Good morning! I am having so much with Spring crafts this week. I hope they are inspiring you to be creative or at least helping you to look forward to Spring! If you missed day one of the series, you can find the Butterfly Spring Wreath here.
Today’s craft is for Easter or brunch and only requires two materials. Egg cups and craft paint!
DIY Gold Dipped Egg Cups
Materials for gold dip egg cups:
Plain white egg cups (I found mine at Hobby Lobby for under $2)
Gold Craft Paint
Hold your egg cup over a cup or bowl and squeeze paint onto it while you rotate the cup around to get the coverage you want. It will take a lot of paint but you can reuse the paint in the dish. Wait for some of the paint to drip off and then set on scrap paper to dry.
While the egg cup is drying, paint will still be dripping off. Move your cup around every few minutes to avoid the egg cup sticking to the paper.
Let your egg cups dry over night before using them. The paint will take a few days to completely cure.
I tried my hand a marbling. To get a similar effect, use a few drops of fingernail polish into a cup of water. Swirl with tooth pick to create a marbled design. Roll the egg on the surface of the water to pick up the paint and set to dry. Move quickly because the paint will change into a film in the water.
Do you see my old ball egg with the flower? Metallic sharpies are magical!
Here is how they look at my Easter table setting with DIY water color and gold leaf eggs. They look so elegant and are so easy to make. Now I am ready for brunch! Have a lovely day,
