DIY Decoupage Easter Eggs

These decoupage Easter eggs are fun and easy to make! Also a great craft to do with your kiddos!

You start with a paper mâché egg. You can get these for 3 for $1 at Hobby Lobby. You can also use wooden eggs, also available at Hobby Lobby for a little bit more.

Next, you just need paper. For this egg, I used scrapbook paper, but you can use tissue paper, newspaper, comics, sheet music, ANY paper you want! I ripped up my paper into pieces, but you can also cut the paper.

Next, you need some decoupage glue. The brand I use most of the time is Mod Podge, it is available in glossy and matte finishes, either works great for this project, however I chose to use Matte.

You put some of the decoupage glue on a paint brush, and brush it onto the egg.

Then, you add the paper. Make sure to go over the top of the paper as well with the glue.

Continue all the way around the egg until it is completely covered. You may have to do 1/2 of the egg, let it dry and then do the other half. When the egg is dry, go over it at least one more time with the decoupage.
