Here we go for a quick and easy Easter craft project, I’ve got just the thing. These DIY decoupage Easter eggs are so nice and such a nice idea for decorating your home for Easter!
These beauties require few supplies and can serve as a fun activity for the whole family, especially for kids.
DECOUPAGE EASTER EGGS
paper maché eggs (if you don’t have time to make on your own, you can buy them ready at your craft supply store or on Amazon – scrapbooking paper – mod podge (vinilic glue will work as well) – paintbrushes or découpage sponge
Start by tearing your scrapbook paper into strips of various sizes (do it randomly, without taking too much care).
You’ll want to create pieces that are small enough to mold to the egg’s contours but large enough to display your decoupage pattern.
Apply the mod podge (or vinylic glue mixed with very little water) on your egg and immediately stick the pieces of paper (i suggest to do small pieces at a time so that the glue doesn’t dry out).
it could be helpful to place decoupage egg on an open mason jar while working.
Be sure to overlap your pieces well, but you can always fill in any gaps after your first layer dries.
After you’ve covered 2/3 of the egg, wait 10-20 minutes for the Mod Podge to dry.
Once it’s dry, turn it around and finish the missing part.
The nice thing about this project is that you can have fun in looking for the paper to apply, it could be napkins, gift wrapping paper etc. The only suggestion is that, especially at the beginning, it is easier to use very light paper (such as napkins) because it sticks very easily.
Your découpage eggs are ready to be placed on a tray or wherever you like in your home.
