Dying Easter eggs is traditional, but why not try doing something else this year!
I’m sharing my blue and white Easter egg decoupage decorating idea – made from napkins — which is beautiful and easy to do! Plus, I’ve teamed up with 8 others to share unique egg decorating ideas as well.
Let’s get started shall we, here’s mine…
BLUE AND WHITE EASTER EGG DECOUPAGE DECORATING WITH NAPKINS
This post contains affiliate links.
These blue and white eggs were created using paper napkins that I found at Homegoods. Not only are these decorated eggs an easy project AND gorgeous, they will last a long time because I chose to use faux craft eggs!
Note: This decorating technique works well on hard-boiled eggs, blown out eggs, or faux craft eggs.

... so you're never at a loss for writing ideas!
When I saw these blue and white shell patterned napkins, right away I thought of the classic blue and white china patterns. Which of course I own none of, but have always loved.
I also knew that these eggs would perfectly match my blue couches + blue/white pillows I showcased in my Spring Home Tour, which you can see HERE.
By using faux craft eggs instead of real ones, I can display these beautiful eggs year after year!
DIY Easter Egg Decoupage Supply List
This is what you will need:
- Paper Napkins (Mine are from Homegoods, here’s a similar design)
- Faux White Craft Eggs (I bought mine at Wal-Mart, similar but wood )
- Mod Podge Matte glue sealer
- Paintbrush (similar to my set)
DIY Easter Egg Decoupage Instructions
- Cut out small pieces of the paper napkin. (This will be easier to prevent bubbles and folds).
- After cutting out the pieces, you will want to pull the layers of the napkin apart. My napkins had two layers, some might have more.
- Save only the layer that has the pattern on it.
- Apply a little bit of Mod Podge to the egg with your paintbrush and place the cut-out pattern of the napkin on top. Then apply a layer of Mod Podge over the napkin on the egg and smooth out with your paintbrush and/or fingers.
- Keep adding napkin pieces (as explained in step #4). Arrange the napkin pieces in any pattern that you like.
- Let the newly decorated eggs dry.
- Eggs are ready to go on display!
Note: I found it was best to decoupage half the egg, then let it dry before I fully completed the egg. It made the process go a lot smoother (and less sticky to hold, to complete the egg design).
Remember how I said earlier that I didn’t own any of the classic blue and white china?
Well – I went to a thrift store and found this great blue and white bowl for $2 to complete my vision for displaying this year’s Easter eggs… and I also found this cute little bunny for $1, so I thought, “why not!” haha.
I love how these blue and white Easter egg decoupage decorating with napkins idea turned out. I will definitely do this technique again.
