.)

5. Sprinkle painted cotton balls with a little gold glitter.

6. Repeat these steps for all of the cotton balls, painting them in pink and blue. Set aside to dry.

7. With the gold glue, paint an upside down triangle onto the center of your egg, to create the cone. Paint lines into the center of each “cone” to complete the look. Allow 20 minutes to dry.

8. Squeeze glue onto the egg in a circular shape, right above the painted cone.

9. Attach one painted cotton ball to the glue, on the egg, to create the cotton candy. 

10. Give them about 30 minutes to dry completely, you can put them back in the fridge until ready to display!

The eggs look incredibly sweet and almost good enough to eat, when served in a dish or on your favorite egg plate!

 The pink in blue pastel colors are also quite fitting for the spring holiday.

  1. Brandi those are the cutest eggs I've seen ever. Oh my goodness, at first glance sitting in the egg holder they looked like little chicks. So adorable. And the fact they are so easy makes it a win-win for everyone. Awesome job, I'm sure these little cuties will end up in a magazine.
