Easter is on its way, so I thought I would share this fun silver metallic egg DIY with you guys. Decorating eggs is always fun, and I love how everyone can make them their own. There is so much inspiration on Pinterest for unique ways to color and display eggs – so here is just one of the many!
- Hard boiled eggs
- Egg dye tablets (you can also paint the eggs, or just leave them white for a clean, simple look)
- Egg dipper – if using dye
- Martha Stewart Liquid Gilding in Silver
- Pencil with unused eraser
- Paint brush
First I dyed the eggs and let them dry. I wanted more of a pastel color to them so I didn’t let the eggs sit in the dye for very long. Once they were dry, I used the metallic silver gilding to make patterns. For easy polka dots, dip a clean eraser into the metallic paint and then apply that gently onto the egg. You can keep adding polka dots by repeating this step in any pattern you like. Wait for one side to dry before rotating around so the paint doesn’t smear.Once I had my polka dots I wanted to mix it up so all the eggs didn’t look the same. I used a paintbrush to paint the lower portion of the egg with the silver liquid gilding. Ta-da! Cute metallic Easter eggs ready for display! These fun eggs will make any Easter shine! Enjoy!
