DIY Sprinkle Easter Eggs

These pretty sprinkles look yummy, but they’re for decoration only (any eggs that are decorated with glue or paints aren’t for eating), but they last so much longer! If you don’t want to use fresh eggs, you can use Styrofoam versions. A bunch of them in a basket would make for a gorgeous centerpiece.

Happy Easter!
