Step 1: Gently wipe away any imperfections from the eggshell.  This will ensure that all of the elements adhere to the egg properly.  You cook your egg if you want- I suggest boiling them and your guests can eat them later if they choose to.

Step 2:

Either cut or tear strips of tissue paper.  I prefer tearing because it gives the eggs an imperfect look.  If you want sharper, cleaner edges, use scissors and create fun shapes.  Don’t make the shapes too large or complicated, as you want them to be able to lay somewhat flat with minimal wrinkles.

Step 3:

Paint a thin layer of ModPodge onto the egg.  Place a strip of tissue paper onto the egg and cover it with another thin layer of ModPodge.  Smooth it out with the spongebrush or with your fingers to help it adhere.  This will start to get a bit messy, so be sure to keep a towel or wet rag nearby for easy cleanup.
