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!

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 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!

WHAT SUPPLIES ARE NEEDED FOR GOLD PLASTIC EASTER EGGS?

White Plastic Eggs (Note : These are Non edible, since you are spray painting them)
Spray Paint (Vintage Copper / Caramel Latte / Gold)
Fine Point Bistro Chalk Marker

DIY Easter Eggs spray paints
First, be sure to work in a  well ventilated area and give a nice coat of spray paint to each of the plastic eggs.  I painted four eggs in each of my spray paint colors.  They each took a few coats to get a nice even coverage.

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

The good thing about using this Bistro Chalk marker is that it provides a nice clean matte colored line.  And if you make a major whoops, you can just use a damp cloth and it will wipe right off.

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.

    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.
