DIY gorgeous floral Easter Eggs

DIY gorgeous floral Easter eggs

Easter is a little less than 2 weeks away and it’s time to break out the Easter Eggs! This year I decided to do something a little different with our eggs, giving it a more upscale feel. Using faux flowers from The Dollar Store and spring themed napkins, I’m going to show you how to easily make these DIY gorgeous floral Easter eggs.

DIY gorgeous floral Easter eggs

 

You will need:

  • Eggs (You can use real eggs or wooden craft eggs I got from Amazon.)
  • Faux flowers (I got a couple stems from The Dollar Store)
  • Paper napkins (choose some fun spring ones)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or Modge Podge
  • Hot glue gun
  • Small paint brush

Directions:

Step 1: I chose to keep my eggs the natural white but if you wanted them to be colored you could paint them or dye them.

Step 2: Open your napkin all the way so it is a single layer. Using your scissors, cut out the pieces that you want to use to put on your egg, trimming as close to the object as possible.

Step 3: Take your flowers and clip the flowers off the stem, clipping as close as you can to the base of the flower.

Step 4: Using some glue and your paint brush, dab some glue on the egg where you want your napkin pieces to go and press  the napkin pieces firmly onto the egg. There may be some slight creasing, so try to smooth it out as you go.  If any of the edges start to come up, you can also dab some clear glue or modge podge over the top.

Step 5: I found that a hot glue gun worked best for the flowers. Put some hot glue on the backside of your flower and press onto your egg.

That’s it!!! I love how intricate and gorgeous these look! And if you use the wooden eggs, you can enjoy them for many more years to come.

 

If you do make these, share a photo on Instagram and tag me @ourtiny_nest
