diy metallic easter eggs

Easter is just around the corner, and I’m so excited to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ with friends and family! Each year for the past several years, my family will get together after church for a wonderful meal and a mini Easter egg hunt for my nephews. It began when they were young and so adorable wobbling around the backyard searching for obviously “hidden” eggs. As they’ve gotten older, the hiding places have gotten more inventive, and we’ve replaced candy with money, so the hunt gets pretty intense. This year we might have an adorable edition to the egg hunt with our dear friends and their one-year old daughter joining us for Easter. I’m sure we’ll get some great photos.

As I’ve been diy-ing in prep for this Easter, my first project was these DIY Metallic Easter Eggs. They were a breeze to make and look super chic.

All I needed for this simple and super inexpensive (just $2!!) Easter-y project was a package of styrofoam eggs and a box of metal thumbtacks – both from the Dollar Tree!

Begin by pushing a thumbtack into the middle of one end of the egg and then just add thumbtacks overlapping them slightly around the initial thumbtack so that it looks like a flower. Continue adding rows of overlapping thumbtacks all the way to the other end of the egg until it’s completely covered.

And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! | Luke 24:4-6

  2. So pretty and so inexpensive. You must have much better stuff at your $tree, we have two of them but have never seen styro foam eggs, doggone it anyway. Maybe I should go look again do you think? I can’t get enough of that store, so much goodness there and can come out without having to spend the mtg. money or grocery money. So glad you shared this great project.

    1. Thank you! I think you should go back and see if they have any styrofoam eggs! If not there, then I know Joann or Hobby Lobby have them… just not as inexpensive. :) Happy creating!
