We’re back with more Easter ideas, featuring this time, a DIY Floral Decoupage project (check out the previous tutorial). Shannon Von Eschen takes us through the details to create this oh-so chic look!
Hard-boiled, blown-out eggs, or crafting eggs
Egg cup (or egg carton)
Wedding or flower magazines
Sharp scissors (Small, precision ones work best)
Mod Podge glue
Small, flat paint brush
1. Browse your magazines for flowers! I had a blast doing this using an array of wedding magazines I already owned. Select a few pages that have your desired flower or floral look, and begin gently cutting out the flower(s). Repeat. Set aside your floral image clippings. (Tip: While all wedding magazines have flowers, Martha Stewart Weddings usually has the most! And in the unlikely event you cannot find any available magazines, there are lots of free botanical prints online you can download and print.)
2. Select the egg you’d like to start with and the flower clipping image(s) you’d like to use. Holding the clipping onto the portion of the egg you’d like to decoupage with one hand, use your other hand and lightly dip your brush into the Mod Podge and begin lightly painting the glue over the flowers. (Tip: You don’t need a lot of Mod Podge, and too much can ruin your clippings. Less is more here, though you may need to do several thin coats to fully adhere your flowers to the eggs.)
3. Once your flower image clippings are fully coated, allow them to dry completely in the egg cup or egg carton. Once they’re dry, you can layer additional flower image clippings to each egg, or add a few more around the sides. There are no rules!
Beyond stunning, no?! Coming up next- stylish tablescape details for your Easter Brunch!
