Easter Egg Decorations

It’s time for the Easter egg hunt again!  There’s still so much to do before Sunday.  Dyeing Easter eggs is a craft kids truly enjoy and adults alike.  Its’ one of those crafts you can go as simple or as detailed as you wish.   Today I’m rounding up some inspiration especially for you!

Decoupage sounds fancy but it really is easier than it sounds.  Basically it’s just cutting out pictures or fabric and layering it with craft glue and letting it dry.  That is all!  Make sure your eggs have cooled before handling.  Cut out designs from beautiful napkins and paste it on the egg.  Besides craft glue, you can also use Modpodge or egg whites to apply the design.

DIY decoupage eggs for Easter <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Need: hard boiled eggs (cold), pretty fabric, glue (craft glue)<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> 1. Cute out shapes you like from fabric<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> 2. Carefully paint a thin layer of glue and press fabric down on glue - paint another thin layer on top (make sure there are no bubbles in glue)<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> 3. Dry and if you want a glossy look add another layer of glue otherwise display in pretty dish for company.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Eggs will spoil - so only sit out on table when ready to eat.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects,gold leaf and so on

How cool is this?  You don’t have to dye your eggs.  You can boil them, wait until they cool and use your sharpie to make any design you desire.
