how to make sequin Easter eggs

My daughter Maddie, who’s in grade two learned to make sequin Christmas ornaments at school this year, and really loved making them.  In fact, we bought the materials and made a few at home too.  One day in the dollar store, I noticed they had styrofoam Easter eggs, and thought she might like to use her skills to make us an Easter version with sequin eggs.  You need styrofoam eggs for this project.  Plastic Easter eggs won’t work for this project.

These beautiful eggs are really very simple to make.  You can make them in any colors or different patterns.  Sequins come in so many beautiful colors.  We went with a combination of pink sequins, purple, white and gold.  I love the iridescent sequins best of all.  They’re perfect for making glitter Easter eggs.  You can also choose the size of sequins you use.  A small sequin is great for a really detailed pattern.  These handmade pieces are a really fun Easter craft, and they’re very easy to make with just a few craft supplies.  Working away on these, choosing your colors and patterns, is sure to get you into the Easter spirit.

Sequin PIns

You will need sequin pins for this project.  They’re shorter than regular straight pins, so you will be able to push them into the Easter eggs without them poking through the other side.  They have a flat head on them, which holds the sequin in place.  I did have a little trouble finding the pins, when I originally did this project a few years ago, but now I see they’re available at the craft store.  You can also order them online.  They come in different colors, so you can choose nickel, or gold, or antique depending on your preferences.

  • sequin pins
  • assorted sequins
  • styrofoam Easter eggs


    1. To make your sequin Easter egg, put a pin through the hole in a sequin, and then into the styrofoam Easter egg, pusing it all the way in. It is best to start at one end of the egg, and work your way around in rows, with a very slight overlap of each sequin.
    2. Continue doing this until the whole egg is covered.

Once you have your materials you simply fasten the sequins to the styrofoam egg using the pin, and creating any pattern you like.  It’s really simple to do, just a little time consuming.

Maddie and I tried a few different patterns on our sequin glitter eggs.  Simple stripes turned out great.

Since they are Easter eggs we tried the classic zig-zag too.

Easter Egg ideas

My favourite though, were the random ones which we did in purples and one in different pinks.

DIY Sequin Easter Eggs


A variation on just putting the pin through each sequin is to layer a seed bead on top.  This will create a raised layered pattern.  Just be sure that the holes in your beads are large enough for the sequin pins to fit through.  Using beads gives you the option of even more colors, and patterns.

We displayed our Easter eggs in a pretty glass bowl, with some spring tulips.  I love how they look.  They almost look like vintage treasures.  These would also be so gorgeous for Easter egg hunts.  And for creative entrepreneurs these would be great creative goods items to sell at craft fairs or bazaars in the spring, or as made-to-order items online as Etsy sellers.

  1. these are beautiful… but i have a question: did you have trouble with the pins not being able to be pushed throught due to the other pins already in place. i tried this the week before easter on one foam egg and it was pretty difficult. anyway, would luv your take on it.

  2. Hi, Sorry to hear you’re having a little trouble with yours. We used sequins pins, not sure if you did. They are shorter than regular pins, so they work a little better. Also, if you’re having trouble pushing the pins in, you might try wearing a thimble. One last thing, if you used very small sequins, you’d require more, and might have more trouble. We used a medium size of sequins. Hope these tips help. Best of luck,
