When my team and I were brainstorming projects for Easter, we of course came up with tons of Easter egg crafts. And this project stood out as extra cute! Make your own felt Easter eggs for your Easter egg hunt, as a gift topper for an Easter basket, or display them around the house for some adorable party decor.
All you will need for these Easter eggs is felt, embroidery floss, and some poly-fill. We went with a pastel color scheme for our eggs, but you can choose any color combinations that you like for your decor. Choose your felt colors and then pick out some matching embroidery floss at your local fabric store. Print the PDF template below and cut out the shapes to use as a guide for cutting your felt. Once you have your felt pieces ready, you can begin your stitching. Use a simple blanket stitch to attach the pieces together. Make color blocked easter eggs, or add stripes and polka dots for fun patterned ornaments! If you want to use these felt eggs as ornaments, simply add an extra loop of embroidery floss. How cute would it be to hang these ornaments in the trees of your backyard to decorate your Easter egg hunt?
If you are planning an Easter egg hunt this year, you will want to make sure that all of the little ones have their own baskets for gathering the eggs. You can make your own DIY baskets by following this tutorial for this simple upcycling project using brown paper grocery bags! Use them for the hunt, or to create an Easter egg arrangement like we have here. There are so many possibilities with these simple felt eggs!
