If you'd like to try "blowing" eggs, here's how. Rinse the egg, then poke small holes in both ends of it. An unbent paper clip works best for me. Sometimes the yolk can be shaken out of the shell, but usually, I have to gently blow on one end of the egg. Once the yolk is out, rinse well and let dry completely. You can see the ones in the photo have been dyed, but that isn't necessary for this project.
Fun chicken fact: The first few eggs hens lay are usually smaller than average. The older the hen is, the larger her eggs are. Of course color and overall size of the eggs depends on the breed of the hen.
Besides napkins and eggs, scissors, a paintbrush and some type of liquid glue is needed. Today, Modpodge is my glue of choice, but white children's glue works fine, too. A safe spot for the eggs to dry is also nice, but not necessary. There happened to be a couple of fruit cup containers in my dishwasher that were about to go in the recycling bin. These worked perfectly for holding eggs while the glue dried.
What a difference a few napkins can make! You can see I left the small ones just the way God painted them.
Would you like to see the "before" photo one more time?
How should I use them in my Spring decor? I'm too excited to decide!

Your decoupage eggs look amazing, Marci! I love your designs! I have a couple of those napkins, too! I've never had any luck getting the yolks out of eggs. I can't believe you were able to do that many without a mishap! You must be an expert at this! Great job!ReplyDelete
I can remember blowing and decorating eggs from when I was a kid. These turned out great and you have such beautiful napkins to use. Pinned.ReplyDelete
So pretty, what a lovely way to use paper napkins, they are the best decoupage medium aren't they?ReplyDelete
OMG! I love these eggs! They're so pretty, and I want to make some for myself! Pinning! These would look great added to a Easter theme tiered tray.ReplyDelete
