Golden Easter Eggs

I wanted to do something a little different for this year's Easter egg decorations. When I came across She Knows' post on how to create a marbelized golden egg, I knew I had to try it! These eggs will certainly stand out from the rest, so I would suggest not hiding them ;).

She Knows made these eggs easy to do with their thorough explanation.

I emptied my eggs by using a sharp knife to cut a small hole on each side. Then I took a wooden skewer with the pressure of water to empty the egg. I let them sit over night before I attempted the dying and gold leaf process.

I would also suggest rolling the egg onto the gold leaf, instead of picking the gold leaf up.

Easter Eggs

I placed my eggs in an apothecary jar, and...

in a miniature dish

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!
