DIY Tropical Leaf Eggs

We are seeing green! The color is not exactly visible on the snow-covered ground outside yet, and we know Colorado has more snow in her, but inside we have Spring fever. We’re dreaming of warmer days, and the vibe is showing up in our eggs. We love the clean, modern, tropical eggs that adorn our kitchen this year. Here’s how you can do it.

Materials:

Directions:
Step one: Tape a piece of white tissue paper onto a piece of cardstock.

Step two: Print a photo of palm leaves on the tissue paper. We were able to print 9 at a time with our printer without editing the file {thanks for sharing the file, Studio DIY and Balloon Time}.

Step three: Cut the leaves out in small circles, leaving some white around them.

Step four: Paint a small amount of Mod Podge on the egg where you will place the photo.

Step five: Press the photo of the leaf down gently onto the egg. Try to get out all the wrinkles by pressing down on each of them to smooth it out.

Step six: After about 2 minutes, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the leaves, and the surrounding area. Do not swipe the paintbrush too many times over the leaves, or it will make the ink run. Just paint it enough to cover it with a thin layer.

Step seven: Let the eggs dry, then display.
