Hey Ladies- I have actually been trying to figure this out how to get pictures on an egg for a couple of weeks. I have tried numerous different methods and exploded a bottle of Dimensional Mod Podge all over everything within a 5 foot radius! The method I will explain below is the one I found to work the best. What you need:
- Exchange size (1.5″x2.25″) School Pictures (I used a Wallet Size image of myself and it didn’t turn out as well, as it was a little too large.)
- 12 Plastic Decorating Eggs (I got these in the Easter section at Wal-Mart. They have the texture of an actual eggshell, but much more durable. Awesome!)
- White copy paper
- White tissue paper
- Small foam craft brush
- Scotch tape
- Matte Mod Podge
- Sharpies in fun colors
- Tape your pictures to a piece of copy paper as shown above.
- Cut a piece of tissue paper just smaller than the copy paper and use the Scotch tape to completely tape the top and bottom edges. If necessary, you can iron the paper to get out a good majority of the wrinkles and folds. Place the tissue paper in the paper tray and copy the images onto the tissue paper.
- Cut the faces out of the tissue paper.
- Use the Mod Podge and foam brush to adhere the images to the eggs. Be sure to smooth as you go, being very careful not to tear the paper.
- When the Mod Podge dries, use a pencil to lightly sketch stick people on the eggs. I created simple designs that included my kid’s interests.
- Using Sharpies color in your sketches.
My kiddos got a huge kick out of these and loved the fact that we created our own Easter decorations. Happy Crafting!
