Create some pretty decoupage eggs to display at Easter time. I covered cheap plastic eggs bought at a craft shop but you could also
blow real eggs
as a start point. To cover the eggs, you can use any thin paper or tissue paper.
Plastic eggs (or
blow real eggs
to get a delicate hollow shell)
Colourful or patterned thin paper (e.g. wrapping paper, tissue paper or decoupage paper - the thinner the better). I tried different types of paper for my eggs and my favourite was this lovely
Caroline Gardner black, red and green tissue paper
PVA white glue
Cheap fillable plastic eggs ready to cover
Make up a paste of 50:50 PVA glue and water.
PVA glue and water mixed into a paste
Tear the tissue paper or thin wrapping paper into small pieces.
Cover the egg with glue paste and stick the small pieces of paper over the egg. Add more paste on top as you go. It will dry clear.
Once the egg is completely covered, seal with another layer of glue paste and leave to dry. You can use a cardboard tube on it's end as a stand to balance the egg on while it dries.
Once dry, you can add another layer of paste as a varnish if needed. For a really glossy finish, cover with gloss varnish.
I added some gloss varnish. I cut a cardboard tube into rings as a stand whilst the eggs dried
The eggs look pretty displayed in a simple bowl and brighten up any table or shelf around Easter time.
