decoupage picture easter eggs

Yesterday Kara Nielsen asked me if it was possible to do my decoupage Easter eggs with pictures of her grandchildren. She asked for some advise on how to do this. I think it’s a great idea to decoupage eggs with pictures. That’s why I decided to make a tutorial on how to do this. I will show you exactly how to print on napkins and make these eggs with your own pictures or prints! I’m not going into the details on how to blow out the eggs. If you want to know how to do that you can read my ‘DIY – Decoupage Easter eggs’ post.

Read how to make these picture Easter eggs after the jump. . .

What you need for these Easter eggs with pictures

– blown out eggs
– white napkins or white napkins with print. You only need one layer, so if the bottom is white you are fine
– printer paper
– tape
– printer
– picture
– Mod Podge
– scissors
– brush

How to make these picture Easter eggs

You need one layer of the napkin for this project. Cut on the folds of your napkin so you will end up with a square. Use tape to put the square on the printer paper. Don’t worry about the kind of tape you are using, you will cut it of in the end anyway. Run the paper with the napkin on it through the printer. You can use any picture or print you want. I used this picture. Let the ink dry for a few minutes. Cut out your image. Keep the paper below the napkin, this makes it a lot easier to cut it out. Use Mod Podge to decoupage the pictures on your eggs.

Hope you enjoyed this very last minute Easter egg idea. Do you have something you want a tutorial for?

    You’re welcome! I really think it’s a great idea to put pictures on Easter eggs. I would go for branches in a vase. If you are able to find them it would be nice to have branches with blossom on it. Good luck making so many eggs!

    Great project! 2 questions…. can you use wooden eggs? what do you mean run through the printer? load it and hit the button for it to run through?

    This is super cool! But the napkin doesn’t ruin the printer?
