Faberge eggs were created by the house of Faberge in St. Petersburg Imperial Russia, possibly as many as 69 were created of which 57 survive today. Faberge made them for Easter gifts for the tsar’s wives. They were so beautiful and highly sought after and I had always had a fascination with them since I was a child. I was so glad to see this excellent video on Youtube explaining how to make a replica of one of these eggs, I gathered my materials together and couldn’t wait to get started. I got all my supplies from Michael’s Craft Store and used my 40% off coupons, so this project was super affordable as well. You are not going to believe how easy this project is, I literally did it in two steps and it was so fun. The best part about it is that you end up with a very classy looking elegant egg that looks beautiful with your home decor.

Materials:

  • Craft Egg (from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s)
  • Antique Gold Craft Paint (Michael’s or Hobby Lobby)
  • Paper Studio Gem brand Stickers (Michael’s or Hobby Lobby)

Directions:

First, paint your egg gold, I use a regular bristle brush, but you can also use a foam brush, it will work fine.
