DIY Gold Easter Eggs + Egg Cups

4/2/2012

Happy Monday! I’m back with another hit of gold for Easter today.  I had a few leftover gilded eggs from this project and my obsession with gold and love for Easter just couldn’t stop there. So I took a little gold paint and some washi tape and set to making a few gold dipped, polka dotted Easter eggs, and egg cups too! Tape makes quite the fine egg decor if you’re not feeling the dye method. Here we go!

Supply List:

Eggs
Plastic Eggs
Gold + White Craft Paint
Washi Tape (or other tape)
Hole Punch

I don’t have any particular instruction today, just be creative with those listed supplies! I bought a few cheap egg cups at World Market for $2 each. I painted a few coats of white craft paint over them and then painted the bottom gold.

I hard boiled my eggs and then wrapped one with painter’s tape to make it two-toned gold and white. Then I took to the tape for the rest…

With a little patience, punching out circles of tape is pretty simple.. and there’s no additional adhesive needed or drying time! SCORE! I added a few spots to one of my egg cups and then went to town on both my plastic eggs and the real ones.

And there you have it: a very gilded Easter.

p.s. Chelsea over at Lovely Indeed has some fab washi tape egg ideas too. Clearly it’s what the cool kids are doing this Easter! 😉
