Easter is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about how to decorate your home for this festive occasion. If you’re looking for a fun and unique centerpiece idea, why not try making your own with rose gold leaf Easter eggs wrapped with copper wire? Not only is it a beautiful addition to your décor, but it’s also a fun activity that allows you to create something that is unique to you.
Welcome to our monthly Handcrafted Society collaboration!
Where we share we each are challenged with a project ie. Hot Pink Easter eggs! Of course with an Amy twist!
I love how the rose leaf turned out and the copper wire just made these so special. I hope you will enjoy all of my friends post as well, linked at the bottom of this post! Be sure to leave a comment!

Supplies For Easter Eggs
- Paper mache eggs (in any size you prefer)
- Rose gold leaf
- Gilding size
- Copper wire (thin and plyable)
- 8 Inch Grapevine Coil
- Moss Bunny
Easter Eggs Centerpiece
- Paint your paper mache eggs
I used the color plum from modern masters, which is a metallic paint. Allow that to dry fully.
- Apply leaf adhesive
Apply an even layer of leaf adhesive called gilding size and allow the it to “come to tack” or get sticky. Depending on the weather this could take 20-45 minutes.
- Gently lay your leaf
Gently lay your rose red metal leaf over the sticky adhesive.
- Press it down
Gently use a chip brush to lay the leaf down into the adhesive and brush it on. You will see it meld with the size and become seamless.
- Wrap the copper wire
Next, it’s time to wrap the eggs with copper wire. Cut a length of wire that’s long enough to wrap around the egg a few times, leaving a little extra wire at the ends to create a curly effect. Starting at the bottom of the egg, wrap the wire around the egg, twisting it slightly as you go to create a spiral effect. Continue wrapping the wire up the egg.
- Assemble the Easter Centerpiece
Once you’ve wrapped all of the eggs, it’s time to assemble the centerpiece. . Arrange the wrapped eggs in the nest, varying the heights and angles for a more interesting look. Use a glue gun to secure the eggs in place if needed.
Finally, if you want to add a little extra flair to your centerpiece, you can tie a ribbon around a bunny or add other embellishments like small flowers or greenery.
Not only is this centerpiece beautiful, but it’s also a fun and creative project that allows you to make something that is uniquely yours. It’s a great way to add a personal touch to your Easter décor and impress your guests with your crafting skills. So why not give it a try and see how much fun it can be to create something that is truly one-of-a-kind!
