How To Decoupage Easter Eggs -(Delft Blue And White Eggs)
I am in a blue and white kinda mood. And when you are from the Netherlands than Delft Blue China comes to mind. I decided on one more Easter craft for this year. I ventured into the world of decoupage and find out if I could master a new craft technique. See for yourself, did I succeed?
To decoupage Easter eggs with tissue paper you only need a few materials: eggs (real blown out eggs, or plastic fake eggs), napkins with a pretty design, ModPodge, a small craft brush and small scissors.
The steps for making Easter eggs out of tissue paper are easy:
I used two kind of eggs (because I had them) both turned out the same. I had a set of plastic craft eggs from the craft store and I had a couple of real eggs that had been blown out. Since the end result was the same, and I can’t tell anymore which was which, I would advice buying cheap fake eggs, because they can’t break. They have to be white though. Because that one layer of napkin is so thin it won’t cover any color.
Step 1. Separate your napkin and only use the very top layer with the pretty design
Step 2. Cut out the shapes from your napkins.
Prepare a non-sticky area where your eggs can dry.
Apply a thin layer of ModPodge on an area of your egg
Carefully place your piece of tissue paper
Smooth it out with your brush and a little bit more ModPodge
Work on one small area at a time, and let dry

I decoupaged all my eggs over the course of a day. I also got two loads of laundry done, cleaned my floors, went grocery shopping and cooked soup. All in all a productive kind of craft. 😃
