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