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.
