Easter Egg Designs
Blue and white porcelain is a classic pattern that stole my heart long ago. Earlier this week when I had the chance to pop into a Williams-Sonoma, I noticed that they had some blue and white dishes for sale. I made my way over to Pottery Barn and saw blue and white there too. I was so excited to see blue and white porcelain back in style.
So this year, while deciding how I would decorate our Easter table, I knew I wanted to incorporate the classic print into the décor. These Easter egg designs are a beautiful way to DIY the porcelain look without buying anything other than some paper, glue, and eggs.
When my husband opened up the refrigerator, he looked at me and said, “Where did these eggs come from?” My reply? “Lady Gray, of course!” Lady Gray is the most regal hen on the ranch, and it wouldn’t surprise me if one of her eggs came out looking like this!
Decorating Easter Eggs – How to decoupage using inkjet printed-paper:
Awhile back, I researched how to decoupage using printer paper. I wanted to decoupage a specific image onto a plate without having to use a special printing method (these Halloween plates). I found that Aleene’s Sealant Spray worked the best to seal images printed with an inkjet printer! It seals the ink into the paper, but still allows the paper to be pliable enough to be glued onto ceramic, and in this case, eggs. To get this look, follow the simple steps below!

- Aleene’s Sealant Spray
- Free Download – artwork from Create The Cut (personal use only)
- Eggs (hard boiled, or faux)
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Cricut Explore Air™
Step 2: Print out the project. Spray a healthy coat of sealant onto the paper. Let it fully dry, then cut using your Cricut Explore Air™.
Step 3: Now it’s time to start adding some blue & white art to the eggs. Add a bit of Mod Podge to the back of a cutout, place on the egg, and use your fingers / fingernail to smooth the paper onto the egg. You may find that you have to hold the piece in place for a while before it completely sticks.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 until your eggs are fully covered.
Step 5: (optional): Add a coat of Mod Podge to the egg to finish the decoupage process. I skipped this step because I didn’t find it necessary for this project. If you’re using faux eggs, and would like to reuse the eggs in the future, you might want to complete this step!
