Make Madness 2018 – Day 16 | Decoupaged Easter Eggs

In preparation for Make Madness, I found a slew of cardboard eggs that I had great plans for at one time.  While I had my napkin collection out for Day 12 (Mini Lined Envelopes), I decided to use them to decoupage these eggs.

I chose a napkin with vintage writing, butterflies and flowers (a Parisian feel), cut it into strips and used a 50/50 solution (50% Mod Podge/50% water) to glue on the napkins.  Full strength Mod Podge can be a little too much for the thin napkins and cause them to tear.  After they were completely covered, I set them to dry and then added another coat of glue because I wanted to coat them in glitter.  I chose silver, goal and iridescent glitters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After I’ve finished a few more, these will look lovely in a glass vase maybe surrounded by twinkly lights.  I love the vintage look and how the plain cardboard plays against all the glitter.

Until tomorrow,

Grace

 

 

 

Hey that glitter is almost as shiny as my coat.  Not quite, but close.
