    Mod Podge Eggs

    I don’t think I can imagine Easter without making Easter eggs. In lieu of dyeing them this year, I knew I wanted to go the Mod Podge route. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a pattern I liked or a color that worked, but luckily I found that printing on tissue paper is easier than you’d think! This freedom allows you to use anything and everything, including making your own print!

    Mod Podge Eggs
    White Tissue Paper
    Floral Patten or Own Design
    Card Stock
    Mod Podge
    Craft Eggs or Real Ones
    Mod Podge Eggs
    1. Find a pattern or illustration you want to use for your eggs. I found mine on Creative Market but crating your own design would be fun.
    2. Cut the tissue paper to fit on the card stock and tape the corners down. Print out the pattern on the tissue paper, making sure ink is fully dry before using it.
    3. If you printed individual illustrations like I did, cut them out as close to the edge as possible. If you printed a pattern, cut down so it can wrap the egg.

    4. Using your brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge directly on the egg and lightly press down the tissue paper design.
    5. Very carefully apply another thin layer over the design, making sure not to press too hard so the paper doesn’t tear. Slowly paint outwards from the center of the design smoothing out as many wrinkles as possible.
    6. Let the section dry, and repeat until the eggs is completely covered.

      Is this for emptied eggshells or for ones where you’re going to eat the eggs afterwards?

      I’ve made Easter eggs and Christmas ornaments out of eggs this way for years. I like to add a little super fine, clear, iridized glitter to the egg when I’m done with the design.

      I’m having a hard time following the directions, especially Step 2. More detailed pictures would definitely help of this step. I’m getting the impression you’re printing onto tissue paper through a printer but that doesn’t make sense. Thanks in advance!

        Hi Genevieve, you tape the tissue to the card stock and stick that into the printer, is what I understand!

          Thank you Liz!
