Need a fun and easy DIY Easter craft?

Brilliant decoupage eggs using Mod Podge and paper napkins will even have the Easter Bunny doing a double-take. It’s such a creative and beautiful way to decorate Easter eggs. I went with a pretty floral pattern that’s perfect for spring, but feel free to pick a pattern that inspires you!

There are so many fun and beautiful spring napkins you can use for this craft. From floral designs to striking solid colors, you’ll easily find the perfect style to create stunning designs that go beyond dyes and paint.

Hip Tips for making decoupage Easter eggs:

  • If using real eggs, use a pin to poke holes on both ends of the eggs. Then blow air to expel the inside of the eggs.
  • 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.
  • Tissue paper could work for this, too! You can use pastels, florals, or brights depending on your desired results. Just be careful with the application since tissue paper is thinner than napkins.

Supplies Needed

Directions

1

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

2

Apply Mod Podge to the egg using a paintbrush. Place a strip of paper and use your fingers to flatten and apply paper to the egg. You can also cut out certain details of the napkin to decoupage on your egg for a different design. I did this with some butterflies from the napkins I found!

3

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

4

Let dry completely and display for spring!

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! Put some of your decoupage Easter eggs in a decorative bowl, or include them on your Easter table as a terrific DIY craft idea. I can’t wait to incorporate them into my Easter decor this year!

I recommend displaying your Easter eggs using a decorative egg carton. The one I have is available from Crate and Barrel except mine is in blue, but here’s a similar one on Etsy. Either way, getting one that’ll match your eggs makes for a solid spring decor piece!
