You will need:

  • - Aluminum foil
  • - Craft paint brush
  • - Craft glue
  • - Faux foam eggs
  • - Sponge
  • - Acrylic paint (any color)
  1. Start by ripping your aluminum foil into 1- to 3-inch pieces. Using your paint brush, paint a thin layer of craft glue all the way to the edge on the dull side of a piece of foil.
  2. Stick the aluminum foil piece onto a foam egg and smooth it out with your hands, then use the brush handle to smooth out the wrinkles and help the foil become completely sealed to the surface of the egg. If it squeezes out glue on the edges, wipe off any excess with your sponge.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the surface of your egg is completely covered with the foil. Little gaps between the edges of the foil are okay because the paint will fill in the gaps.
  4. To apply the color, dip a damp sponge in the acrylic paint and apply it all over the foil-covered egg. (You can hold the egg with a fork or a skewer if you want to avoid getting paint on your hands.) Then use the clean side of the sponge and wipe off the excess paint to reveal more of the shiny aluminum foil. The paint will fill the cracks and crevices, giving it an antique look. Let the eggs dry for about 20 minutes before displaying them.
