DIY Metallic Easter Eggs

Spring is officially here and Easter is on it’s way!  Honestly, what a wonderful time of the year… although, I heard some of you are STILL getting snow and that just is plain wrong.  Hopefully I can cheer you snow folks up with my DIY Metallic Easter Eggs today!

I found a box in my closet a few weeks ago labeled, “Spring.”  I opened up it and found all my spring projects from last year and a few random items that I never got around to using.  These simple eggs were going to be transformed last year, but lucky me, I get to play with them this year!

Step one is heading out to a well ventilated area and spray painting the eggs.  I painted four eggs in each color and they each took a few coats to cover.

After the eggs were dry, it’s time to do some decorating!

I did four different designs; a cross pattern, horizontal stripes, polka dots and vertical stripes.

I kept trying to decide on a favorite pattern and I’m not sure if I can.

I’m leaning towards polka dots and horizontal stripes.

    1. Oh, thank you Jennifer! It’s not my typical Spring colors, but I sure love how these metallic eggs turned out! I’ll definitely be linking up again at your party.

  2. The color mix is great! And yes I have actually tried drawing on them before. I used permanent markers on blown out eggs. They turned out nice (not quite as cool as this). It is really the fixed palette that makes these great.
