Decorating Easter Eggs with Napkins Tutorial

PinterestFacebookTwitterEmail

I can’t believe that Easter is less than a month away.  Last year I shared a tutorial for dying Easter eggs using silk ties.  It received such a great response that I thought it would be fun to share another method of decorating eggs this year using another atypical item.  Napkins!

Let’s start off with the super simple material list…

NapkinEggsMaterials

Before you are ready to start decorating the eggs dye them a variety of solid colors using any method of your choosing.  I used food coloring, 1 teaspoon white vinegar, and 1/2 cup boiling water to make my dyes.

1.)  Separate the layers of a patterned napkin.
2.)  Cut out a design to fit on the egg.
3.)  Using thinned Mod Podge apply the napkin piece to the egg.
4.)  Make sure the entire piece is flattened against the egg (I found it easiest to just use my finger to do this) using minimal Mod Podge.

Napkin Eggs Steps

Once the eggs dry you will have beautiful patterned Easter eggs.  Give it a try – the possibilities are endless…

    Great idea! My wife usually takes charge of the egg decorating with the kids, I’ll have to pass on the idea. I remember as a child decorating eggs with food coloring, making a tie dye design.

  3. Very cute! I wish my kids were still young enough to want to decorate eggs. Maybe I’ll give it a try on my own just for fun.

  4. Those are so cool, I can’t believe it’s so easy! They turned out great… I HAVE TO pin this so I don’t lose it :)

    I’m thinking of trying this with my kids. I usually just buy an egg kit and let them have at it, but my 4yr old is getting more and more interested in arts and crafts.
