Gold Animal Easter Eggs DIY

Hi All! We’re already here at the week before Easter. I hope you love this Golden Animal Easter Eggs DIY as much as I do.   Allie, my daughter, and I came across these little animal figurines at Michael’s and the idea popped into my head.  The design is so clean and simple, yet whimsical and happy making!

I grabbed the most springy animals of the collection, but gold and glitter makes almost anything adorable, don’t you think? I love the gold against the white, but they would look just as cute atop some dyed eggs as well.

This spring is very sad for me because I just found out my Father is terminally ill with melanoma.  There is so much sadness in my heart right now. These gold beauties help raise my spirits just a bit.

This DIY is quick and easy.  So round up some animals and a little paint and glitter and have at it!  Don’t forget to grab your family and friends  and tell them how much you love them!

:: Paint each little figure with gold paint.  I did about three coats (four with the darker animals).
:: During the last coat of paint, sprinkle glitter atop the animals.
:: Glue each figure to hard boiled egg with craft glue.  I held each animal in place for about 4 minutes for the glue to set.
:: Cut tissue paper with fringe scissors for grass.

Easy as pie.  This project is in association with the #12MonthsofMartha blogging team.
