How to make Easter egg decoupage

We got a little excited after our first decoupage and this time we made Easter egg decoupage together with the children. We glued small patterns from napkins on Styrofoam eggs. Fast action and extraordinary effect 🤩

I encourage you to take a look at the first post about decoupage, where I included many tips on how to start and what glue to work with.

How to make Easter decoupage eggs

With eggs you need to take a slightly different approach than with flat surfaces. Therefore, instead of one large pattern, it is best to have many small ones. This results in much less creases. Napkins should be separated into 3 layers and leave only the one with the pattern.

Next, we proceed similarly to the previous decoupage, i.e.:

  • Apply a thin layer of glue to the Styrofoam egg.
  • Gently apply subsequent napkin patterns and gently press with your fingers. Do not move so as not to damage the napkin. Larger patterns will get a little lost, but that’s not too bad. After applying the top layer of varnish, it will not be very noticeable. Set aside to dry.
  • Put another layer on the napkin to protect the napkin. Leave to dry again.
