Decoupage Easter Eggsposted by Jennifer
For those of you that don’t know her, I have a VERY crafty daughter. All Selah has wanted to do this week is decorate eggs, decorate eggs, decorate eggs. So we got some of her toy kitchen eggs and some decorator napkins and went to town… decoupage easter eggs. It is super easy and Selah and I had so much fun together. Let me warn you. It’s messy, but so easy!
Here’s whatcha need:
– Plastic white or light eggs
– Decortive napkins
– Mod Podge
– Paint Brush
Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts. YES! My quilter Mom calls it fussy cut. Pick the pattern you want on the egg and cut them out.
The end result looks something like this:
Then just grab an egg, dip your brush in the mod podge and start gluing.
Then layer the paper cut outs:
As you lay the cut outs on the egg, brush another layer of mod podge on top of the paper to seal and then let then dry! Easy Squeezy!
Be super careful not to let your hands get too sticky while handling the egg. The napkin will pull away from the egg. Yes, I learned that the hard way.
Selah had so much fun and she could have done it all day. Here is the finished product.
Easter is such a special holiday to our family. Everywhere I look, signs of new life remind me of our Living God, His sacrifice for us, and His resurrection. I hope you enjoy your Easter weekend, and though Easter isn’t really about Easter bunnies and eggs, may you take the time to soak up some sweet family time together and celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. As Dolly Parton’s song says, “He’s alive and I’m forgiven. Heavens gates are open wide!” I’m humbled and grateful.
Happy Easter Weekend, everyone!
