Every Easter When I was a child, my mom would spend hours blowing out eggs for my sisters and I to decorate. Whether it was dye, stickers, paint or glitter… you name it, we used it to create our “masterpieces”. Since those days my taste for decorating has become more refined, but I will never forget the memories of decorating easter eggs each year. I haven’t actually decorated easter eggs in quite some time but this year I really wanted to try out these gold leaf eggs I saw on Martha Stewart’s website. I ended up boiling my eggs but after these beauties were complete I regretted not blowing them out. They are the most glamorous and elegant easter eggs I have ever seen, and although they do take some time to complete the result is absolutely stunning.
Step 2: While you are waiting for your eggs to cool, add water and food colouring to mason jars to create the dye for the eggs. Here is a chart to give you an idea of dye to water ratios and dye colours
Step 4: If you decide to only gold leaf half of your eggs you will need to securely wrap washi tape or masking tape around the eggs. Apply a thin lucite layer of gold leaf adhesive onto your egg and allow to dry until tacky.
