Decoupage Your Easter Eggs

Ever wonder how you can change up your Easter decor? Well after reading our favorite blog, Honestly Yum, they gave us a great idea! Decoupage your Easter Eggs! 

For all you newbies out there: 

de·cou·page  

Noun
The decoration of the surface of an object with paper cut-outs.
What you need: 
  • ostritch, emu or chicken eggshells
  • color copies of vintage botanical prints or printed sheet paper
  • egg stand or candle holder
  • sharp scissors
  • matte Mod Podge
  • flat brush
What you do: 
  1. Start by printing your favorite designs on regular printer paper. We lean more towards the floral designs because they are easy to cut out, but why not throw a ton of prints in there to make it pop? 
  2. Take a pair of scissors & cut out the designs that you will be putting on your eggs. 
  3. Apply Mod Podge directly onto the egg, instead of on the cut-out. 
  4. Gently place the design onto the egg onto of the glue. Before the glue dries, make sure to smooth out any creases of bumps. 
  5. Allow each peice to dry for about 10 minutes, before appying the next piece. 
  6. Once all designs are on the egg, Mod Podge the whole egg with a top coat to seal the deal.
  7. Place on egg stands or candle stick holder to display for your family & friends!
