How to make decoupage Easter eggs with napkin technique and ribbons

How to Make Decoupage Easter Eggs With Napkins | Tutorial




Coloured Easter eggs with great motifs are easy to make yourself: all you need are beautiful napkins and glue. This is how to make decoupage Easter eggs.

You can decorate all kinds of objects with napkins: Clay pots, picture frames, cardboard boxes – and Easter eggs. Since my childhood, however, the napkin technique has fallen into oblivion for me.

The napkin technique is wonderful if you want to make last-minute Easter eggs or do crafts with children. I decorated my Easter eggs with spring-like flower motifs and glued them with fabric ribbons. It’s quick and easy and looks really pretty.

Materials You Need


How to Make Decoupage Easter Eggs With Napkins

How to make decoupage Easter eggs with napkin technique is quick

You only need 1 layer for the napkin technique

1. Tear the Napkins

First, carefully tear apart the napkin – it usually consists of 3 or 4 thin layers of paper. You only keep the layer with the motif printed on it, you don’t need the white layers. Then you very carefully tear out small motifs. Tearing is better than cutting in this case, by the way, because it makes it easier to conceal the edges.

2. Glue on Motifs and Seal

Then brush a thin layer of napkin glue onto the egg and let it dry briefly. Now place the torn out motif on top and dip the brush into the napkin glue and carefully brush the motif from the inside to the outside with the glue. Use the glue sparingly and paint until there are no more wrinkles.

The motif should be completely covered with napkin glue and thus sealed.

I glued two flowers as a motif on each of two opposite sides, leaving space on the sides for the fabric ribbon.

3. Designing Easter Eggs With Napkins and Ribbons

Once the Easter egg is dry, you can move on. I first glued the yellow fabric ribbon once around the egg and left the opening of the egg free at the top.

To hang it up, I broke a toothpick into pieces about 0.8 cm long, stuck it to a thin white silk ribbon and pushed it into the opening until the piece of wood layed across. But there are also ready-made hangers.
Now I just tied a bow and glued it to the top of the egg to hide the glue line for the ribbon and the hole for hanging.
