My assistant today is the lovely Miss Kitty who suggests that you try her favorite method first. We fell in love with some Easter eggs that we saw at Pottery Barn and decided to copy them…no surprise if you already know me and know that I am a big…euh…copy-cat! (Sorry, Kitty!)
This method simply involves starting out with pretty pastel eggs and just adding the lettering. You will find a detailed tutorial including the graphics needed to create the letters on this post…Pottery Barn Inspired Easter Eggs. I love the way these turned out!
Another method is to cover inexpensive plastic eggs with little strips of paper…in this case, sheet music! If you have never découpaged before, this method is also simple and easy. And I love the vintage look! I have a few tips for you on how to keep those strips looking smooth and relatively wrinkle-free on this post…French Découpage Eggs.
I used the same method for these eggs, using small cut-outs of the pattern on a pretty spring paper napkin to create these eggs. To make things even easier, I spray-painted the plastic eggs a cream color first so that if any of the background shows, it won’t matter.
This method is a little more difficult and would probably be easier for you if you already have some découpage experience. For these eggs, I used one image from the same pretty spring paper napkin to cover the entire egg rather than lots of little strips. You can get a detailed tutorial on this post…Botanical Découpage Eggs.
And for this egg, I used a single image of Notre Dame cathedral from some wrapping paper that I found at Hobby Lobby. (When I checked yesterday, it was still available.) Once again, I used the same method as for the botanical eggs. I really love this one…it may even be my favorite!
Whatever method you choose, I think you will have fun découpaging and love the result! I know I do! And I have to confess…taking some liberties with a quote from Apocalypse Now…I love the smell of Mod Podge in the morning! lol
