Easter is so early this year! I hate it when Easter comes and there is still snow on the ground. So to get myself in the Easter spirit this year I decided to make some fun metallic easter eggs! I had a bunch of left over foil/leaf from my wedding so I figured that I would put some of it to good use.
- Eggs - hard boiled or blown out (blown out will last longer than just this year)
- Metal Leaf - I used gold leaf, silver leaf and copper leaf
- Spray Adhesive and/or Modge Podge
- Soft Brush
- Washi Tape
I decided to blow out my eggs because I want to be able to keep them for next year too. Once the eggs were ready I started by spraying one with the spray adhesive (you can wear gloves if you don't want to get glue on your hands). I then started to place some of the leaf on the egg, be sure to tear the foil into pieces before so you can just place a piece at a time. Use your brush to help the leaf stick to the glue, and to get out any air bubbles. Continue until the entire egg is covered. You can use Modge Podge instead of spray adhesive if you want.
If you want to make patterns on the egg, place washi tape in the desired pattern and once the leaf is on the egg slowly peel the tape off.
Once your eggs are covered in the foil, you want to cover them with some sort of sealant so they don't peel when you touch them. I used Modge Podge on mine, which also allowed me to fix up any spots where the leaf had come off.
Now you're ready to display your beautifully decorated Easter Eggs. I'd love to see any of the egg creations that you come up with!
