Need a fun and easy DIY Easter craft?

Consider checking out these brilliant decoupage eggs using paper napkins! It’s such a creative and beautiful way to decorate Easter eggs. I went with a pretty floral pattern – perfect for spring (feel free to pick a pattern that inspires you)!


This project can be completed with real eggs, or consider grabbing some wooden craft eggs. I found some nice ones at Hobby Lobby.

Hip Tip: If using real eggs, use a pin to poke holes on both ends of eggs. Then blow air to expel the inside of the eggs.


DIY Decoupage Easter Eggs

Supplies Needed:

Instructions:

1.) Separate the bottom layer of your napkin and cut the patterned portion into smaller strips.

2.) Apply Mod Podge to egg using a paint brush. Place a strip of paper and use your fingers to flatten and apply paper to egg.


You can also, instead, cut out certain details of the napkin to decoupage on your egg for a different look!


3.) Keep pasting strips of paper around egg until covered. Brush on a layer or two of Mod Podge to seal your work. Honestly, after awhile you’ll be skipping the brush and just using your fingers! Go for it and have fun. 🙂


5.) Let dry completely.

Hip Tip:  I created an easy DIY drying rack using a small empty cardboard box and toothpicks! It worked great, and it is a perfect way to protect eggs from getting messed up when you’re dying, painting, or decoupaging them.


 

These decoupage Easter eggs turn out so pretty!

I love how bright the colors are, and they truly don’t have to be perfect. After decoupage dries, your eggs will look amazing!


I can’t wait to incorporate them into my Easter decor this year!

Put some in a decorative bowl, or include them on your Easter table as a terrific DIY craft idea.

  8. Crystal

    I am not a very crafty person, so could this work with plastic eggs?

    • Lina D

      Yes although you may get a different look with brightly colored eggs instead of white. I bet they’d still be pretty!

  9. Melanie

    I may need to try this idea this year instead of dye. Nothing worse than dye all over your hands. Lol

    • Chrisa

      I found some egg holders for when you are dying them at 5below. They kind of look like scissors at first glance, but they hold the eggs so you don’t have to use your fingers. Can’t wait to try them out!

      • Lina D

        Oh neat! Have fun 👍

    • Lina D

      Yes! These are fun ❤️

  11. Wen

    Okay, you’ve got me. Even a non-artist like me ought to be able to handle some of these lovely ideas. Our kids will be so impressed (& surprised, quite frankly)! 😉

    • Lina D

      Oh haha – have fun!

    Love the decoupage! I use patterned napkins all the time with Mod Podge. Christmas Tree Shop always has a great selection, especially seasonal. I buy plates and glassware at Dollar Tree to cover.
