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.

Decorating Easter eggs is easy using napkins to decoupage pretty flowers, etc.
Decoupage Easter Egg Supplies
- Paper napkins, tissue paper, wrapping paper, or scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge (this is the one I used)
- Eggs (plastic Easter eggs, real eggs, or wooden eggs)
- Plastic wrap
- Water brush pen (optional)
- Diamond dust (optional)
** I recommend you watch this how-to decoupage eggs video before you begin (the part about the eggs is after the basket).
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.
These eggs would be adorable on an Easter tree.
These decorated eggs are so cute in these paper baskets.
