Golden Egg Hunt Tablescape & A Natural Textured Egg DIY

Garden Golden Egg Hunt Inspiration  Easter egg hunts weren’t really a tradition in my family, but I know they can be quite fun having seen a few in college. So I wanted to recreate my own egg hunt with a playful centerpiece.IMG_1483

I hid eggs, big and small throughout, which makes looking at the centerpiece like an egg hunt itself. “The Golden Egg” beautifully displayed beneath glass, and a second placed within another centerpiece in the living room. Three plastic eggs, which I left untouched because I thought the peach-orange color would pop amongst pink roses, simply put into a white pitcher, I’ve been waiting to finally use. This garden egg hunt inspired centerpiece makes me smile, maybe it’s because nothing makes me happier than working with beautiful blooms such as these or because it really is like having a piece of Spring indoors.

If you’re anything like me, you save anything if it has the potential to become decor. I’ve been really into different textures, and wanted to see how this DIY would turn out on plastic instead, see below for the steps on creating your own eggs.

Natural Textured Eggs
You’ll Need

– Plastic Eggs

– White All-purpose craft paint

– Joint Compound {Home Depot has a good selection}

– Craft Paint in tan color

– Paint brushes {use an older brush for the joint compound}

– Craft paper

– Mod Podge, Loose Glitter, Glitter Paint, Black Paint {and anything else you’d like to decorate your eggs with}

Directions

Paint the eggs with two coats of the white craft paint, allowing to dry between coats. In a plastic bowl, mix the joint compound with water until it resembles greek yogurt. Stir in craft paint until the desired shade of color {it will dry slightly lighter}. Lay painted eggs onto craft paper, or in a bowl to prevent from rolling, and allow to dry completely before painting a second thick coat, dry completely {preferably overnight}.

To make a speckled looking egg, with a small paint brush create random spots in different shapes and directions. Use a toothpick to make spots trickle into thinner shapes. To make Golden Egg, brush a layer of mod podge, then place into a bowl filled with gold loose glitter, coat completely and allow to dry.
