Tissue Paper Easter Eggs

Here is a quickie DIY for your Easter basket – tissue paper-decorated eggs.

You need:

Tissue paper – I had some cute paper from a gift bag.
White glue or Mod Podge
A brush – I just used a cheapie foam brush.
And eggs. This could work with either real eggs or plastic. I used plastic.

Cut out the shapes you like from the paper.DSC_0525 (Large) - Copy

If you’re using white glue, mix with a bit of water to thin it out. I used about 1 part water and 2 parts glue.DSC_0538 (Large) - Copy

Cover the back of your piece of paper with the glue, stick it on the egg where you like it, then put another coat on top. Easy peasy.DSC_0541 (Large) DSC_0540 (Large)

Don’t worry about not covering up the opening in the plastic eggs. Just take a sharp blade and re-slice open when you’re all dry.DSC_0543 (Large)

Just a little bit of cuteness to the egg basket. Now if there is any chocolate left by this weekend, I’ll fill them up!

PS – Instead of that messy easter grass, try using a colorful scrap of cloth in the bottom of the basket!
