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 pretty DIY Metallic Easter Eggs today!
Fake Speckled Egg Decor
A few weeks ago, I found a box in my closet and it was labeled, “Spring.” I opened up it and found all kinds of spring projects and plastic eggs from last year. I also found a few random items that I never got around to using. These simple speckled eggs were going to be transformed last year, but lucky me I get to play with them this year!
What supplies are needed for Metallic Easter Eggs?
- Fake eggs (can be white plastic, wooden, etc…)
- 3 Spray paints ( Vintage Copper, Khaki Beige + Gold)
- Fine Point Chalk Marker
How to make DIY Metallic Easter Eggs?
First, be sure to work in a well ventilated area and give a nice coat of spray paint to each of the faux eggs.
I painted four eggs in each of my spray paint colors. They each took a few coats to get a nice even coverage. I loved these colors, they reminded me of antique or vintage metal easter eggs.
Adding Chalk Paint to Easter Eggs
After the eggs are fully dry, it’s time to do some decorating!
The good thing about using this Chalk marker is that it provides a nice clean matte white line. And if you make a major whoops mistake, you can use a damp cloth and it will wipe right off.
Minimalist details on Metallic Eggs
I painted/drew four different designs on the eggs. One design was a small cross pattern, a horizontal stripes, fun polka dots and simple vertical stripes.
I kept trying to decide on a favorite pattern but I am not quite sure if I can! I loved how each of them turned out.
I am leaning towards the polka dots and horizontal stripes.
Easter Eggs in cardboard carton
Once the eggs are completely dry, you can style them any way you like! I tucked some faux fern greenery under a cardboard egg carton and just loved how it looked.
