These fun Easter eggs made with decoupage napkins are a fun and easy Easter craft for any age! All are you need are some eggs, napkins, and Mod Podge for beautifully decorated Easter eggs with your own custom design!
Separate the printed front layer from the back layer of the napkins.
2-ply or 3-ply napkins
Using sharp scissors, cut out individual elements from your napkin that you’ll want to put onto your eggs.
Use the foam paint brush to add some of the Mod Podge on the egg.
Mod Podge, craft eggs
Place a piece of the napkin that you cut up over top of the Mod Podge. If you’re going to add other pieces of the design that won’t overlap the first, you can add those on now as well. Just carefully add pieces next to each other and smooth them out on top of the egg.
Use a small wet paint brush (dipped in water) to smooth out the edges of the napkin so that it’s easier to add additional napkin pieces on top.
Let the first layer of decoupage napkins dry on top of the egg for another 20 minutes then continue with a second layer if desired. Continue carefully adding additional pieces of napkin over the Mod Podge, smoothing them out nicely, until you get the design you want.
Finish the rest of your eggs and set them up to allow them to dry completely before touching them. You can do this by laying them on a piece of wax paper or placing them in an empty egg carton to dry.
Wax or kraft paper
Use craft eggs for the cleanest results – clean because they won’t crack if you press a little too hard! You can use hard boiled or hollowed out eggs as well, just be very careful with those because obviously they crack! Craft eggs are also great because you can keep them as Easter decorations for years to come!Cut smaller pieces and more images compared to larger ones. Larger ones tend to crease more when you paint them on.Make sure the Mod Podge is dry before adding on another layer. Otherwise, you’ll just end up with tons of Mod Podge and the designs will slide around as you try to add additional ones on top. The Mod Podge serves as a glue and you want that glue to be dry.Hot glue some ribbons or loops to the eggs and hang them on a fun Easter tree.
