DIY Patterned Easter Eggs!

Happy Weekend!!
I'm still trying to enjoy my Friday - Sundays as much as possible even with the craziness of Covid-19! So far my weekend plans include make a delicious Easter brunch of bagels, cheese and crackers, maybe a smoothie with the rest of my frozen fruit, and whatever else I can find in my kitchen! I also have some big plans for spring DIYs using what I already have in my home! I hope to create some fun crafts for those of you looking to use your creativity during this quarantine! 

  • White Plastic Eggs - You can use any color egg but the colors will show up the best on white!
  • Paper Napkins - I was able to make three eggs using 1 napkin
  • Mod Podge - I used matte finish but you could use glossy instead!
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors

Step One: Take one of your napkins and pull off the bottom layer. Mine came off very easily so hopefully you have the same experience! The napkins I used had a second layer of white that was stuck to the colors so I pulled off this layer after I cut the individual pieces.

Step Two: I think cutting out small squares and adhering to the eggs works best! I cut strips of the napkin and then made 1/2 - 1 " squares. If you have a second layer of white on your napkins, be sure to remove it here or the mod podge will not hold your napkins to the eggs.

Step Three: Paint a layer (the size of a napkin square) of mod podge onto one of your plastic eggs. Place a square onto the mod podge and coat over it with more mod podge. It will dry clear so don't worry about adding too much! Repeat this step until your entire egg is covered. Let dry - I set my eggs on top of rolls of tape so they wouldn't roll around!

Can you tell this was my favorite Easter DIY based on how many pictures I took?!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and can spend lots of time with family even if that means virtual game nights and digital conversations!

XOXO, Karly
