Decoupaged Eggs

Decoupaging offers an almost unlimited amount of design possibilities that range from fun to elegant. Almost any thin paper can be used for decoupage, and you don't need any fancy or expensive materials. This project should only be done with Blown Eggs. They will last longer, and some of the techniques used to decorate these eggs might affect hard boiled eggs and make them unsafe to eat. Blown Eggs also will last forever and make great keepsakes or ornaments.

Scissors
Decoupage paper, images, magazines, thin photos, or other designs
White glue or decoupage glue
Soft brush
Varnish (optional)

Detail of Decoupaged EggCut assorted small shapes or images from thin paper or use precut shapes. Thick paper or photos will not conform to shape of the egg easily unless they are very, very small shapes. For photos, we had the best results using color photocopies. Using white glue or decoupage glue (we used antiquing decoupage glue in our Pansy Egg and plain white glue to make our Rose Egg) liberally spread glue on the back of the desired design. Place on the egg and position as desired. Coat the entire egg, including the paper surface with at least one coat of glue, letting dry well between coats. Varnish if desired.
