How To Decoupage And Decorate Eggs
Start by deciding whether you would like to use wooden eggs or blown eggs, as either will work well. Then cut out a selection of small floral designs from the decorative papers and wrapping papers. Search for interesting shapes in the papers that will fit, and cut them out.
Think about the design ahead of sticking. Layout your papers on the label and move them around to get a design that looks nice.
Next, using PVA glue, stick the flower cut outs on to the eggs. Make sure that you overlap the edges a little to ensure that you cover the whole surface. All of the shell needs to be covered.
How To Varnish Decoupage Eggs
Once the glue is completely dry, cover the eggs with four coats of clear nail varnish/polish. And ensure that you allow each coat to dry before applying the next coat.
This varnish will give extra protection to the paper and stop it peeling off. But also give a nice finish and make your decorative eggs look more professional.

And there we are. What a great, simple project. Take your time and make your designs look interesting. Do a little collection of eggs, rather than just one or two.
