Supplies for Pressed Pansy Eggs

You can make these with brown hardboiled eggs like I did. Or you can use white eggs and dye them before adding flowers if you like. You can even use craft eggs like wood or paper mache to make beautiful eggs that you can keep forever!

  • Hardboiled brown eggs or white eggs (or paper mache or wood craft eggs)
  • Pansies (or other small thin flower)
  • Mod Podge (I used Glossy Mod Podge to add a sheen to my eggs)
  • Foam brush

How to Make Pressed Flower Easter Eggs

1. Press flowers for 3 weeks

This craft requires a little planning ahead. You’ll want to press your pansies between wax paper or paper towels for several weeks so they are completely dry before you add them to the flowers. Place between the pages of a thick book and stack more heavy books on top to ensure a good pressed flower!

2. Apply coat of Mod Podge to eggs

Use a foam brush to apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the egg where you plan to place the flower.

3. Carefully press flower to egg

Carefully place the flower on top of the Mod Podge and smooth onto the egg.

4. Seal with more Mod Podge

Add a layer of Mod Podge on top of the flower to seal it. You can spread the Mod Podge around the egg to provide a consistent sheen, especially if you are using glossy Mod Podge. Let dry completely.

The beautiful flower will reveal itself as the Mod Podge dries!
