Make some gorgeous gold foil easter eggs! What a unique way to decorate with the kids! I'd love a bowl of blown out eggs as a centerpiece for Easter!
- Faux, paper mache eggs (You can use real eggs - just hard boil them or blow them out first)
- Acrylic paint - white + colors of your choice
- Liquid Gold Leaf
- Paint brush
- Craft sponge
- Floral Foam
- Flat head pins
In a piece of floral foam, push in flat head pins. This will be your drying station so the eggs can dry elevated so your paint doesn’t smudge.
Paint your eggs white. If you are using dark colors you can omit this step if you want, but for lighter colors it’s a must!
Allow the paint to dry and then paint your choice of color.
Allow to dry again. Luckily this doesn’t take long to dry!
Cut a piece of craft sponge to use in the gold leaf. Before opening, shake your gold leaf well. If you don’t it will come out a reddish color.
Pour a bit of gold leaf onto a paper plate and sponge it as little or as much as want on your eggs.
Allow to dry and display!
