How to Make Super Easy Faux Gilded Easter Eggs

I love the sparkle.  I mean, that’s pretty obvious, right? Glitter, bling, metallics…oh yeah…As long as it has little glitz or glam, I’m digging it.  It still has to be sophisticated, though.  Those old bedazzled jean jackets?  I’m not really digging those. Gold leaf?  That makes my heart sing. When I saw these gilded Easter eggs on Pinterest, I knew I had to create my own version.  In my own way, of course.
