Tissue Paper Easter Eggs
I love decorating for spring and especially for Easter! I think it is such a fun time of year to bring bright colors into your home and I love adding a touch of spring to my home. I thought it would be really fun to incorporate some bright colored Easter Eggs into my decor this month too and so today I am really excited to share how fun and easy it can be to make your own tissue paper Easter eggs. These are perfect for decorating and would look cute in any basket or bowl. I happened to have a fun glass bowl I put mine in, but anything you have on hand or even an extra Easter basket would be perfect!
Supplies needed to make this project:
- FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Eggs, 1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″
- Tissue Paper in your choice of colors
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Wax Paper (optional)
This project is so much fun to make and it is something you can do while chatting with a friend or even watching a show. There is a little dry time involved so be sure you don’t try to make these right before you need them. And if you like, you can cover your surface with wax paper so that your eggs have someplace to dry that won’t leave a mess.
You will want to begin by tearing your tissue paper into smaller pieces or even strips. Then you will want to put a layer of mod podge on your foam egg using your foam brush. Place the tissue paper around the eggs. There is a good chance that your tissue paper will not look perfect on your eggs and there may be pieces and corners sticking up in places. That is okay. We aren’t done yet! But you will want to let it dry for a bit before continuing.
Add a layer of Mod Podge to the top of your tissue paper eggs. This will help secure the tissue paper down and give it a fun finish! The tissue paper will be crinkly and not perfect, but it isn’t supposed to be. The texture is half the fun!
Let your foam eggs dry overnight. You want to be sure the mod podge is completely dry before putting them into a basket or container of any sort. If you do not let them dry all the way, they will stick to each other and also to the container. But once they are dry, feel free to decorate with them however you like in your home!
I arranged mine in a container, but I think they would be fun strung into a garland or even hanging in a window! They are such a fun and festive way to add a touch of spring and Easter decor into your home.
