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!
Golden Animal Easter Eggs DIY
Safari Luck Mini Farm Fun Pack
Safari Good Luck Mini Garden Pack
Hard Boiled Eggs
Martha Stewart Gold paint
Martha Stewart Gold glitter
Martha Stewart fringe scissors
:: 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.

I’m so sorry to hear about your father. My thoughts are with you and your family, Anne.
These egg decorations are delightful! Last year, I used your egg crochet cover patterns and they
turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing another holiday craft project!
Lee Ann, You’re so kind to leave a comment about my family (thank you). Thanks also for your egg appreciation. I’m thrilled you made the egg crochet covers, too. Would love to see them! Tag a photo of them on Instagram with #myflaxandtwine and I may feature them on my Instagram profile. . . . anne
Lee Ann Howlett says
Oh dear, Anne, I didn’t mean to make it sound like I made a dozen of these. 😛 I actually made three but didn’t think to photograph them. However, I did re-use one of the crochet covers on a river rock. The pick of the rock is here: http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l196/lhowlett/IMG_2338_zpsqwysqi0a.jpg?t=1428636159
Not as pretty as an egg but, with a little adjusting, it fit really well. Cheers! Lee Ann
Looks beautiful – Love that you recycled them. Thanks so much for sharing with me!

Thank you for such inspiration. Hugs
