I posted here about some DIY Ombre Easter Eggs I made. After making entirely too many of them, I decided to try something different with about half of them. Using simple materials I had on hand, I created these paper mache type eggs.
Here is what you will need:
- Patterned paper napkins of your choice.
- Sponge or paint brush
- Mode Podge
STEP 1: Separate the napkin layers. Keep the top patterned layer and discard the remainder. Cut shapes from the top layer.
STEP 2: Brush Mod Podge onto the egg then apply a cutout from the napkin. After letting it dry, paint another layer of Mod Podge on top to seal. I found you really had to take your time and use your fingers to smooth out the paper or else you would end up with a wrinkled effect.
There are so many beautiful napkin patterns out there these days, so the possibilities are endless. It literally took me about 10 minutes to create these beauties!
What about you? How do you decorate your eggs? Do you go for a PAAS kit or do you try something more untraditional?
Stay tuned . . . I may have another decorating idea coming soon. I just can’t get enough!
