This 12-inch Better Homes and Garden planter is so beautiful and is such nice quality! So far I have used it as a fruit bowl and now it’s a spring and Easter centerpiece!  To create this look I just filled it will some faux moss and then added a ceramic bunny and lastly my DIY decoupage Easter eggs.

DIY Decoupage Easter Eggs




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


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.


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. 😄

Decoupage Easter Eggs made with paper napkins as a DIY Easer decor project

Hip tips for making decoupage Easter eggs:

  • This DIY project can be completed with real eggs, or consider grabbing some wooden craft eggs from Amazon.
  • 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 for my decoupage Easter eggs 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, patterns, or brights depending on your desired results. Just be careful with the application since tissue paper is thinner than napkins.

Easy decoupage ideas are my favorite, and this one is a must-try! 

I love how bright the colors are on these paper Easter eggs, and they truly don’t have to be perfect. After the Mod Podge 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.

    Are they hard to crack open after all that glue?

  2. Ms. Frizzle

    Haha, nevermind they’re not real eggs..doh!

    These are amazing. I have a bunch that I got in East Germany (think they are Russian) when the wall was still up and we could go over there and go shopping. Kind of like the Russian Dolls that stack in each other (got those too). They last a long time.

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh how fun, Pat! So nice that you still have them and they have held up so well! Thanks for sharing! 🤗 😍

    Lina you are so creative! Love your ideas and style!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay thank you so much Gigi! That totally made my day <3

    could this be done on plastic eggs?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      That may work! You might try using lighter colors or white plastic eggs versus neon colored ones, in case you’d see the color under the pattern of the napkin. 🤗 Happy crafting!
