I have done several Easter egg crafts over the last COUPLE of years, but this was the first time attempting to Mod Podge plastic Easter eggs.
I originally made this craft LAST year, but wanted to update it with some new patterns I found at Michaels. Not to mention, I completely forgot about it…
…this was the first time attempting to Mod Podge plastic Easter eggs.
Michaels had a sale going on (7 for $1.00), gotta love that! I think I got $10.00 worth :)
After I decided on the patterns, I made a trip to the Dollar Tree and picked up some plastic eggs. I ALREADY had the matte Mod Podge on hand.
I was VERY eager to begin on this project!! I just had to wait until nap time…
Step 1 – Cut Your Scrapbook Paper
I cut my scrapbook paper into small pieces, so they would EASILY wrap around the plastic eggs.
Step 2 – Mod Podge Scrapbook Paper to Eggs
I used a sponge brush and painted some Mod Podge on the egg and gently pressed the scrapbook paper OVER the Mod Podge.
I painted a layer of Mod Podge over the scrapbook paper and continued this process UNTIL the egg was completely covered.
Quick Tip: Make sure to firmly press your scrapbook paper around the egg to remove most of the wrinkles.
Step 3 – Let Your Eggs Dry
I let the eggs DRY on wax paper for at least a half hour. I love wax paper because it makes the eggs VERY easy to remove.
Quick Tip: When placing your eggs on the wax paper, be sure NOT to let the eggs touch! Bad things happen when they dry…
Step 4 – Finishing Touches
Once my eggs dried, I displayed them in this cute vintage-ish egg basket I found at Ross for $3.00. TOTAL BARGAIN!

I really like how my Mod Podge Easter eggs turned out :)
They’re not as smooth as I hoped they would be, but hey, “It was a $1.00 for 10 eggs and .50 cents worth of paper…I can’t complain too much!”
