How To Make Gold Leaf Easter Eggs
1. 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. I went for pastel shades of green, blue, purple, and pink.
2. 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 the adhesive is set, apply the gold leaf.
I hung mine on some branches in a pretty milk glass vase. I’m smitten.
With pretty golden Easter eggs, life really is a party!
