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…

HOW 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 of 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.
- Dry off the ends of the eggs.
Let’s get our napkin ready…
- separate all the ply’s of the napkin
- keep the top ply that has the chinoiserie print on it
- discard the other plys
MAKE THE CHINOISERIE EASTER EGGS
- rip out small single designs in the napkin and set aside
- add a bit 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 to the egg by using a bit more of Mod Podge over the tissue and then gently smooth it down with your finger
- work on a small area and let it dry on a piece of wax paper, non stick Reynolds wrap or other 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
