DIY Golden Easter Egg

This Easter morning I would love to come downstairs and find the Easter Bunny left a nice, soothing, color palate of Easter goodies in our house. I left him a note last year that, while the kids appreciated 50,000 pieces of brightly colored plastic strewn all about the house, it was a bit jarring for the adults in the family. In order to give the good old rabbit a guide for this year, I created a giant golden egg out of a hot pink plastic egg left over from last year. The end result looks like a giant candy egg and can hold a full sized stuffed animal!

Materials

  • Foil
  • Gold spray paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam Brush
  • Giant plastic Easter egg – Michaels sells 3 giant stacking eggs for $20.

How To

Lay foil out in a well-ventilated area and paint with gold spray paint. Let dry.

Once the paint is dry, coat the outside of your egg with a layer of Mod Podge.

Wrap foil around the outside of the egg, pressing it to the Mod Podge. You will likely need to cut or tear some of the excess foil away in spots.
