Decoupage Easter Eggs - Super Easy Copycat Pysanky


Last Easter I really was into trying natural dyes for eggs, see HERE and HERE and marbled eggs HERE.  This year I instead decided to decoupage some eggs. The art of pysanky takes creativity, skill and a steady hand. This knockoff requires only a bit of cut and paste ability.


What you will need:

A dozen blown eggs
Several paper cocktail napkins with pretty, bright designs
Mod Podge Decoupage Sealer
Wooden skewer
Foam Brush
Paper plate
Scissors

What to do:

Separate the two plies of the napkin, removing the plain backing and discarding it.


Cut out small parts of the napkin design and then brush one side of the egg with some Mod Podge using the foam brush. (Inserting the wooden skewer into the hole in the bottom of the egg makes it easier to work with.)


Carefully stick the napkin designs to the surface of the egg, overlapping the edges and then carefully brush with Mod Podge to coat. Let dry. I used my knitting blocking foam square and blocking pins to set the eggs to dry.



Once dry, turn the egg over and decoupage the other side and then let dry completely.  Apply a final coat of Mod Podge over the entire egg and once again set until completely dry.



Happy Easter!
