Gorgeous Decoupage Easter Eggs

Just hatched: little decorating ideas using pretty papers and simple designs. For the wreath, work with plastic eggs. For other crafts, use hard-boiled eggs, or ceramic ones that you can display year after year.

Grass Roots

Elevate pretty designs atop egg cups and candlesticks for a simple yet striking display.

Here's how: Cut three squares in graduated sizes (3, 2.5, and 2 inches) and colors from origami paper and fold, following instructions (download below). For blades of grass, freehand-cut each with pattern (also in the download below). Starting with biggest cutout, add white glue to back and mold paper onto bottom of egg. Repeat with medium-size cutout, staggering placement of the blades. Finish with smallest cutout. Top with a craft-punched butterfly, if desired.
