Decoupaged Easter Eggs

Hi! I’m Emily from 52 Mantels, a blog about all things home, including weekly mantel makeovers, easy DIY projects, seasonal crafts and simple recipes!  Today I’m going to show you a fun way to Decorate Easter Eggs :: Decoupaged Easter Eggs.

I love decorating Easter eggs because the possibilities are endless! With these eggs, I decided to decoupage a design on them using pretty, Springy napkins I picked up at Tom Thumb (of all places!). The process is simple. I started with blown-out eggs because if I’m going to decorate eggs, I want to enjoy them all all season! There are so many great tutorials on how to blow-out eggs, I’ll skip right to the dying and decorating!
I used food color for my dye, but if you’re involving the kids in this project, you might want to use a dye that doesn’t stain like food color. I wanted them to be a pale turquoise, so I used sky blue with a touch of yellow.  One dip rendered them a bit darker than I’d intended, but I didn’t mind!  After the eggs were dyed and dried, I used mod podge to decoupage a design on them. I Simply cut my desired design from a napkin and separated the layers so that I decoupaged a single layer only. After they were dried, I used them to create pretty, seasonal vignettes around my house! I think these would be great on a tablescape, perhaps even used as place-card holders! And, because they won’t spoil, I can decorate with them until Easter! Lots of bang for very little money and not a lot of time….my kind of project!
It’s been so fun being here at It’s Overflowing sharing this simple and fun Easter egg project with you! Come visit me sometime at 52 Mantels, where you might find inspiration for parties, recipes, mantel makeovers….and, so much more!
