A Basket of Decoupaged Eggs



This colorful collection of decoupaged eggs from Lindsay Obermeyer makes a fun and easy decoration for the spring.  You can decorate A Basket of Decoupaged Eggs however you'd like, and you can use them year after year for your Easter and spring decorations.  This is a great project to do with your kids, and is a fun way to use up the last of your paper scrap collection.  Arrange these paper eggs in a bowl or hang from branches for a festive decoration.

decoupage eggs


  • Paper mache egg
  • Assorted colors of tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Modge Podge, matte finish
  • Sponge brush
  • Tin foil
  • Extra fine glitter
  • Glue with a fine tip applicator
  • Dresden gold papers or other small paper diecuts



  1. Pour some Modge Podge onto the tin foil.  Dab your sponge brush into the Modge Podge and begin to coat the egg with a thin layer of the mixture.
  2. Place tissue paper randomly on the egg.  Smooth out wrinkles with your fingers.  Add more Modge Podge and layer on some more tissue paper.  Stop at about 3-4 layers.
  3. With a clean sponge brush, remove excess Modge Podge.
  4. Allow to dry.


Glitter Swirl Easter Egg

  1. Once the egg has dried, apply a thin line of glue around the egg and sprinkle extra fine glitter on the glue.  (It helps to lay down paper on your work surface to contain a possible glitter explosion.
  2. Allow to dry.
  3. Brush off any loose glitter.
  4. Use the newspaper rolled into a funnel shape to pour the loose glitter back into the jar.


Louise Easter Egg

  1. My mother loved Dresden and Victorian scrap papers.  This one is honor of her.
  2. Once the decoupage has dried, apply a thin layer of glue to the back of the gold braid.  Apply it to the egg, vertically circling it.
  3. Apply a thin layer of glue to the back of the butterfly.  Apply one to the front and back of the egg.
  4. Allow to dry.
