Crafty Fridays

Happy Friday to all of you lovely readers! I am quite excited about this weekend, since I will be painting our kitchen table. The weather is supposed to be quite warm, (hopefully it will actually be and not just a prediction, as yesterday it was supposed to be a high of 10 and was very cold) and I can get outside and give our old kitchen table a makeover.

But first, I would like to introduce to you Crafty Fridays. Easter is a couple of weeks away and I figured I would share some crafts with you. So, here goes the first craft.

Metallic Easter Eggs

What you will need
-gold leaf (silver, copper), paper towels, cotton gloves, cheesecloth, brush, gilding paste and eggs

How To:

or 5. you apply the gold leaf on the outside of the egg, 6. straighten it gently by using your glove or cheesecloth, 7+8. your final product. 

For this project, I decided to apply the gold leaf inside the egg instead of 

I hope you liked this little how to and will try to make your own golden eggs. 

I hope you have a marvelous weekend!
