Polka-Dot Glitter Eggs – Using a crafts punch, punch circles from double-sided adhesive. Attach them to the eggs. Pour different colors of glitter into separate bowls. Roll each egg in glitter; remove excess with a clean paintbrush. For a multicolor egg, place a few stickers on an egg at a time. Roll in glitter, remove excess, adhere more circles, and repeat with a different color of glitter. Found via bhg.com.

Use a bit of leftover wool, start at one end of a ball of wool (to get a striped effect, use wool that’s dyed multiple colors) and make a 1/2-inch coil. Hot-glue the coil to one end of your egg, and press with your fingers to secure. Wrap the yarn slowly around the egg, securing with dabs of hot glue at 1/4-inch intervals. When you’re close to the other end of your egg, cut the yarn and finish your coil. this tutorial found at bhg.com.
