Gold Leaf Easter Eggs

I’m really loving gold lately. I was a little reluctant to jump right into the gold trend in the beginning, since I have so much silver. But, part of the trend is mixing and matching, so I’ve finally gone for it. I can’t wait to show you my gold inspired Easter table a little later, but for now here’s another little project I’ve fallen in love with -Gold Leaf Easter Eggs.

Supplies:

  • plastic Easter eggs
  • craft paint
  • gold leaf (I used imitation)
  • gold leaf adhesive

I started out with some craft eggs. They worked really well -they are very paintable, unlike a normal plastic Easter egg, and I also love that they’re not breakable so I’ll have them for years to come. Just give your eggs a coat or two of paint in any pretty Easter colour.

After the paint is dry, apply the gold leaf adhesive, and let it set for 15 min., according to the package instructions. The key to remember is not to entirely coat the egg with the adhesive, so that some of the paint colour still shows through. When it’s set, apply the gold leaf.

I hung mine on some branches in a pretty milk glass vase. I’m smitten.

    Very pretty and I have some gold leaf left over from the days when I used to decorate goose eggs! Looking forward to seeing your Easter table – I bet it will look stunning – as usual
