What is Decoupage?
Decoupage is a crafting technique that involves adhering cut-out pieces of paper, fabric, or other materials onto a surface to create a decorative design. For Easter eggs, tissue paper or napkins with various patterns or images are commonly used for the decoupage material.

My eggs were natural colored, so I painted them white. This helps the images to pop and if hides any of the white area of the napkin after it is decoupaged.
Separate the 2nd ply from the back of the napkin. This can be done by picking at the corner until you see 2 sides of paper.
Cut out your patterns: Cut out the patterns or images you want to use from the tissue paper or napkins. Cut them into small pieces that will fit onto the eggs.
Apply glue: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the surface of the egg where you want to place the first piece of tissue paper.
Place tissue paper: Place the tissue paper onto the egg, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles with your fingers. You can overlap pieces of tissue paper for a layered effect.
Repeat: Continue to apply glue and add tissue paper pieces until the egg is completely covered. Make sure to leave some space between the pieces of tissue paper for the egg to show through.
Seal the egg: Once the egg is covered in tissue paper, apply a final layer of decoupage glue or Mod Podge to seal the egg and protect the tissue paper from tearing or peeling off.
Let dry: Let the egg dry completely before handling.
The resulting eggs can have a wide range of designs, from pastel-colored florals to whimsical patterns featuring Easter bunnies and chicks. They can be used as festive decorations or given as thoughtful gifts.
