Happy Spring! Easter is super early this year so we have to get on those Easter DIY projects! The one I’m sharing today could almost be a thrift store makeover since I bought these supplies on one of my thrifting trips. But the wooden eggs are easy to find or order new also. Keep reading to see how I made my easy galvanized wooden Easter eggs.

Supplies for Galvanized Wooden Easter Eggs
- wooden eggs
- Rustoleum Hammered Silver spray paint
- spray shelter — Optional, but extremely helpful.
- spiked furniture caster cups – Another optional tool.
How to Make Galvanized Easter Eggs
I had no idea what those plastic spikey things were when I bought a bag of them at my local thrift store. But since then I’ve learned that they’re spiked furniture caster cups, used to prevent crushing and wearing of carpet pile, as well as protecting hard floors from scratches and dents. Today they’re going to hold my wooden eggs so they don’t roll away while I spray paint them.
I spray-painted them in my spray shelter so I won’t get paint all over my patio. They each got two light coats of hammered silver spray paint. I sprayed one side, let it dry, turned it, sprayed the other side, and repeated.
Finished Galvanized Easter Eggs
I love the result! When I posted a photo on Instagram I had friends actually think they were metal eggs!
These may or may not make it to Paris Flea Market…lol… (UPDATE: They didn’t! I’ve kept these and used them to decorate for 4 Easters!)
