Do you realize that spring is just a few short weeks away? I am so ready for this new season! Have you begun decorating your home for spring? I have started to add little touches around my home…lighter fabrics, more greenery, and fresh flowers. Throughout this year, I have been adding more and more blue and white to my home decor. I thought I might add these classic, timeless colors into my spring decor too by making my own decoupaged Easter eggs. They were very easy and inexpensive to make, yet add a touch of elegance.

Have you ever decoupaged anything before? It is really easy and so much fun to do. My students at school love it too! One of my favorite decoupage projects were these decorative DIY file folder organizers. They’re so cute! Check them out and let me know what you think!

Supplies:

  • artificial Easter eggs (I purchased mine at Michael’s Crafts Store)
  • white chalk paint
  • paint brush
  • decorative napkins (I had picked mine up at Marshall’s.)
  • scissors
  • Modge Podge
  • parchment paper sheets

Directions:

  1.  If you’re using colored artificial Easter eggs, paint them first with white chalk paint. I like to have them dry on parchment paper.
  2. Take your napkins and separate the layers. You only want to use the very top layer.
  3. Cut out some of the designs from your napkins that you would like to use on your eggs.
  4.  Paint on a thin layer of Modge Podge on your egg. Then set a piece of the napkin on it.  Paint another thin layer of Modge Podge on top of the napkin. Repeat this process until the egg is decorated to your liking.
  5. Again, you can have these eggs dry on parchment paper so they won’t stick.
  6. Display and enjoy!

It’s ok if they’re not perfectly smooth.  I try to resist the urge to keep trying to smooth them, but found that using small napkin pieces seem to work best.

Once they’re dry, display and enjoy!  I love the pop of color that these decoupage Easter eggs add to this piece of milkglass! I also added my great grandfather’s vintage toolbox, filled with blue and white dishes, along with my DIY Faux Mercury Glass Votive Holders.

I hope that you give this spring craft project a try!  For more spring craft ideas, please check out all of the ideas from my blogging friends!

  1. Hi Lynne, I’ve always wanted to try decoupaging eggs and have all the supplies. Love your pretty blue and white display in your milk glass compote! Happy to be crafting with you again !

  2. I love decoupaging just about anything including eggs! I like that you can use this technique to match any decor or seasonal trend! Your decoupaged eggs look gorgeous!

  3. I love decoupaged Easter eggs! I have used the same napkins as you in the past to decoupage eggs and a ceramic Easter bunny. You did such a lovely job on your eggs, without the wrinkles that I always seem to have in mine. This is such a great way to decorate eggs. We have come such a long way from simple dyed eggs and these are so elegant!

  4. I think every house should have some blue and white decor. Your eggs looks so beautiful in that hobnail milk glass dish Lynne! Such a nice vintage touch!

  5. Your eggs look amazing. Love the blue. What pretty napkins you found to place on your eggs. Love it!

  6. Seeing these makes me want to try again– I’ve never succeeded at decoupaging eggs…. yet. I like the blue and white napkins!

  7. Lynn, I’ve decoupaged Christmas eggs, but always wanted to go back and do some just for Easter.
    The white dish is a perfect container for your pretty craft. Is it vintage?
    Take care,

  8. They turned out so pretty Lynne, I’ve got to try this, I just love to decoupage things! The eggs really look stunning in your milk glass compote!

  9. So pretty! I love that they aren’t real eggs so you can reuse them every year. Thanks for participating in the hop. I think they look really cool when they aren’t perfectly smooth. They almost look like fabric covered eggs.

  10. Great timing and a wonderful project. I love how they turned out and now I want to make some too. Thanks for sharing.

  11. How pretty, Lynne! I really love how they turned out! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  12. Your blue and white decoupaged eggs look so elegant, Lynne! I love the vintage vignette you created with your milk glass compote, mercury glass votive holder and the old toolbox with blue and white transferware plates. I’ve been adding more blue and white decor to my home lately, too. It’s so timeless! Pinned 🙂 It’s always fun to hop with you, my friend!
