04/17/14 How to Make Fancy Easter Eggs – Decoupage

How-make-make-Fancy-Easter-EggsEaster-EggsThat time when the girls were 2 and I made Eric and my parents stay up until 1 AM to decoupage Easter eggs because I wanted my girls to have a pretty, plastic-free, Easter egg hunt?

It was so worth it.

As I put Nola (now 7) to bed the other night, she started crying. Nola was sad that her pretty Easter egg collection had diminished over the years as other kids have joined us in our hunt and have taken the decoupaged eggs home.

“Please Mummy, please make me more pretty eggs.”

This crafty Mumma’s heart melted.

It is worth it to fill my girls’ lives with beauty and handmade loveliness. It really is.

Materials

Plastic Eggs

Rice

Metal Bells

Pretty fabric – cut into strips (or tissue paper)

Mod Podge

Glitter

Glue pen

 

To decoupage Easter eggs…

1. Fill the plastic eggs with a little bell or dried rice.

2. Close the egg and use the Mod Podge to cover the eggs in fabric.

3. Let dry

4. Use a glue pen to put a dab of glue on the fabric. Sprinkle a little glitter over the glue, wait for the glue to dry, and tap excess glitter off.

 

Hide in the garden for a beautiful Easter egg hunt, or include in an Easter basket with real grass.

    Love these eggs! Oh man, I”m so lazy about Easter but might have to muster some energy to make these, they are so cute & would even look good in my house. Plus, I’ve never used Mod Podge.
