Decoupage Floral Design Easter Eggs


Happy Wednesday, Friends! When I posted my spring tablescape last week, I promised to share how I created the floral Easter eggs that were displayed. Ready for  a simple tutorial? Let's go!

You may remember these porcelain eggs that were a recent thrift store find. I wanted to give them a pretty upcycle while keeping their realistic appearance.

A delicate floral design was just what I had in mind. I found some floral stickers in my craft stash. I chose these for their design and because I had them on hand. Cutting a design from pretty scrapbook paper would also be an option.

Since I planned to decoupage, and the adhesive on stickers doesn't always adhere when another medium is added, I cut the stickers out of the sheet but left the backs on. The most important thing when choosing your design is that it isn't too big or the wrong shape to lay well on the egg.

I received DecoArt Decou-Page as a member of the DecoArt Blogger Outreach program. 


I used DecoArt Decou-Page as both glue for the back of the flower and as a sealer on top of the design by brushing it on. Less is better to keep the paper smooth.

Before it dried, I used a slightly damp cloth to smooth it and dab away any excess.

Here, you can see the pansy works well because of its small size and vibrant hues.

The long slender shape of the pastel tulip also fit nicely and I like the contrast between the two floral designs.

I decided not to use the other flower stickers because as I worked, I realized they didn't fit the egg's shape as well. With the four eggs, I made two each of both floral designs.
