How To Create Easy Decoupage Easter Eggs
Easter is right around the corner and decorating Easter eggs is a favorite at my home. Decoupaging these Easter eggs a few years ago was so easy and fun. Today I want to share with you How To Create Easy Decoupage Easter Eggs.
It feels like I just posted my Valentine’s cake and now It’s almost time to celebrate Easter! Actually it’s a pretty big celebration around here!
One way we celebrate is to create pretty Easter eggs! Even though my kids are adults we still like to get together to do eggs! This year may be a little different with the price of eggs, lol! But it’s okay we will make do with some easy foam decoupage Easter eggs!
These pretty decoupage Easter eggs are from a few years ago but I thought this post was worth a share again. I will be making my Easter eggs almost the same way this year accept they will hang on the Easter tree.
Check back for all my Easter post!
I created Easter eggs by myself this year, well not totally by myself, the dog’s Mario and Scout were here. They seemed interested in what I was doing. I was at the kitchen counter and they hung out laying at my feet until I finished the eggs. So maybe they were interested in watching me create these easy decoupage Easter eggs!
I decoupaged Easter eggs with foam eggs. Have you ever decoupaged foam eggs before? It really is easy, and so fun! I love the look, and you can keep the eggs year after year! Also you can use paper, napkins, newspaper with so many creative and different materials to use!
I have a few little secrets to help make the perfect decoupage eggs!
1: Use smaller pieces of the paper you choose to use.
2: Add a good amount of the decoupage glue to the egg as you are applying your napkin or paper on to the egg.
3: If using foam eggs you can use toothpicks inserted at the bottom of the egg so you can hold the egg as you decorate it.
4: The paper you choose use a thinner paper, it works best.
I tried to use a few different items to help with the egg drying process. Canning lids helped because you’re able to set the egg with toothpick on the rim of the lid and it elevates the egg some.
You can do so many Easter eggs with a little bit of material. When using napkins make sure you pull the napkin ply apart. Use only the thinnest of paper when making decoupage eggs.
I chose two different patterns of napkins to create my decoupage Easter eggs.
I’m really loving how the blue napkin looks on the eggs! It’s such a pretty pattern!
The pink napkin pattern as you can see did wrinkled some, but I just added a little more of the decoupage glue and it takes it away.
These little eggs are also a great gift to give!
Look at how pretty they turned out!
These eggs were so easy peas’ to make!
Firstly: A few steps to follow to make decoupage eggs…
1: Set up your work area, the decoupage glue can get messy so you’ll want to put wax paper or paper down to protect any surfaces.
2: Items you may want to use for drying. I used canning lids, depending on the size of your eggs you could use a jar, glass or a mini muffin pan. Also, a cardboard box with toothpicks sticking up will also hold the egg.
3: Toothpicks work great to hold Polystyrene foam eggs while you’re adding the paper and decoupage to the egg. Insert the toothpick at the bottom of the egg pushing it in halfway.
Items you’ll need to create these easy decoupage Easter eggs:
