I was always a big fan of Easter.
This year, I spent the day making these cute paper covered Easter egg decorations.
They’re easy to make too! Here’s how you do it:
1. Start with your supplies:
-Plastic Easter Eggs
-Mod Podge (I used Gloss-Lustre, but the Matte works great too!)
-Small foam brush to apply Mod Podge
-A book or newspaper (I hope it’s not sacrilegious to use pages from The Notebook)
-Embellishments (ribbon, buttons, mini rosettes, etc.)
-Glitter – optional, but EVERYTHING needs a little glitter (I used Martha Stewart’s white gold glitter)
2. Coat plastic egg with Mod Podge and begin to apply newspaper (or pages from The Notebook like me), coating thoroughly. Cover egg entirely, and coat with another layer of Mod Podge to keep smooth edges.
When you’re finished, they should look like this:
3. From here, it’s all up to your personal taste. I embellished mine a few different ways:
For glitter, coat the plastic egg with one more (light) layer of Mod Podge, and then lightly sprinkle glitter over egg.
Almost every time I read the newspaper, I collect the headlines and organize the letters into tubs like this:
If you do this, it’s really easy to look through your little letter tubs and put together cute Easter words to decoupage onto the eggs!
c) Ribbons, Buttons, and Mini-Rosettes
I used a hot-glue gun to attach the ribbons, buttons, and mini-rosettes to the eggs. Use a similar color theme so that the eggs look cute next to one another!
Here are some close-up shots of the finished products, 4 hours later.
