Materials Needed:
– Gold Leaf Metal (I purchased these at Hobby Lobby for $7.99 minus a 40% Coupon)
– Eggs (Boiled or Empty Shell)
– Food Coloring
– A Cup of water
– 1 Teaspoon of Vinegar
– School Glue

Dye your egg in your color of choice for no more than 5 minutes depending on how dark you want them.

Add a thin layer of glue all around the egg. Then carefully, take one sheet of gold leaf and wrap around the egg.

Remove gold leaf excess with your fingertips to smooth out surface, leaving some cracks open.DSC_0863PINit

And there you go, a perfect golden egg! Perfect to decorate a centerpiece or mantel.
