Decoupage Easter Eggs

Spring is almost here, so I decided to decoupage Easter eggs with pretty napkins to celebrate. 

 

How to Decoupage Easter Eggs 

I get so giddy when I see spring’s first signs in nature that I have to start my Easter crafting.

Decoupaging eggs is so easy you can invite the kids to craft them with you.

*You can find more information about how to decoupage in this earlier post.

Preparing the Decoupage Design

To remove my designs from my napkins, I cut them out with scissors; however, you can also use a water brush to remove your design from a napkin.

After cutting out my design, I have to separate the napkin layers. I will be using only the top layer of the napkin.

Apply Mod Podge 

Since I used dyeable eggs that were bright white eggs, I could use them without painting them. I love it when I can skip a step!

Note: If you use colored plastic eggs, you can sand them and apply chalk paint before adding your designs. 

Using a paintbrush dipped in Mod Podge, I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge over the area where I wanted to attach my napkin designs.

Once I had my design applied, I brushed on a thin coat of Mod Podge.

I used a piece of plastic wrap to smooth out any wrinkles as my Mod Podge dried.

If you want to add diamond dust to your eggs, you can apply it to your wet designs.

While the Mod Podge is still wet sprinkle diamond dust over the egg

These eggs would be adorable on an Easter tree.
