Decoupaged Easter Pails

By Cindy Hopper

With a few pieces of paper you can add your own personal touch to your Easter baskets!

Decoupaged Easter Pails

All you need is a few sheets of scrapbooking paper, Mod Podge, foam brush and punches.

I am loving the circle cutter from Martha Stewart! Wow, it does a great job of cutting any size circle you want! I also think Martha’s bunny punch is extra sweet!

Simply coat the back of your paper shape with an even coat of Mod Podge.

Place the paper shape on the container and give it an even coat of Mod Podge. Allow Mod Podge to dry and then give it another coat.

I monogrammed plastic sand pails for my little girl and her girly cousins. Of course we used the ‘sparkle’ Mod Podge to give it a little girly bling. I gave it a final coat of ‘outdoor’ Mod Podge for extra protection.

This technique works great on eggs also. Be sure to use thin paper to help it conform to the curve of the egg. A flower punch gave this egg a touch of Spring!

these are so cute!
Can you decoupage an egg and then peel and eat it later? I’ve heard mixed answers on that. I’d like to do some decoupage on the hard boiled eggs I’m going to hide for my family on easter, but I definitely want to be able to eat them afterwards. I’d love some advice!
