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…

  • 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

  1. 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! ?

  2. Hi Yvonne,
    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.

  3. 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 !!!
    Happy Easter!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!!!

  9. 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!
