Decoupage Easter Eggs for a Fun Family Craft

Hi Friends! If you are looking for a craft for you or your family, I wanted to share my decoupage eggs.  I know we are sheltering in place and a run to the craft store is not a good idea, but did you know that many of the craft stores are doing curb side pickup? I know that my local Michael's Craft Store is doing curb side. Just order online and they will give you a pick up time.  No need to go in the stores! Before we start, let me show you a vintage Easter egg from Germany.  Believe it or not, the vintage ones are relatively inexpensive. I love the two little chicks in their boat... notice their little snail friend! Decoupage art goes way back.  A noted " decoupeur" or "cutter" was Mary Delaney (1700-1788). She was a favorite of George III and Queen Charlotte. She began her art late in life or at least was noticed by the King and Queen when she was 71.  She used tissue paper as her decoupage medium, which is an excellent source as it molds easily to objects.
