So last week when I was trying to think of another DIY to add to our Kid’s Spring Style and Geo Floral Easter Party, DIY gold foil Easter eggs came to mind. First though, those will be super simple. Reality, gold foil is a pain to work with. Just wanted to get that out there, you know if you are having those, this is going to be easy thoughts. Also I am sure that I am not the first person to write this post…. and that is another mistake I might add… why did I not google how to do it by someone else? I tried MULTIPLE ways to get the foil to stick and then after like the fifth try, voila! It worked!

I made these eggs specifically for the little DIY Baby Bird Nests that I made a few days before. I thought they would be perfect inside the nests scattered amongst the table. Well, my mom brain forget the nests at home the day of the shoot, but they still looked great scattered within the floral table runner created by Sequel Events.

DIY Gold Foil Easter Eggs

Supplies

  • Hard boiled Eggs (or faux eggs)
  • Gold Foil (mine is from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon, whoop! If you don’t already know this they always have coupons online to save $$)
  • Paint Brush
  • Liquid Clear/White Glue

Directions

  1. Use your paint brush to paint on glue to your eggs. Cover the areas that you want the gold foil to stick to.
  2. Roll the glued on areas of the egg directly onto the gold foil. This will have large pieces and smaller pieces on your egg.
  3. Once the amount of gold foil that you want is on your egg, use your paint brush to manipulate the foil.
  4. You can softly stroke more glue on top of the foil very gently if you want the gold to stay in larger pieces. If you prefer the gold foil to be broken up into smaller pieces poke the foil with the end of your brush to break it apart. More glue will have the foil move around easier.
  5. To fill in spots that didn’t collect foil dab your paintbrush onto the gold foil sheet to collect small pieces to paste on.
  6. Let dry on a drying rack (not a hand towel, trust me on this one).

  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀

  • #AD Our TV is usually set up in our garage's man cave but during the winter months it makes its way into the living room. We love having cozy family movie nights and enjoying some Orville Redenbacher Extra Buttery popcorn. It's butter-ly delicious! Bonus: it's made with no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. What's your favourite family movie right now? @orvillecanada #originalpopcorn #OrvilleCanada Photo: @juliechristinephotography
