How to make simple decoupage Easter eggs

Updated: Apr 12


Decorating Easter eggs has always been a timeless tradition! Growing up we would dye the eggs then add stickers or glitter for an extra embellishment. Beyond the religious symbolism of dying eggs, it also becomes a meaningful family moment to spend together while tapping into creative interpretation. The beauty of decorating eggs is there are so many different ways to dress them up, including the elegant presentation of decoupaged eggs. It's very simple to do and only requires a few craft materials. The best part? Personalizing them by picking your favorite patterns, even using paper cocktail napkins you already have at home.

Materials

- White faux eggs

- Cocktail napkins

- Mod Podge

- Thin ribbon

- Hot glue gun

- Scissors


Directions:

1. First, cut small shapes of your paper cocktail napkins and set aside. Take one faux egg and paint a layer of Mod Podge on to the egg. Place the paper cocktail napkin piece on the egg and then paint another layer of Mod Podge over the paper piece. Repeat, overlapping the napkin pieces until the whole egg is covered in paper cocktail napkin pieces.


2. Once all your eggs are decoupaged, cut a strip of ribbon to form a loop on top of the egg for hanging, and add a drop of hot glue to secure. For an even more formal look, tie a bow with extra ribbon and adhere to the top of the egg underneath the loop.
