How To Make Beautiful Vintage Paper Covered Easter Eggs


Hi friends, I hope you are staying healthy and all is well. I know we are all in a strange place right now with this pandemic and it’s a difficult situation for us all. My hope is that I can continue to keep things positive and bring you ideas and inspiration to make your home and lifestyle as lovely as possible(and simple) If you are looking for a simple and quick project for Easter this sweet little egg display is super easy, even for kids. 

Here are the supplies you will need :

  • Paper or plastic Easter eggs.
  • Newspaper or book pages. To make mine extra unique and special, I used some french newspaper that I brought back from a trip to Paris. You could probably find some paper or printed graphics on Pinterest if you search. Also any printed paper would work too, like flowers, polka dots or any fun pattern
  • Small bottle of Mod Podge
  • Small foam brush
  • Distress ink or any ink or staining/aging medium



First, cut your paper into strips either direction





Then, just brush a light layer of Mod Podge onto the egg. Next, take a strip of paper and lay it on the egg then brush another layer of the Mod Podge on top of the strip you added. You can then use your fingers to smooth the paper and the wrinkles out.



Once your eggs are completely dry, you can add the ink to “age” or create a vintage look. I like the tea stained look on mine. Just use a makeup sponge to dab the eggs creating the aged look you want.



And that’s it! super easy and so fun. I placed mine in a large wooden bowl with some wooden eggs I found at the Target Dollar spot. They would also look cute nestled into a bowl filled with moss or straw.



I hope you  enjoyed this super cute and simple project. Let me know if you make some or if you have any questions. I always appreciate feedback and chatting with my followers. If you haven’t subscribed to my blog, be sure to so you won’t miss any new posts.
