Classic blue and white, who doesn’t love that color combination? And adding that classic chinoiserie Oriental design makes these Easter eggs over the top gorgeous!
These are upscale and chic eggs! I made a bunch of them to use this Easter.
Chinoiserie eggs are so easy to make. Most of the time spent while making them was waiting for the Mod Podge to dry. So I would Mod Podge a little and then go about my day and Mod Podge a little and go about my day.
This is such an easy decoupage DIY! Even if you are not crafty you can glue a napkin to an egg! This would even be a good craft for an older child.
Ways To Use Chinoiserie Eggs
Here are some creative ways to display them…
- add them in layers to a large glass hurricane
- in a tiny nest
- at each place setting on an Easter table
- perched on a candlestick
- nestled in a handful of moss
- put them in an Easter basket with white crinkle paper
- blown-out eggs or white plastic eggs like the ones HERE.
- chinoiserie cocktail napkins or other decorative napkins (see them HERE)
- matte MOD PODGE (see it HERE)
- foam brush (see them HERE)
Instructions To Make Chinoiserie Eggs
Here’s how to blow out the content of an egg leaving the shell intact…
- Make a small hole (a little smaller than the eraser end of a pencil) in the top and bottom of a fresh egg using the tip of a sharp paring knife or a skewer.
- Poke a toothpick in the holes to break the membrane so the egg contents can come out.
- Put your lips over the pointy end of the egg and blow the contents into a bowl. Save the contents of the egg for later use. Don’t blow too hard or you might break the egg. A steady medium stream of air works best.
- Rinse by running a slow stream of water into the egg through the largest hole
- Dry off the ends of the eggs.
- Let the egg air dry inside and out.
- If you don’t like the idea of blowing out an egg you can use white plastic eggs.
- separate all the ply of the napkin
- keep the top ply that has the chinoiserie print on it
- and discard the other ply
MAKE THE CHINOISERIE EASTER EGGS
- Tear off small single designs on the napkin and set them aside.
- Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to a foam brush or an old painting brush.
- Paint a small area of Mod Podge onto the egg and cover that area with one of the little pieces of torn tissue pieces.
- Smooth the tissue down onto the egg by brushing a little more Mod Podge over the tissue and then gently smooth it down with a paintbrush or your finger.
- Work on a small area and let it dry on a piece of wax paper, nonstick Reynolds wrap, or another nonstick surface.
- Work on a small area at a time until the chinoiserie egg is covered. I worked on a dozen eggs at a time.
- If you need to fill in small areas, cut a little strip or tear off smaller pieces of napkin and add it to the egg.

FAQs About Chinoiserie Egg DIY
Beautiful and easy to make, these spring DIYs be fun to make and look so attractive in your home
I hope you will make these beautiful Chinoiserie pumpkins. If blue and white is not your spring thing you can choose any decorative napkin! Happy Spring Diy-ing!
Hi Yvonne! I just love chinoiserie anything. I collect the ginger jars. I love how you’ve transformed these eggs into chinoiserie eggs, just beautiful! I’m going to try this same technique on some pumpkins in the fall as well. I bet they’d look great! Didn’t you have some of those this past fall? Someone did and I just loved them so much! I saw where someone else did these same type eggs but she cut her designs from the napkins out piece by piece. Well who’s got time for that? Not me! I like your way much better! Thanks so much for the link for the napkins and the tutorial. I think I can actually do this, lol! Have a great blessed day! ?
I did make chinoiserie pumpkins. Here’s the link:
The napkins are ordered! Today I’m trying modpodge for the first time with terra cotta flower pots. Not sure how successful I will be with blowing out eggs, but I might give this a try if I like working with the modpodge.
The eggs look beautiful and would fit right in with the blue and white I have going on right now at home.
This is a fav project of mine..your chinoiserie eggs are beautiful!
Yvonne, These eggs are so beautiful and in my FAVORITE color scheme, blue and white!! I can’t wait to try this DIY. PS LOVE, love , love all of your decorating and your beautiful home !!!
Thanks so much Vicki!
Oh how pretty! I love these. Last fall I made the Chinoiserie pumpkins like yours and love them. I received so many compliments, and added lots of blue in my usual fall colors and was thrilled with the result. Now to try the eggs!
Yvonne, these are so gorgeous and everyone else thinks so, too because the napkins are sold out on Amazon! I guess I’m late to the party. I may look around a bit and see if I can find another design I like and try that until I can get my hands on the beautiful blue and white. You always have the most wonderfully creative DIY’s and I look forward to each new post! Thank you!
Oh no! Try to do search on Amazon of “blue and white paper cocktail napkins” or “paper chinoiserie napkins” and see what happens.
Thank you! I found some that I think will work – they’ve got a lot of pink, though, but I’ll practice and continue to look for the gorgeous blue and white.
Beautiful X10 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I love the eggs, it looks easy seeing you do them. Maybe I will be successful!!! I love you post!!!
Absolutely gorgeous! And, so easy. I’m going to try this. Thanks for giving us so many helpful hints and ideas. So love reading your blog!
these are gorgeous!! And seem simple!
Love these eggs! Do you think I could use white plastic eggs for this process? Yours are beautiful.
Just gorgeous, Yvonne! So glad you shared on Homestyle Gathering! 😉 Hehe!
Another option is to glue some plastic eggs together, insert a toothpick in the hole they all have. Place egg on foam and spray paint a matt white, allow to dry, and then embellish.
These are so gorgeous that I would not limit their use to Easter; I am a blue and white china fan–can you tell??? Next time, I will get white eggs at the grocery store and we’ll be eating omelets and scrambled eggs forever!!!
I know! But I am also so partial to blue and white
My Dear Yvonne
It has been several years ( 4 spinal surgeries) since I have visited your beautiful home, your lovely personality, AND Wonderful Ideas. Your words and mine “Perfectly Sublime”, Gorgeous are the words I would use to describe these Beautiful Blue and White Eggs! Blue and White is also my favorite too!
Hi Elizabeth, welcome back! I pray your back is better! I’m so glad you are here!
I’m making them right now! beautiful
These eggs are gorgeous! I’m going to have to try them.
They are also so easy to make!
I did the pumpkin in the fall and will be making these as well!❤️. Thanks!
Yay! I know they will look so pretty as part of your spring decor.
Hi Yvonne…I’m a long time follower . I made these covered eggs with blue toil napkins …they are gorgeous! They are goose eggs that I was planning to paint. This was much easier and of course the blue goes great with my collection of blue and white China and cobalt blue depression ware. Thanks for the inspiration. Sandi
Sandi, I bet the goose eggs done in blue and white are fabulous!
