How To Decoupage Easter and Eggs and Gift Tags
Hello everyone! I’m Ayda Algin from Istanbul and I’m one of the new guest bloggers on heart handmade uk for the ‘Craft Cafe’ feature. It is a great
pleasure to be here, I’m one of Claire’s biggest fans and followers (aka Claire’s ‘Lovelies’), like many of you.
Again thank you Claire, for giving me this great opportunity…
Maybe you know but first of all I would like to give you a few details about me;
I have been working full-time as an environmental engineer for a long time but have always been interested with interior decoration, craft, homemade food and art.
In 2011, I decided to have a blog which I called “cafenohut” and started to share my inspirations, crafts, memories, baking adventures, interior ideas and designs.
I also have a new ETSY shop which called “deconohut“, where I’m sharing some of my handmade projects which have been made over the years.
Today I would like to share with you a few Easter ideas. I hope what I’m about to share makes you smile!
We don’t celebrate Easter in Turkey but in a tradition that is so cute, it’s impossible to resist. For the last few years, I find myself decorating eggs with decoupage and it’s great fun!
Let’s have some fun;
You will need:
- White eggs
- Cute bunny drawings
- Decoupage Glue
- Brush (For glue)
- White paper card stock
- Shaped puncher
Firstly we should prepare our eggs. I did the typical poking of the eggshell on each side, as well as poking the yoke to break it and then blowing out the inside into a bowl (lots of scrambled eggs the other morning).
And we glue these cute rabbit drawings on the egg using the decoupage technique and leave to dry. It was so much fun to decorate them!
is to prepare easter tags. It is also very simple, as you can see in the images.
Cut the white paper card stock cut to the size you want and create decorative shapes on the corners of your card with the paper puncher.
I’ve used a cute bunny patterned fabric as tablecloth and I did photocopy this fabric and used for packaging. I think you can use the same patterned papers for packaging and match it with your tablecloth, it looks so pretty.
I hope you like it and see you the next craft cafe post.
