If you remember, last year the kids and I dyed Easter eggs the old-fashioned way, and I promised myself that this year we would try something new. Today, we made these gorgeous Easter eggs using Mod Podge and scraps of magazine paper.
All you need are some old magazines, scissors, sponges or paint brushes, Mod Podge, and some eggs. I had these white plastic eggs, but you could use any plastic eggs or even real eggs.
Cut colorful paper out of your magazine into small squares and triangles, then “paint” the paper scraps onto the eggs with the Mod Podge.
Some of our finished eggs.
I love how they turned out. The Mod Podge makes them shiny. I would advise that you use plastic eggs so you can save them to use for decorations next year.
Even though we had a great time making these and I think they are just beautiful, I do think we will also spend a morning dying eggs. The kids love it, and it’s just a tradition that I want to keep alive!
