How to make DIY Dollar Tree Easter Decor with Decoupaged Eggs
Alright, y’all, step one of making this adorable Easter decor DIY is to decorate your Dollar Tree sign box. The sign box that I used had some paper pieces inside of it, so I had to remove those. Then, I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit inside the sign box.
Once you have your scrapbook paper ready, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the inside of your sign box and carefully place the scrapbook paper onto it. You want to avoid creating any wrinkles or creases, but if they form, you can use a piece of plastic saran wrap to smooth them out.
Set your decoupaged sign box to the side and get ready for the fun part – decoupaging the Dollar Tree craft eggs! I used 5 eggs, but you can use as many or as few as you want.
Decoupaged Easter Eggs
First, I poured Mod Podge into a small mixing bowl and pushed the eggs onto wood skewers. Then, I dipped the eggs in the Mod Podge and used a paintbrush to brush off the excess and spread the Mod Podge across the egg.
Once the egg was completely coated with Mod Podge, I pressed a piece of tissue paper onto the egg until the paper was secured on the egg.I used patterns for my eggs to give them a bit of variety but you can use however many patterns you want for your recreation of this adorable Easter DIY.
The first pattern was floral tissue paper. The second was a typewriter pattern scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby! To make the scrapbook paper work for this project, I first cut it into small strips. Then, I dipped the paper strips in water before I pressed the paper onto the Mod Podge on the craft eggs.
To allow my eggs to dry, I pushed the skewers into a block of floral foam and set them to the side while I continued working on the sign box. The next step of decorating the sign box is adding the metal bunny.
I pulled that bunny off a Dollar Tree Easter sign, but if you find one somewhere else, feel free to use that one instead! I pulled the little burlap bow off the bunny’s neck, then painted my metal bunny white with Folkart Chalk Paint.
Once the white paint had dried, I went back over the ridges of the metal with Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint. This creates an aged finish for the metal, but you have to keep a light hand with the brown paint.
If you add too much brown paint, you can dab back over it with a wet wipe to blend it out and pick up the excess paint. Allow the brown paint to dry, then hot glue the little bow back onto the bunny’s neck.
How to stain wood
Next, I stained 4 wood craft cubes with Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint. To do this, I dabbed a wet wipe in the brown paint, then used the wet wipe to spread the paint across all the sides of the wood cubes. Once they were dry, I went back and painted them white.
Allow them to dry completely (I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process), and hot glue them to the bottom of your sign box. These are the little feet of your sign box.
At this point, your decoupaged eggs should be dry. Cut the skewer at the bottom of the egg and trim off any excess paper. Now, you’re ready to start putting all the pieces of this DIY project together!
First, hot glue the metal bunny to the inside of your sign box. Then, hot glue the Dollar Tree excelsior at the bottom of the sign. Get the excelsior as securely attached to the sign as you can without making it clumpy from the hot glue.
Once the excelsior is in place, you’re going to hot glue your decoupaged eggs on top of it, and you’re all done making a super cute DIY Dollar Tree Easter decor with decoupaged eggs!
