How To Decoupage Easter Eggs

Pick a shape to cut out.

  1. There are many way to decoupage Easter eggs. You can start by completely covering the entire foam egg, or you can pick a spot on the egg. I choose to decoupage a specific spot on the egg. I decided on an oval shape surrounded by the white of the egg. For example I used three different napkin designs creating three unique looks. I cut out a specific shape from each napkin. Take off the second layer of the napkin off so the napkin is thin. This makes it easier to glue on.

2. With a foam brush or artist brush paint the foam with white acrylic. Painting the foam eggs gives a flawless appearance.

3. Add the Modpodge on a portion on the foam egg. That is where you will glue the cut out image. Press the cut out napkin carefully on the glue tapping with your fingers carefully.

4. After the first coat dries apply another coat to the napkin design for added protection.
