    Decoupage is one of the most common ways of decorating Easter eggs. You don't have to be artistically talented – all you need is some patterned serviettes and the white of egg.

    The method is going to work no matter how skillful you are. It is really easy and you don't have to buy any glue. The white of egg is going to work just as well.

    Step 1: if you have blown eggs, put them on a barbecue skewer and wrap rubber bands on the skewer on both sides of the blown egg. This will hold them still.

    Step 2: to make decoupage Easter eggs choose serviettes with small patterns. They copy easily and it doesn't get wrinkled.

    Step 3: The pieces of serviette can be cut out with scissors or torn out with fingers. Tearing is much easier when the line along which we want to tear it our is marked with a dump brush. Water will soften the spots.

    Step 4: Most serviettes have got three layers. For decoupage, you only need the one with the pattern.

    Step 5: If a piece of serviette does not adhere well, soak it with water and it will come off easily.

    If you want to give the eggs a gentle shade, you can add some gold or silver coloring agent to the white of egg. But this must be really pinch, so that the serviette pattern won't get covered.

    You can also avoid the spots with patterns if you haven’t covered the whole egg.

    The Easter eggs we have showed you were not painted with any toxic agents. However, the serviette paint might contain such hazardous substances. That is why we recommend that the eggs shouldn't be eaten.

    Have you ever tried to make such eggs?
