You can choose any poem you wish…I selected “Le Printemps” (which means springtime, in case you’ve never taken French).  A script font gives it a classic look.  Print several copies (about one per egg) of the poem.  Then cut each line of the poem into strips.

Using a paintbrush, apply the mod podge to the egg.  Place a strip of the poem on top of it. Press it into place, making sure it is as smooth as possible.  Then brush another thin layer of mod podge on top of the paper.

Continue applying the strips of the poem until the egg is covered.  It is fine to overlap some of the strips of paper.

Place the egg on waxed paper and allow to dry.  Repeat with as many eggs as you would like.
