Decoupaged Easter Eggs

We have been having the best weather down here in Virginia lately. This week we’re getting a touch of spring with temperatures near 70!

I’m so glad because I’m over the freezing cold long winter days. Not to mention the ice storms we’ve had this year. Yuck!

So to get more in the spirit of Spring, I’ve been working on spring and Easter crafts.

And today I’m going to show you how I made these cute decoupaged Easter eggs out of plastic eggs from Dollar Tree!

What you need:

materials needed for decoupaged Easter eggs

What you do:

Step 1

I chose to use all yellow plastic eggs for this project. You can choose any color you want. To me, yellow is such a happy spring color.

The decorative napkins usually have layers to them. Tear the layers apart so that you only have the top layer to work with.

Rip the top layer of the napkin into small pieces. You want them small enough to fit onto the plastic eggs.

step 1 - tear napkins into pieces

Step 2

Use the paintbrush to add a layer of Mod Podge to the plastic egg. (I usually use a sponge brush to do this, but I didn’t have any on hand this time.)

step 2 - put mod podge onto eggs

Step 3

Now that you have Mod Podge on the plastic egg, start adding the napkin strips.

They don’t have to be in any order, just put them on the plastic egg anyway that makes sense to you.

After you’ve covered the plastic egg with the napkin strips, set it aside and let it dry completely.

step 3 - add napkin

Step 4

Once the Mod Podge-covered plastic egg is completely dry, add another layer of Mod Podge to the entire egg.

Set it aside and allow it to completely dry.

step 4 - add another layer of Mod Podge

Now repeat the steps above to make as many decoupaged Easter eggs as you want!

Then when they’re all dry, decorate with them.

I made three decoupaged Easter eggs and placed them on top of the candle holder I made last year. I added a handful of moss (also from Dollar Tree) and just laid the eggs on top.

The decoupaged eggs look so cute paired with my no-sew fabric bunny and paper bag carrots!

    1. Yes it is! πŸ˜€

  22. Yes I have but I used origami paper. Great post Michelle!

    1. Using origami paper is a good idea! I never thought to use that. Thank you!

  23. These are so cute! I love that you don’t have the mess of boiling and dying because that little project can get out of hand quickly! πŸ˜€ I’ve never made decoupaged eggs before but you’ve actually got me wanting to try it! By the way, I adore how you arranged these eggs with the carrots and the no sew rabbit. It’s perfect, especially against your beautiful kitchen colors!

    I still love those napkins too. The design is pretty darn neat. Makes them stand out in a unique kind of way. I love it! You’ve created another winner, my friend! β™₯ BIG hugs coming your way.

    P.S. I wish that nice weather would come back, ha ha! They’re calling for snow near me tomorrow. Oh well. At least it’s not brutal heat!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I’ve made quite a few messes with dying eggs in the past. LOL! I hope you get to make some soon. They’re so easy! πŸ™‚

      I know what you mean about the weather. Yesterday we had thunderstorms and tornado threats to the south of us. And today it’s freezing again with possible snow flurries! What?!? I hope the snow misses you! πŸ˜€

  24. These are so cute Michelle! I love the napkins you chose and how you tore the paper to make them easier to work with too. They’re beautiful! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Thank you so much! I think those are my favorite napkins to craft with right now. πŸ™‚
