Today I am showing you how to decoupage and decorate eggs for Easter. This fun project is easy to make and will last all year because I used faux eggs instead of hard-boiled eggs.

Follow the instructions below for inspiration.

Supplies:

  • Faux Easter Eggs
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam Brush
  • Floral Print Paper
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Begin by cutting the flowers out of the paper. Make sure to use decorative paper that is thin. Thick cardstock is harder to adhere to the eggs.

  • Next, use a foam brush to apply Mod Podge or some other decoupage medium on the back of one of the paper cut-outs.
  • Glue the paper on the egg.
  • Smooth out the edges with your finger or with the foam brush.

  • Continue gluing the paper cut-outs until you cover each egg. Let the glue dry for a couple of hours.
  • Once dry, you can add stickers and embellishments to the eggs.
