    Easter’s almost here! Almost time for that time-honored tradition of dyeing eggs with rainbow hues. What if you want to kick it up a notch this year? With just a few simple craft materials and a dash of creative inspiration, your humble Easter eggs can become Pinterest-worthy projects.

    The Golden Egg

    Legend has it there’s a goose who lays golden eggs. Include a gilded egg (or gold leaf egg) in your hunt—first person to find it wins a special prize. Older kids will go wild for a crisp $10 bill, while the younger ones would love a special small toy.

    Hand-painted Easter eggs in metallic tones elevate the humble oeuvre to art worthy of the Louvre. Display around your home for beautiful accents (use faux eggs if you plan to leave the eggs unrefrigerated) or arrange in a simple glass dish for your Easter centerpiece.
