Last week I met my craft club friends for an evening of Easter egg painting. It was a really chilled evening and we all went home clutching an Easter tree (branches in a tall vase) and half a dozen painted Easter eggs. I think my tree looks really quite sweet, so I decided to make some Felt Easter Egg Decorations to go on it too.
The Felt Easter Egg Decorations are really simple to make and you can decorate them however you want. They’re fun to make for children and adults, my son was especially interested in using my hot glue gun, but you can use PVA and patience if you don’t have a glue gun.
How to make Felt Easter Egg Decorations
You will need:
Egg shaped template on card
Needle and thread
A hot glue gun or PVA glue
Decorations such as sequins, stars, gems, or whatever you have
How to make your Felt Easter Egg Decorations:
Firstly, make your egg shape template. I did this by drawing around a small glass to make a circle, then sketching the circle into an egg shape. You can easily print off an egg shape off the internet if that’s easier. Copy the shape onto card, cut it out and you’ve got a durable egg shaped template for any future egg based craft projects.
With a pencil, draw around the egg shape onto some coloured felt and carefully cut it out with a pair of scissors. Take about 6cm of ribbon and fold it in half length-ways. With the needle and thread, sew the ends together and stitch it to the back of your felt Easter egg. It doesn’t much matter if you can see the stitches, you can always stick a decoration or two over the top, like I have done.
Once your ribbon loop is securely stitched, you can decorate your egg. I have quite a decent selection of random things like sequins, stars, gems and other decorations. Using the hot glue gun we decided what would look good where, and glued them on. If you don’t have a hot glue gun, a dab of PVA glue should stick things perfectly well to the felt Easter egg, although you will need to leave the glue to dry for an hour or so.
I think our felt eggs are really sweet looking and they look lovely on our Easter tree! How would you decorate yours?
