Create a lasting memory this spring by adhering your beloved family photos onto Easter eggs. It is the kind of project that will make you smile to think of, and absolutely giddy to see completed.
Use the photos as seating cards for Easter brunch, hide them around the house for each family member to find their own, or close them up in a carton of eggs for an early morning surprise! Make a dozen for the grandparents and deliver them Easter week, or make one for each co-worker and leave them in the employee fridge for a spring break treat. The opportunity to put these easy photo eggs to good use is endless.
To make the photo print Easter eggs you will need a dozen eggs, photos that you love, an inkjet printer, masking tape, and tissues (the kind you sneeze on).
Hard boil your eggs and let completely cool. Meanwhile, tape a piece of tissue onto a normal printer paper. Tape all the way around the tissue – being sure not to leave an end unattached. Use the tissue taped paper to print your photos onto. As long as it is taped fully around, the paper should run right through any inkjet printer.
Cut around the photo shapes, no need to be exact, but get as close as possible. If the tissue is more than 1ply the bottom layers should slide away once the shape is cut out. Only apply the top layer of tissue to the eggs. Use a small brush to place Modge Podge on the egg and then the photo on top. Gently even out wrinkles with a finger and gently secure the ends with another layer of Modge Podge.
Let the eggs dry. Once the Modge Podge dries, the tissue layer is so thin you won’t be able to tell where the egg ends and the photo begins – the eggs look like portraits in themselves!
