Easy Decoupage Eggs For Easter
With today being Good Friday, most schools are closed, a lot of businesses have shut their doors for a long weekend, and you're almost already at your wits end! Where in the world did these kids find sooooooo much energy?
You've downed a couple cups of coffee, made breakfast, got the kids dressed, loaded the dishwasher and washing machine... and to think, it's only 7:00am! Now what? What can you do to keep the kids busy for a little while?
Here's what I plan to do with our grand kids... Decoupage Easter Eggs. They're really easy to make, easy to personalize, look great in a bed of grass, and spruce up the trees that are still a little drab from their winter nap.
Grab a few supplies and let's get started.Supply list:
- Old clothes
- Newspaper to cover the table surface
- White school glue (or Mod Podge)
- Paint brushes
- Tissue paper, newspaper, magazine pages, or any other thin paper you have around the house
- Easter grass or paper shreds (if you want)
- Sand stones, or other small, smooth objects, to weigh them down (not necessary, however; they come in handy if you plan to hang them outside in real windy areas)
- Blow up the balloons and tie the knot (put a stone in the balloon before blowing it up if you choose to
- ps... I enlist the kids to blow up the balloons, no need for me to get dizzy!
- Using a soft string, tie it tightly below the knot
- Snip off the knot and excess string with a pair of scissors
- Prepare your paper by cutting or ripping into squares or rough shapes
- Coat the balloon with a mixture of school glue and water
- 2/3 glue & 1/3 water
- Place a piece of the paper on the balloon, and coat it with the glue/water mix
- Repeat this step until the entire balloon is covered with multiple layers of paper
- Hang the egg from the attached string and allow it to completely dry
- At this point, you can use Mayco Softees to paint faces or designs, add stickers, glitter, buttons etc..., or make it a stand alone decoration by putting some glue on the bottom, pressing it into a bunch of grass or paper shreds and set it off to the side for drying
