Get “egg-cited” for Easter with this fun, easy DIY project!
For many, decorating Easter eggs is a family tradition. But if you dread the messy dyes that accompany the craft, these fabric-covered eggs are a great alternative. Plus, there’s no need to waste a good egg in the making, and you can reuse your creations next year.
So let’s hop to it!
How to Make Fabric Covered Easter Eggs
What you’ll need:
- Mod podge or glue
- A paintbrush
- Measuring tape
- Fabric scraps
- Styrofoam or plastic eggs
Measure the height and circumference of the egg.
Use these measurements to cut a rectangle of fabric.
Cut slits along both sides, making sure to leave about ½" to 1" in the middle, depending on size. Cut the end of each strip into a point.
Apply mod podge to the uncut area using a paintbrush. Wrap the fabric around the egg with the points facing outwards. Apply mod podge to the slits and press them down. Let dry.
Decorate your home with festive fabric covered eggs and enjoy!
Happy Easter Long Weekend!
Whether you’re crafting or relaxing, we hope you have a wonderful Easter long weekend!
If you do decide to tackle some fabric-covered eggs, don’t be afraid to get creative. Regular printed paper and "washi” paper would work well for these too. Or you could mix things up and try a combo of both.
When you’re all done, add your eggs to a glass vase and place on the mantel, use as a centerpiece, or scatter around your home for a chocolate-free egg hunt!
