Felted Easter Eggs

With Easter just around the corner, we figured it was time to get going with making some fun decorations. This project was found in the book Quick And Clever Felting and it really couldn't be easier! With a few basic felting tools, you can have some pretty eggs in no time!

What you need:
  • Styrofoam eggs
  • wool roving
  • fine point marker
  • felting needles (we used a tool that had 3 needles)
First, wrap a piece of roving around the middle of your egg and jab it repeatedly with your needles until it begins to felt to the foam. Add more roving to spots that seem a bit sparse as you see fit.

Once that section is completed, add more roving to completely cover the rest of your egg and continue jabbing until your wool is adhering nicely and your egg is taking on a firmer texture.

When your egg is finished, you can leave it plain (where's the fun in that?) or start thinking about decorating it! Using your fine point marker, draw a design on your felted egg.

Then add thin sections of wool in complimentary colors using the design you drew as a guide, being sure to jab it with your needles to secure it to your egg.

Once that is done and you are happy with the results, you can make a few more to display in a bowl or clear vase...

or attach ribbons and make hanging ornaments...

or even make hanging decorations for your door!
You can be as creative as you want! Happy Easter!
