Easter is one of my favorite holidays and I’m beginning to decorate my home for the season. Today I’m sharing a fun Easter craft, Decoupaged Floral Easter Eggs. To make these eggs, I used beautiful Caspari Blossoming Branches napkins and blown out eggs.
How to Make Decoupaged Floral Easter Eggs
This is a project that I’ve been wanting to complete for several years. Last year I purchased Caspari Blooming Branches napkins with the intention of decorating eggs with them but never completed the project. I’m thrilled that I finally made these floral eggs and since I used blown out eggs, I’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come.

Eggs – I used blown out eggs but craft eggs would work perfectly and be less work.
Napkins – I used Caspari Blossoming Branches napkins.
Small paint brush
Paper, parchment paper, or waxed paper to protect your work surface
Step One – If you are using real eggs, poke a hole on either end, blow out the contents, wash the eggs and let them dry thoroughly. I got lucky and inherited this dozen of already blown out eggs from my grandmother. She probably intended to make something beautiful with them.
Step Two – Separate the napkin layers then cut out the images from the top layer of the napkin that has the images printed on it.
Step Three – Protect your work surface because Mod Podge can get messy. I was working on our coffee table and taped down a piece of parchment paper to the surface to protect it. Brush Mod Podge onto the egg and then apply the image cut out from the napkin.
Use your finger to smooth down the napkin until it lies flat. If the Mod Podge doesn’t saturate through the napkin, brush a bit more on the image. I added several floral images to each egg and then I filled in the empty spaces with small pieces of the background image on the napkin.
Let the eggs dry completely and then they are ready to be enjoyed.
Decorating with Decoupaged Floral Easter Eggs
I arranged my eggs in a white console bowl by Abingdon USA in the Fern Leaf pattern. I filled the console bowl with two bags of excelsior from Michaels, then arranged the eggs.
I love the contrast of the pink flowers decoupaged on the eggs with the brown excelsior and white bowl.
I’ve been trying to determine which flower is shown on these eggs and my best guess is pink Dogwood.
I originally thought that the bloom was a Cherry but Cherry blossoms have five petals and this only has four.
My grandmother patiently blew out all of these eggs to use for a craft project. She used to make the most gorgeous eggs with a scene inside each one. Perhaps that is what she intended to do with these eggs.
I’m so glad that I finally completed this project and that I have these pretty Decoupaged Floral Easter Eggs to enjoy for many years to come.
I’ll be back on Monday to share an Easter centerpiece and table. I love what I created and am excited to share it with you.
