Mod Podge makes crafting things so much easier and faster! This Spring you can create gorgeous eggs to line your fireplace mantle or to decorate the entryway or dining room table. What about a bathroom?! So many ideas!
From HonestlyYum.com comes this great tutorial on using Mod Podge to decoupage eggs for Spring. I think by covering the eggs with botanicals like they show in their pictures, it gives it a beautiful fresh Spring feel. Easter is this Sunday too, so don't forget!!
Tools and Supplies
* Eggs (ostritch, emu or chicken egg)
* Color copies of vintage botanical prints (or wallpaper, wrapping paper...)
* Craft egg stand or candle holder
* sharp scissors
* Mod Podge (matte finish)
* Flat brush
I am in love with these botanical and vintage prints. These can be taken from online sources or if you have a book, simply make copies!
1. Cut out the images you want to put on the eggs.
2. Apply Mod Podge to the egg directly first, then lay the picture.
3. Smooth out the image on the egg using the flat brush.
4. Top the image with a layer of Mod Podge and let dry for about 15 minutes.
5. After all the images are added, simply layer a final coat of Mod Podge over the entire egg.
Once your beautiful egg is dried it is ready to be displayed for all to see. Let the beauty shine as these stand proudly on golden craft egg stands. Other elegant containers will work too. I can see doing an ombre display of color from one egg to the next. That would be so gorgeous!
Tell me how you are going to do this project. What pictures are you going to decorate your eggs with?
