You’ve probably seen before that I like vintage book pages. I’ve made party buntings, even a table runner, and covered little birds with them. I thought it would be cute to decoupage vintage book pages onto Easter Eggs. They go quite nicely with my Chalkboard Eggs this year. I’m kind of going for a neutral palette this year, just a little change from the traditional pastels that usually accompany Easter decor.
I used Mod Podge, paper mache eggs (from Michaels), and a couple vintage books from a thrift store. I chose 3 different books to use because they had varying shades of cream and tan and I liked the effect that this gave.
I simply covered the egg with Mod Podge, using a paint brush. Then tore up little pieces of the book pages and layered them on the egg, making sure to put a generous amount of Mod Podge over each layer. And the great thing is that they will last forever and I can pull them out year after year.
When I put it all together, I think I’ll need to include some burlap. Maybe in the form of a table runner or a Happy Easter bunting.
How are you decorating for Easter this year? What’s got your fancy or is inspiring you this season?
