diy gold leaf Easter eggs

Over the past week I have been trying to be more intentional about resting and taking care of my soul. I have taken walks, baked (and eaten!) chocolate chip cookies. I have loved spending time with friends and shopping with Faith at Nordstrom Rack.

I have been enjoying the sunshine, reading Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler and the April edition of Glamour Magazine.IMG_5281

I’ve done a little bit of writing. And a little bit of decorating – which led to a little bit of crafting.

I unpacked my few Easter decorations and found a golden egg my friend Kate had given to Faith one day while we were visiting her store, Guesthouse, in Seattle. After Faith took her egg and most of my bunnies to decorate her room, I was left with one bunny and some candle holders. I decided I needed some of my own golden eggs to complete my little centerpiece.

I set out to Hobby Lobby and got this Set of 12 Paper Mache Eggs for $4.79.

I already had the Speedball Mona Lisa Gold Leaf Kit on hand from another project.

Just follow the directions on the gold leaf kit and voila. Golden Easter eggs.


I set them around some of my glassybaby candle holders and an Easter bunny that I have had for like ever.



I had a few left over and put them in this vintage planter.
