Decoupage Egg Tutorial

Hi y’all! I am so excited to share this tutorial with you today. We are all so ready for spring!
It’s snowing as I type this. Yay.
Decoupage Egg TutorialIn my quest for an early spring I went looking for brown speckled eggs to fill my apothecary jar. And I couldn’t find a thing. Zero. Zilch. Nada. So I made my own!
You will need:
Scrapbook paper {torn into small pieces}
egg forms {I used both styrofoam and plastic}
modge podge
paintbrush
egg carton
Decoupage Egg TutorialStart by soaking your patterned paper in water to give it more flexibility. You could use tissue paper and skip this step.

As I was covering the eggs I set them in this carton to dry. I used a heat gun {for embossing} to help them dry a little quicker. This worked well for the plastic eggs but tended to melt the styrofoam.
I love how these turned out. Even better than my hoped for brown speckled eggs I think.
Thanks for reading. I love having you here!

    Hi – saw you on today’s creative blog. This is a really cute idea! And so easy! I want to do something spring-y but also wanted it to be easy – this is perfect. Thanks!

    Love these! If you did this with tissue, you could paint them blue (or tan or white) then glaze them with a bit of burnt umber. And do them with music paper, or french text or even just book pages. Look, you’ve got my brain just clicking over! Thanks!
