Cut paper or materials to size. You can use larger sheets or strips of paper or cut out parts of the design. If you’re decoupaging with napkins, separate into layers first.
Affix paper to egg.
Apply a thin layer of decoupage glue onto the egg’s surface. Then add the paper on top, gently smoothing out any air bubbles.
