Paper Napkin Decoupage Easter Eggs

Thanks to Pinterest, I came across these paper-napkin decoupage eggs from Martha Stewart.  Her craft project uses blown-out eggs and Mod Podge to create longer-lasting decorative eggs.  I decided to try a simpler approach with my three-year old son as an alternative to dyeing Easter eggs.

We used hard-boiled eggs and painted the paper napkin pieces onto the eggs with a diluted Elmer’s glue mixture.  My son loved this art project.  I cut out the napkin designs and he went to town with a paintbrush and the diluted glue.  This simple arts and crafts project is appropriate for all ages and is relatively mess-free.  I simply used the napkins that I had in the cupboard but the design and theme options are endless.
