Etsy shop love - Valek Rolling Pins

Etsy has so many great things to offer. With ‘Etsy shop love’ I want to show you some of my favorite Etsy shops. Every Saturday you will find a new shop that’s getting featured. Today it’s ‘Valek Rolling Pins’.

I love to bake cakes, bread, cupcakes and of course cookies. So when I saw these amazing patterned rolling pins from Valek Rolling Pins I thought they were absolutely amazing! How cool is it to bake cookies with a nice pattern or even with your name on it? I would absolutely love ‘Made By Wilma’ cookies. It makes it extra special to give them away as a gift. Nobody will argue that they are really made by you! Amazing!

What would you want on your  cookies? XO Wilma

It’s no secret that I absolutely love gold leaf. It’s pretty and makes everything look better! That’s why I had to try some gold leaf on my Easter eggs. I made a simple design on white eggs to really make the gold leaf pop. I love how they turned out! Simple and sophisticated.

How to make DIY gold leaf Easter eggs

1. Make sure your eggs and your work surface are clean. You don’t want anything else than gold leaf sticking to your Easter eggs!

2. Put the glue on your eggs where you want the gold leaf to go. You can make any pattern you like. Like dots, stripes or maybe even chevron. The glue has to dry for a while. For how long depends on your glue, so make sure you read the instructions!

3. It’s time to apply the gold leaf. I found it was the easiest to apply the gold leaf directly from the paper. It’s very delicate and will break as soon as you touch it. So open you booklet or paper and put the gold leaf on your egg. Remove the paper and the gold leaf will be stuck on your egg. You can use a brush and your fingers to create a smooth surface. It doesn’t have to completely perfect! I think that’s the charm of gold leaf!

4. Brush away all the excess gold leaf and leave it to dry.

Your DIY gold leaf Easter eggs are ready for Easter! XO Wilma

Doodle Easter egg DIY Project

How to make doodle Easter eggs

Doodling really isn’t hard to do, even if you are not a great drawer. Here are a few tips to create great looking doodle Easter eggs:

1. Choose two or three basic shapes. As you can see my egg is mainly filled with the image of one flower and a leaf repeated all over the egg. If you choose just a few basic shapes your design will get a consistent look.

2. Fill up the egg enthirely with the basic shapes. Don’t worry about holes just yet.

3. Now tackle the holes in your design. Again; just choose one or two ways to fill the openings. I doodled swirls and dots. In the end your egg will have just 4 or 5 different shapes drawn on it. This gives a consistent but really pretty look!

Now go grab an egg and start doodling! XO Wilma
