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