Easter Paper Decoupage Bowls

Easy Easter Craft: Create these simple paper bowls for Easter

I’ve made decoupage bowls before and I’ve always found it a pretty messy craft. I came across this technique recently for creating little paper birds nests without ending up with glue covered hands and decided to try it out with Jenna. We made a bird nest (using long strips of paper) first, and then I tried making a couple with paper punch circles. Both were very easy and turned out super cute.

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Cut decorative paper into narrow strips or use a paper punch to create small circles.
  2. Mix glue and water (2/3 glue to 1/3 water) and paint the inside of a small bowl.
  3. Cover the inside of the bowl with plastic wrap and paint another layer of glue over the plastic wrap.
  4. Add a layer of paper, starting at the bottom and working your way up the side of the bowl. Use a paint brush to gently coat the paper with glue as you go. You can add a second layer and additional coats of glue for a sturdier bowl.
  5. Let the paper dry in the bowl for several hours. Once the inside is dry, lift it out of the bowl and remove the plastic wrap. Turn the bowl upside down and let dry completely.

  1. I enjoy Easter and Spring decorating ideas. The bird nests and Easter bowls are so cute.
    I also loved her idea of making Geometric Bird Garland. Makes me desire to get out my
    Easter Decorations and make a few bowls to fill with goodies. In St. Louis at “Merb’s Chocolate
    Shop” they make all their rabbits from 12 or more molds and they gave each bunny a name.
    Bad news they don’t ship their products. St. Louis, here we come! -Memory Lane…No, they’re
    located at several locations. We shopped at the Grand Ave. store.

    • My childhood favorite is the sugar eggs with a hole cut out so you could look inside and see a little Easter scene. And I also remember when you taught us how to make cascarone’s. Might have to do that with Jason and Jenna soon.
