It’s a few days until Easter and I decided I needed to get cracking on my egg decor! Metallic copper seems to be trending lately and since I loved how my copper pumpkins turned out last October, I figured why not make some copper and glitter eggs for Easter.

I found these awesome faux eggs that you can color or dye with vinegar like normal eggs. How cool are they? No more draining yokes from shells or cracked hard-boiled funky rainbow eggs that remain uneaten and get thrown away. These are great for holiday home decor.

I hand painted them with metallic copper paint, let them dry and then painted on a bit of glue. Next, I dipped them in glitter to add a little more spark! They are super easy to make and you don’t have to be an artist to get the designs right. Just add some painters tape to keep your lines crisp!

easy way to paint easter eggs,

Use painters tape to tape off half of the egg. Paint with 3 coats of the metallic paint and let them dry. I propped them on washi tape rolls to dry.

To add glitter to the eggs: simply paint glue over half of the egg and pour glitter over the egg. Shake off the excess. Let it dry.

To add the polka dots: paint small dots over half of the egg, then pour glitter over the glue and shake off excess. After the top half dries paint dots on the bottom of the egg and let it dry. And that’s it!
