Decoupaged Easter eggs.











As a florist, I am always surrounded with fresh flowers (plants and permanent botanicals) everyday. I start my day at the shop arranging flowers and end my day with more arranging flowers! How lucky am I to be working with beautiful works of nature!

With fresh flowers so accessible to me, I enjoy working on pressed flowers as well. I use them on my handmade cards, framed art work, and now...I used them to spruce up some Easter eggs I bought from Michael's.

These Easter eggs are so much prettier when I added pressed flowers using decoupage technique. I just glued a few pressed flowers on the (plastic) eggs using liquid glue, then brushed on modge podge onto it. I a few minutes for it to dry before I brush on more layers of modge podge. The modge podge is white when you brush them on, but it dries clear. And the finished product is so pretty and shiny too!

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
