Insects Decoupage Easter Eggs – Frugal Spring Craft

Learn how to make DIY insect decoupage Easter eggs with this easy to follow video tutorial

I wanted to participate in a fun YouTube challenge last week and decided to make these Insects Decoupage Easter Eggs for it.

My friend Yami, The Latina Next Door is challenging us crafty peeps out there monthly to create The Look For Less. I bet you, too, have been drooling over way too expensive home decor before, right? Our goal is to recreate these desirable objects for only a fraction of the cost. And, you won’t believe how much money you can save by DIY-ing your home decor on a budget and how close to the original you can achieve the look of your DIY dupe.

Come, join my tribe:

Nifty Tip: I will be sharing an amazing (dare I say) life-changing hack using a kitchen towel roll.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  • Get your supplies ready & print vector graphics of all the creepy crawlies you love.
  • Cut them out – as close to the edge as possible.
  • Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the faux plastic egg.
  • Place the cut-out insect print on your egg and press on lightly. Tweezers come in handy now.
  • Cover the cut-out with Mod Podge. Make sure to always stroke from the insight to the outside.
  • Let dry.

If you plan on hanging your decoupage Easter eggs on a branch I’d recommend you add the same or a different motive on the back of your egg. I do and I did.

And here is the comparison:

The inspiration I found in a German home decor catalogue called Impressionen VS. my Look for Less DIY project.

I could have bought 6 butterfly & insects Easter eggs for $ 28. But I’d rather made 10 decoupage Easter eggs myself for $ 1.50, some supplies I already had at hand, and a little craft time invested.

What do you say? And which one is your favourite?

Happy Easter,
