The BEST Way To Decoupage Eggs

I've found the best way to decoupage eggs.
You will just love this!
Let's get started.
Instead of cracking eggs when I use them,
Larry's been blowing them out for me. 
This is so easy and you won't need to buy a
thing. You will not have to invest in ModPodge
 or concoct some formula found on Pinterest.
All you need is...
a pastry brush and egg whites ! !
Also it doesn't stink up your house or get 
gook on your counters. Plus it's safe for your
children to use because it's non-toxic,
and easy to clean up with soap and water.
Use printed dinner or cocktail napkins.
Separate the colored side of the napkins.
Cut into random size strips.
Brush some egg white on the egg shell. 
 Lay on a strip of tissue.
 Brush the edges down with a bit more egg.
Smooth gently with the brush.
Keep adding tissue and egg whites.
Smooth as you go with the brush and your fingers.
 Let dry several hours.
I have mine nestled in a basket with
a thyme plant.
 You can make any color eggs you want!
I'm doing a blue and white theme this year.
I decoupaged eggs last year and this is
so much easier. I can do a few at a time,
 then just refrigerate the leftover egg whites,
 rinse the brush or pop it in the dishwasher.
If you've never tried your hand at decoupage,
 now you can try it with no fuss.

Cheers!

tip: How to blow eggs.
Larry does this for me.
You'll need a long thin nail or you can use
an awl and a skewer.
Carefully poke through the end and go all
the way through to the other end. Move
it back and forth to help break-up
the egg yolk.
You can use a straw at the larger hole to
blow out the contents, or just use your
mouth. Rinse out the eggs with water.
Blow out excess and let dry.

another easy way to decorate eggs
 is Doodle Eggs.

  3. What a great idea, but then you always come up with great ideas! I'm going to do this, unlike you I don't have a ton of paper napkins for every occasion (you're also the organizer queen) so heading out to get some now. Love the blue napkin print.

  11. Love your idea of this, they are beautiful! I wouldn't have the patience to blow out the egg white. How do you wash the eggs out inside with water without them breaking or smelling insideslater on?
