Decoupage Easter Eggs Tutorial

Decoupage Easter Eggs TutorialDo you decorate for every holiday?  I usually pick a couple of my favorites {Easter, Christmas} and keep the rest of the year pretty neutral.  I love to decorate for Easter because it usually means that spring is just around the corner.

Mod Podge {or a mixture of white glue and water}
a brush
scrapbook paper

Begin by tearing up the paper and soaking it in a bit of water.  This makes it a bit more flexible.  Be sure to wipe off the excess moisture.  Tissue paper or paper napkins would work too and you could skip this step.

  Next coat the egg in Mod Podge, apply the paper and cover with Mod Podge.  Continue until the entire egg is covered.  I covered one side of the egg then set it in an egg carton to dry before covering the other side of the egg.
