What is decoupage?

Decoupage is the “art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf, and other decorative elements.”

In the past, I made these decoupage Easter eggs with napkins and some faux flowers I got from the Dollar Store.

I was feeling a little creative over the weekend and wanted to do something a little different with these beautiful chinoserie napkins I got. Scroll down to see how they came out!

How to make DIY decoupage Easter Eggs

Start by taking your napkins and ripping them in smaller pieces. Depending on the type of napkins you have, they may be 2 ply or 3 ply. You will just want to use the top layer.

When ripping the pieces of paper, you will want some smaller pieces and some larger pieces to form to your egg.

Next dip your paint brush in the Mod Podge and apply some on the egg. There’s really no right or wrong, my tip is just to apply a generous amount of glue underneath and over the paper.

Next apply a piece of paper on top of the glue, using your finger to carefully smooth out any wrinkles. Then apply a layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper, continuing to smooth out the napkin. Be gentle so as not to rip the paper.

Continue your way around the egg being sure to overlap as you go and then fill in any spaces.

Allow the egg to dry completely.

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.

You will need:

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.
