Want a simple Shabby Chic craft to add to your Easter decorations? Try these easy decoupage eggs with vintage pages (or your choice of paper).
If you’re a mom who’s ever let her kids hunt Easter eggs, then I’m sure you have a few (or a ton) of extra plastic eggs stashed in a closet or your attic.
If not, you can purchase them or paper mache eggs just about anywhere this time of year.
To make these adorable decoupage eggs, you will need:
- Plastic or paper mache eggs (quantity and size of your choice)
- Mod Podge (I prefer the satin finish)
- Vintage book and hymnal pages (or decorative pages of your choice)
- Sponge brush (optional)
Step 1: Rip out pages from the book and begin tearing them into smaller pieces.
Step 2: Pour some Mod Podge into a bowl and with a sponge brush (or your fingers), cover each egg.
Step 3: Spread the Mod Podge over the strips of paper and begin randomly layering them around the egg. Place on styrofoam or paper plate and allow to dry.
