Easter Egg Decorating Idea | Decoupage Easter Eggs! | Frugal Craft Projects

This is a fun, frugal, but a little messy way to decorate easter eggs that will keep year after year – Decoupage Easter Eggs!

materials

Materials you will need:

Plastic Eggs  (I’m sure you can get these for a $1 at any dollar store!)  After Easter Clearance = around $0.25 per pack!

White Liquid Glue or Mod Podge

Newspaper print (or magazine)

Glitter Glue (optional)

 

 How to Decoupage Easter Eggs:

Get a few plastic easter eggs.  Make a 50/50 mixture of water and white glue.  Choose a color scheme of newspaper print colors that you would like your egg design to be.  I chose purple, white and blue as you can see in the pic above.  Cut and/or rip the newspaper into small pieces and submerge into the glue/water mixture.  Cover each plastic egg with the newspaper until your design is complete.  This is the messy part and you may need to let them get a bit tacky a piece at a time before you put on another strip of paper.  Otherwise, they will slip off, and you’ll get annoyed, and throw the whole project out the window.   😉

Let it dry overnight.  Squeeze some glitter glue onto the dried decoupaged egg, and smear around until an even layer of glitter is on each egg.  This is a great frugal Easter Egg decor project that the kids will love to be involved in too!  These cost me less than $5 to make!

Your decoupage eggs would be super cute to display in an egg carousel like this one!

How to Save on Printer Ink! Coupon Printers, Listen Up!

  Even though us couponers get items for dirt cheap or free, we sometimes also have to take in account the extra money we spend on either a newspaper subscription, money spent on a coupon clipping service, or our printer, printer ink, and printer paper costs.
