Tissue Paper Easter Eggs
It’s Day 2 of Easter Egg Week! Today I’m back with an old idea with a modern touch – tissue paper Easter eggs! Tissue paper + Mod Podge + eggs is a no fail combo and easy enough for the littlest of kids to do. Believe me, Hazel made two of these!
These remind me of little abstract pieces of art. The color palette with a touch of metallic gold keep these more modern and less grade school art project.
The best part? I used fake eggs, so they will keep year after year!
Supplies for Tissue Paper Eggs
- Dyeable craft eggs (I found these at Michaels for $2.99 for 12) or hard-boiled eggs
- Tissue paper in a variety of colors
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
How to Make Tissue Paper Eggs
Step 1. Tear tissue paper
Tear your tissue paper into small pieces (the perfect preschooler task!)
Step 2. Add Mod Podge
Using your foam brush, spread an even layer of Mod Podge on the egg, working on a section at a time. Press pieces of tissue paper in the Mod Podge and seal with another thin layer of Mod Podge on top so that the tissue paper lays flat. Keep working your way around the egg, adding more pieces and more Mod Podge. I like overlapping the pieces and letting the egg show through in some spots.
I used this nifty Martha Stewart drying board to dry the eggs. If you dry them on a flat surface don’t dry them on paper (like a paper plate) or they will stick! Once they are dry (wait a couple hours) seal them with one more coat of Mod Podge and you’re done.
Pretty, fun, easy, and non-perishable. What more could you want in an Easter egg?!
