Just a few days from now, Easter is celebrated around the world; and what is one of its most known tradition? Eggs! Many cultures decorate the eggs for Easter – paint them, dye them, use hot wax to ’emboss’ intricate designs… So many different ways to make the eggs colourful and pretty…
How about using tissue paper? You can use this thin printed paper to can decorate almost every surface and with Canvas Corp’s tissue stock, the printed designs give an amazing result!
With the above ideas in mind, our Crew member, Kyriakos Pachadiroglou, shares with us his decorated Easter eggs that are easy and very quick to make.
“Decoupage with tissue paper from Canvas Corp was an easy way to cover the styrofoam eggs, while having a pattern on them – this result is quite diffucult to achieve with any other techique. You can embellish the eggs to match your style instead of using the burlap fringe and the cameos, like I did.” – says Kyriakos.

Step 1 – Cut the tissue paper into large pieces and glue on the styrofoam eggs. Try to adjust it in a way that patterns match nicely on the main surface of the egg.
Step 2 – Cut the burlap fringe in half at the long side; the steps need to be long enough to wrap around the middle of the egg.
Step 3 – Glue the burlap fringe on the eggs. If you want to add color on the eggs, do it before glueing the burlap fringe.
This is quite an easy project for anyone… and what a stylish outcome! You could use them as a fun Easter project to work on with the whole family and add a nice seasonal touch to your home.
