Painting eggs is a classic Easter activity for kids. Of course it’s fun for adults too! But as an adult, you may also be interested in using Easter eggs as home decor. For example, we once created these Easter egg place cards. And another year, we made these painted tissue decoupage eggs.

We have been trying to move away from using foam eggs in the studio, though. So for our strawberry and carrot Easter eggs, we used spun cotton eggs. This is the first time we have used spun cotton eggs and we are happy to report that they are very easy to paint!

Ready to craft your own carrot and strawberry Easter eggs? Just follow our simple tutorial below. If your kids are joining in on the fun, we would love to see what paint colors they chose and how they designed their Easter eggs! Remember you can always email pictures to us at Or you can message us photos on Instagram and Facebook.

How to Make Carrot and Strawberry Easter Eggs

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern at the end of this post.
  2. Paint eggs entirely with one color. Then add details with a small paint brush.
  3. Cut felt toppers according to pattern notes, using scissors or a cutting machine.
  4. Using hot glue, attach the two sizes of carrot topper to the large end of the carrot egg. Push the center into the egg slightly so that the felt toppers stand up.
