Easy DIY Old Book Page Easter Eggs
Old Book Page Eggs
It’s almost spring and I am gearing up with some Easter farmhouse decor. I love spring and all of the pretty pastel colors that come with it. Flowers and floral everything is my favorite so springtime is one of my favorite time of the year for decorating.
Spring home decor is so fun and colorful. I thought I would start off with doing a DIY egg decorating project. During Christmas I used a lot of old book pages to decorate with and wanted to use them again. Hence this DIY book page egg decorating project.
Decorating Easter Eggs
This project is easy but actually takes a bit longer than you would think. All in all it took me about 45 minutes to finish. I had a bunch of eggs left over and I am going to try something else on the rest.
First up the eggs. I used white plastic ones that don’t open. They came a matte white color and have a small little hole on the bottom of them. I didn’t want them to open so they would have a line down the middle and not be smooth.
If you want to get these eggs click on the image above. They are from Amazon and are only $11.99 for 30 of them!
Step one is to take your book pages and cut or tear them in strips. I just tore them.
You can do long and skinny or short and fat. I chose to do larger pieces so it was less work. But the bigger pieces the more pieces are folded over. I didn’t mind that look.
Step two is to clue the pieces. I used the glue pictured above. I had mod podge and ran out but the glue was actually was easier.
This part is where you can just lay them out and layer the heck out of them any which way. You can add as much as you want just to try and cover all of the white spots.
Step three is to let them dry. After about thirty minutes or so they will be dry enough to add some more glue on some of the edges to make sure they are all sticking well.
Step four is to decorate with them. My favorite part. I added the eggs to a few different places to show how they can be styled. In the end, I ended up leaving them with the candles and shoe form.
Decorating for Easter
Layering the farmhouse Easter eggs with other things was pretty fun. Next up I think I am going to paint some or add some faces to them. I will be adding a lot more spring decor to my home in the next couple of weeks and will share all of it with you guys.
Let me know what you think I should do next. I still have 17 eggs left! Comment below or tag my Instagram for inspo!
