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.

- Napkins with small Easter patterns – the most ordinary napkins that we use at the table. For eggs you need those with small patterns.
- Mod podge or other decoupage glue – I used the Pentart brand, it is very efficient.
- Styrofoam eggs
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.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
