Fill your Easter basket with DIY, Decoupage Fabric Eggs

It was a cold, gray day (kind of like today!) when I saw this bright, daisy print fabric at the store, and voilà, I found my inspiration to DIY these Decoupage Fabric Eggs. I paired the daisy fabric with a collection of pink and orange prints, a jar of Mod Podge and eggs of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, and created this colorful collection of Decoupage Fabric Eggs. While the snow flies outside, these eggs add colorful zip to a gray winter’s day.

Mix & match your prints and colors.

To make Decoupage Fabric Eggs, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • 4” eggs, or other size of your choice
    • Block or scrap piece
  • Fabric scraps
  • Mod Podge, gloss finish
  • Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; wood skewer; paintbrush

To make Decoupage Fabric Eggs:

1. Cut fabric in 1-1/4” strips, and cut each strip into triangles. The triangles don’t have to be perfect and can be different sizes.

How to DIY decoupage eggs

Cut a 1-1/4″ wide strip of each fabric, and then cut the fabric strip into triangles.

2. Insert a skewer in the wide end of each egg to use as a handle.

3. Working on one egg at a time, brush Mod Podge onto a portion of the egg, and place fabric triangles on the Mod Podge. Overlap the triangles to cover the egg. Brush Mod Podge over the fabric pieces. Continue covering the egg with fabric, working on one area at a time. Insert the skewer into a block or other scrap of STYROFOAM Brand Foam while the egg dries. Continue till all of the eggs are covered in fabric.

These eggs are easy and small hands can make them, too.

Place them in a basket, on a plate, in a bowl, or simply line them up on a table or a mantel.

If you’re wondering how other colors and prints will work, take a look at the Spring Egg Wall Art. I used shades of blue for these eggs, and I like this look, too. What colors would you use for your decoupage eggs? The choices are almost endless!

I used shades of Robin’s egg blue, but you can make these eggs any color you like.

Happy crafting!

P.S. I’ve teamed up with Plaid Crafts, makers of Mod Podge, for a little giveaway — details on Friday . . . 🙂 See you then!

    What fun Easter eggs! Feels like spring should be close by any day now. These Easter eggs would be a great way to use up my fabric scrap box in pastel or bright sunny fabrics. This is a super way to have fun with the kids or grandkids in our lives! Thank you, Sharon!

      Half the fun is in picking the fabrics Angie. It would be fun to do with a group, as I’m sure everyone would choose different fabrics. And, it’s easy enough that everyone can DIY them. Thanks for stopping in! Happy crafting. Sharon

  4. Wowzer! What bright and beautiful eggs! On a white day like today this is just what I needed!
    We are in the middle of a Nor’easter and I finally worked on my faux mind wreath! I am loving how it is coming out and will share pictures once it is finished!
    Looking forward to seeing the giveaway on Friday because I love Plaid/Mod Podge products! See you then!

    • Sharon says:

      Sounds like the perfect day for a Faux Mink Wreath, Barb! I can’t wait t see it! It’s pretty white here right now, too, about 10″ of white! Stay warm and I’ll see you Friday! Happy crafting! Sharon

    Those are so pretty.

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you, Lisa. I bet you have these supplies on hand! How’s the weather out there? We’re not getting all of the snow that’s falling east of here, but we’re getting enough! Craft on! Sharon

    I adore these! Love the color and fabric choices. Happy Spring 🙂

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you! I still love the daisies, and I couldn’t resist the bright colors. It’s so gray and snowy today, and the pop of color is a very welcome sight! Happy crafting. Sharon

  9. Katiria says:

    These are great for decoration but I can just see tiny little hands trying to rip open the egg looking for treats inside. Lately nothing is safe in my house and everything has to be kept above toddler height 🙂

    • Sharon says:

      🙂 She’s one smart little girl, and I bet she can’t wait for the Easter bunny! I guess you’d have to display these eggs out of the way — we don’t want to any tears over the lack of candy in these eggs! Happy crafting! Sharon
