Silver & Gold for Easter

In this post, I will show you one more way you can decorate your Easter eggs this spring. Aren't these eggs  just gorgeous?


I think they are beautiful. And you can make your own gorgeous gold and silver eggs. The eggs in the picture are ostrich eggs, but you can use regular eggs as well.



All you need are some silver and gold leaf sheets and a foam brush or toothbrush. First, blow out your egg, wash it and dry it. Take one leaf at a time and flatten them down on the surface of the egg with the toothbrush.  After the surface of the egg is covered, you can take a cotton ball and polish the metal to make it shine. You could apply a layer of varnish if you wanted. It will make the egg smoother and shinier. The egg below does not have a layer of varnish, but the other ones do.


Hope you like them. Do give this craft a try. It will make for quite a beautiful Easter decoration.

  1. What a fabulous idea! I have lots of gold leaf around the house. Next time I bake I will blow the yolk out to collect some eggs for this fantastic idea!

  6. Those are so pretty. I'm just hopping over from the Ladies Home Journal article about your eggs. I love the eggs that are a bit two-toned - it looks like you rubbed some stain on them or something (like the first egg you show).
