Easter Egg DIY projects tend to be the kind of thing we pin like crazy, but never actually take the time to do. Between draining real eggs of their yolks, and the complicated instructions that — let’s face it — we just don’t have the time for, we end up settling for store bought plastic easter eggs that are anything but charming. When coming up with today’s tutorial, I was inspired by the vibrant, dimensional illustrations of Eric Carl, and knew that recreating the look on Easter eggs would be a great seasonal fit, and best of all, super easy. The list of supplies can be counted on one hand, and the step-by-step instructions are even fewer! Searching for the spring perfect craft that the whole family can partake in this Easter? Look no further than these cute-as-can-be tissue paper eggs.
- Unfinished plastic easter eggs (we love these!)
- 1 sheet tissue paper in each color you're using
- Mod Podge Craft Glue
- medium size paint brush
- Cut tissue paper into rectangular strips, about 1/2 inch by 2 inches. These can be free handed and imperfect!
- In a small bowl, make a mixture of 1 part Mod Podge to 1 part water
- Begin placing tissue paper strips onto the egg, layering them, and adhering them in place by continuously applying and thin and even layer of the glue mixture with the paint brush. You can use the brush to flatten any pieces of tissue paper that are sticking up.
- Once the surface of the egg is covered, allow to dry completely.
