Here’s a design I created for Easter egg decorating that I hope you’ll love as much as I do. I decorated with plastic egg sleeves years ago, the ones where you place the sleeve around your egg and then dunk it in hot water to shrink the sleeve around the egg. I was quite impressed with them. This wrap is my paper version of those sleeves. Unfortunately it won’t magically shrink to fit your eggs but I promise it’s easy to use—just cut and glue onto your eggs, that’s it.
I’ve probably made over 20 of these eggs to test and perfect this wrap and all the colors have gotten me excited for Spring! You can purchase this egg wrap design here and scroll down for my video tutorial when you’re ready to make these beautiful Easter eggs.
A FEW NOTES BEFORE DECORATING YOUR EGG:
- This egg wrap was designed to fit Extra Large size eggs. The size of this wrap is 5.8″ x 6.2″, so if your imported SVG is in a different size please resize to these dimensions.
2. I use 65lb cardstock paper for my wraps.
3. If your eggs are in the fridge, leave them out for about 30 minutes to reach room temperature. This way you won’t have moisture from the condensation interfering with your glue.
4. In my tutorial I use standard white glue which takes a few minutes to dry, so you have to keep pressing the leaves down on your egg for them to stick. Alternatively you can use a fast drying glue OR leave your white glue sitting out for about 15 minutes to let some of the moisture evaporate. Then it’ll dry faster when you use it on the leaf wrap. You can also use Mod Podge, which is a glue for découpage. If you do let me know, I’d love to see the result!
5. If you find any dry glue on your finished egg, just scrape it off with an X-acto knife.
