Decorating Easter Eggs with Flocking - PowdersI got a set of Martha Stewart’s Glitter Flocking Powers a couple years ago and after a colossal failure, I kinda packed them away (figuratively and literally.) After cleaning up for my Teeny Tiny Craft Room Tour, I rediscovered these beautiful colors and decided to try them out again! So glad I did because now we can all learn from my mistake: Flocking powders work best on a super small scale. Using them for accent scrapbook pieces or for decorating Easter eggs is perfect.
