How to Make Pressed Flower Easter Eggs

1. Get paper Easter eggs.

We recommend using paper Easter eggs for this craft.

You can also blow out real egg shells. Just make sure you thoroughly clean them before using.

Prepare eggs

2. Apply Mod Podge to the egg.

Add Mod Podge onto one section of the egg with a brush. Start with a small spot where you will place the first flower or the Mod Podge may dry before you complete the area.

3. Add a pressed flower.

Place a pressed flower on the spot you just covered with Mod Podge.

Gently press the flower into the Mod Podge so that the entire flower adheres to the egg.

Smooth flower into Mod Podge

4. Seal with more Mod Podge.

Brush another coat of Mod Podge over the flower to seal it in place.

Pressed flowers are very delicate, so be sure to do this carefully so you do not rip any petals off.

5. Repeat with more pressed flowers.

Continue adding more flowers until you are happy with how the egg looks.

We like to do 1 flower at a time so that the entire egg isn’t covered in Mod Podge at the same time, making it difficult to hold.

6. Let the eggs dry.

Place the finished egg in a dry egg carton to to finish drying. Or, cut a recycled paper towel roll down into short 1″ segments to use as temporary egg holders. Place the egg on the tube sideways (not vertically, like you would in a regular egg cup) to minimize the contact between the wet Mod Podge and the paper tube.

You can make as many eggs as you’d like! Kids will love decorating them with different flowers.

When dry, inspect the eggs to make sure you did not miss any spots. If you see any flowers that are loose or need fixing, add more Mod Podge on top.

These finished eggs look great in a basket as Easter decoration!

Or place each egg in an egg cup or paper egg holder to display them individually.
