Easter Craft: Decoupage Designs

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

You don't have to be an artist to create these keepsake eggs. Just cut illustrations or photos from magazines, scrapbooking supplies, or other printed sources, or download them from the Web. (They should be fairly small, so they lie against the egg without too many wrinkles.)


  • Cutout images
  • Stiff paintbrush
  • White glue or Mod Podge
  • Undyed, blown eggs (see below)


How to blow out a raw egg: Wipe the outside of the egg with vinegar and pat it dry with a paper towel. Use a large needle to make holes (about 1/4 inch in diameter) in the top and bottom of the egg, puncturing the yolk. Holding the egg over a bowl, blow through the hole in the narrow end of the egg. The insides will flow out the bottom hole. Carefully rinse the egg inside and out and allow it to dry.

Use the paintbrush to apply a light layer of glue or Mod Podge to an area of the egg slightly bigger than your image.

Lay the image on the egg, then spread more glue over it, brushing gently until the paper relaxes and lies flat against the egg.

Add more images if you like, then let the egg dry thoroughly, about 15 to 20 minutes.
