Decoupaged Egg Tassels

These adorable egg tassels are easy to make from an inexpensive paintable egg kit and can be used to decorate many things.

I started with this painting egg kit I found at Target at one time.

The eggs are hollow and plastic. 

I began with these supplies:

eggs, Mod Podge and carrot napkin

The Mod Podge I'm using for the first step is a matte Mod Podge

The decorative napkins are from Marshalls but you can use any pattern. 

I began by peeling apart the napkin into 3 pieces. 

3 napkin plys

I'm only using the top printed napkin ply. 

I cut the napkin into small squares and began gluing them to the eggs using the matte Mod Podge.

The napkin pieces are overlapped as I painted the Mod Podge under and over each piece.

I let the eggs dry on a piece of aluminum foil so they wouldn't stick to the surface.

When the eggs dried I sanded them lightly with a large emery board to remove any bumps.

Now it was time to make the tassel. 

I used cotton twine for this part, wrapping it around 3 fingers 20 times.

I put a longer piece of cotton twine through the tassel and tied another small piece around the top of the tassel. 

Next, I cut straight across the bottom of the tassel.

The top and bottom of each egg was pierced with a sharp scissor to make a hole. 

I added a wooden bead to the tassel then made a "needle" from thin wire to drag the longer piece of twine through the egg from bottom to top.

At the top of the egg I tied a knot at the top of the egg and then a knot higher up to form a hanging loop.

It was at this point that I used glossy Mod Podge to give the eggs 2 coats and a beautiful shine.

I hung the eggs by the loops to dry.

These eggs are perfect to decorate a wreath.

You can also hang them from branches

You can read about how I made the textured vase and where those beautiful sticks came from too!

My favorite way to display them is on a few sticks with moss in a pot.
