HOW TO MAKE SWEET DIY FLORAL EASTER EGGS USING TISSUE PAPER AND YOUR HOME PRINTER!
Hi beautiful SI family, thanks for joining me today! With Easter around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share a sweet DIY Easter Egg Project to brighten our spirits. This simple project really perked my mood and it’s also relaxing.
As a bonus, I’m sharing FREE PRINTABLES for this project which you can download at the end of this post.
I started with white eggs. I hard-boiled them so they were more ‘sturdy’ to work with. Honestly, I didn’t want to blow them out or work with them raw. That said, these are not edible after decoupaging. If you’re looking to keep these for years to come, investing in craft eggs may be the better option.
Here’s what they look like now. What do you think… aren’t they sweet and cheerful!?!

I remember as a kid (and into my 20’s) I loved creating Pansky Easter Eggs aka Ukrainian Easter Eggs. I really wish I still had some of them to show you because I practiced on a lot of eggs and got pretty good! My next-door neighbor was the one who introduced me to the craft. She was generous enough to let me and my little girlfriends sit at her kitchen table dying and waxing while she went about doing her laundry, cleaning, etc. There were a number of open jars with bright dyes on her kitchen counters, hot beeswax in the kistka and an open flame. Looking back she was a brave woman.
Anyway, this is a much simpler version. All you need is tissue paper, a home printer, and some decoupage glue.
I’m thrilled with how these turned out. So gorgeous and spring fresh.
DIY FLORAL EASTER EGGS
Did you know you can use your home printer to create designs on tissue paper for ANY type of decoupage project? Here’s a step by step on how I created these Floral Eggs with printable tissue.
I found these cute and colorful florals on Canva. If you’d like to use them (for personal use) YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM AT THE END OF THIS POST.
These Easter Eggs are so bright and cheerful they put a smile on my face!

These are precious! I cannot wait to try this project and find a way to use them all year, maybe drain he eggs? Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Thanks, Cassie! Yes, if I was to blow out the eggs or use craft eggs, these would last for years! 🙂

These are lovely! I would love to have a bowl full of these but I would get everything together, make 1 or 2 and loose interest (blame it on Adult ADD!). I admire your patience and skill in everything you make or paint. Stay safe and strong!
LOL… I hear you! Believe me, my ADD kicks in every now and then too. 😉 Stay safe and enjoy your Easter weekend Cecilia! XOXO
Your decoupage Easter eggs are so pretty, Denise., I love the bright and happy colors! Wishing you a lovely Easter weekend. xo
Thanks, Marie! I know this Easter will be different for a lot of us but I’m wishing you a lovely Easter weekend as well. Hugs
Sue Mellette says
Thanks, Denise. I love the Spring colors. The eggs are adorable and I think I will give these decorative eggs a try. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Sue and have fun. Happy Easter to you and yours! x
AHHHH, I THINK WAY BACK IN THE DARK RECESSES OF MY CRANIAL FILE CABINET, I KNEW THE TRICK ABOUT PRINTING ON TISSUE PAPER. THANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR BRINGING THAT BACK TO THE FRONT FILE. I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TRY THIS.
I LOOK FORWARD TO TUESDAYS, KNOWING THERE WILL BE A NUGGET OF GOODNESS IN MY INBOX FROM YOU.
…”cranial file cabinet”…lol… that’s so funny! Happy Easter to you Diane! x
What a cheery and lovely idea! That is so pretty. I thought it would be really hard to apply the tissue on a rounded or non-flat surface, but you achieved it so well. Kudos!!
Thanks Caye! I think it would have been more difficult to apply if it was one large design but because they are smaller, it’s super easy. 🙂 Happy Easter to you and thanks for dropping by! 🙂
Hi Denise. I’m absolutely loving these sweet little Easter eggs. They’re so pretty and cheerful! Your story of making Ukrainian eggs as a young girl brought back memories for me. What I remember most about creating Easter eggs was the time I spent with my sister (and how her eggs were always more beautiful than mine). Lol. Thank you for sharing your crafty eggs and for reminding me of happy, carefree times:)
Sisters are the best, aren’t they!💕So glad you like the eggs and Happy Easter to you and yours Monique! XOXO
Printing on tissue paper is a brilliant idea! And these are so pretty. I can think of other applications for this idea. And the printer ink is stable with the Mod Podge? The flowers and colors are so so pretty. Thanks for this fun simple project, Denise! Take good care.
Hi Marcia! Yes, the printer ink holds up really well with the Mod Podge. The only challenge I had was on my first egg. I tried doing the entire egg all in one shot and brushed on too much product… brushing way too much and too hard. The ink bled slightly and then I ended up tearing one of the florals in half. Once I used less Mod Podge/brushing – easy peasy! 🙂 Happy Easter Marcia and you take good care as well. XOXO
