Paper-Napkin Decoupage Egg Tutorial

As my Easter colour palette is based around some pretty bird print napkins from H&M it seemed only fitting to use one of the napkins to decorate a whole bunch of hanging plastic eggs using a decoupage technique.

As the napkins are on a duck egg blue background I painted the eggs in a similar colour. I love how they have turned out and can't wait to hang them from some branches.

Here's how I did it...
