Gold Easter Eggs

Hello! Easter is just around the corner and I’ve been working on a lot of Easter projects. Today I’m showing you a set of gold eggs I decorated that was inspired by Kate Spade’s style. I mean, who doesn’t like bold designs, gold, glitter, confetti, stripes and chevron?

Step1

I initially planned to use Martha Stewart’s metallic craft paints, but I didn’t find that I had that golden metallic sheen I was looking for. I ended up using a gold paint pen which worked perfectly! The pen I used was Sakura Pen-Touch Calligrapher in Gold 5.0mm. I purchased it on Amazon but I have also seen it at my local Michael’s. It is opaque so I didn’t need to do a second coat. Don’t press down too hard with the pen because a lot of paint can flood out. This happened to me once so I ended up painting the egg entirely gold.

This is an affiliate link. This means I get paid a commission if you purchase this item through this link. It does not affect your purchase and the price is still the same if you choose not to use my link.

Gold Eggs masked

I cut strips of blue painter’s tape to tape off designs such as stripes and chevrons. Because of the shape of the egg, it is going to be difficult to tape it off neatly and perfectly. Don’t worry, in the end, it will still look nice.

Step5

Once the paint has dried (which is pretty fast), you can peel off the tape.

Step6

I also covered one in glitter by applying regular glue on the egg with a sponge and pouring glitter over it.

Step7

In the end, you can see all the small flaws due to the difficulty of the egg shape, but when you look at the overall results, you won’t really notice it, so do not be discouraged.

I hope you liked my tutorial! Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Ok. This looks easy enough for me to not mess up. I tried a golden egg last year and totally ruined it. Will have to try your method instead! They turned out great! Love yours!

    I love the white and gold combination πŸ™‚ I’m not a big fan of pastels so I don’t really do a lot of decorating for Easter. The colors just don’t go very well in my house, but these would look great and so fresh. This would be so fun for the kids too. Thanks so much for sharing and pinning this!
