How To Decoupage Easter Eggs

I made a beautiful decoupage egg! 

This started out as a hollow, 2-piece thrifted egg, made of some kind of plaster. The prior owner had applied some kind of a lace bib around the egg. Yeah, it was hideous! I thought about painting it first, but I'm glad I didn't!

I had decoupaged other projects before, so that's what I decided to do. I already had leftover supplies, so everything I needed was on hand.

What You Need

You'll need strips of paper or cloth, glue or Mod Podge and that's it! 

The Process

I used blue and white paper decorative napkins that were leftover from another project. They were an Amazon purchase. Here's the link:
They are two-ply, so I separated them and discarded the white lining. Then I tore enough strips to cover the entire egg. I purchased my napkins online, but you could use any napkins you have on hand. 

I separated the egg so that I could work on one half at a time. I applied a generous amount of Mod Podge to a small surface of the egg and began to wrap it with a strip of napkin. I repeated this step until both halves of the egg were covered. 


After putting the egg back together, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the outer surface. This will help to preserve the project. To finish,  I tied a white ribbon around the egg. 

That's it! Would you try a craft project like this?
