Faberge eggs are masterpieces of art and jewels that open and contain a hidden gift inside, such as a jewel. They are lavishly decorated and very expensive. Your eggs may not be genuine Faberge, but you can use the decorating style as inspiration for some pretty Easter eggs that will serve as a lovely Easter centrepiece or conceal some gifts of your own.
Break the plastic eggs apart and spray paint both outside halves of the eggs. Gold or silver spray paint will look elegant, but if you are decorating eggs with children and want to skip using paint, just purchase coloured plastic eggs.
Glue ribbon or rick rack around the opening of each half of the egg so when the eggs are put back together, the middle will have a beautiful decoration.
Glue other embellishments to the egg. Glue ribbon roses to the centre of the egg and line the entire egg with rhinestones, or use ribbon to decorate the egg. Fake gems will look lovely around beads or ribbons.
Allow the glue to dry, and snap the eggs back together. Put them into a basket for display, or fill them with goodies to give as treats on Easter.
