I adore the vintage prints designer Rebekah Meier used to create these fabric eggs. I have some fabrics in my stash that would be perfect for these Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs. And that’s one of the reasons why I like these DIY Easter Eggs – they easily adapt to your favorite fabrics. The technique is easy, too, so this is an Easter craft the kids would enjoy. Especially if they get to select their own fabrics!
To make Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: Three, 3” eggs; block or scrap piece
- Fabric, ¼ yd. each of three coordinating colors
- Ribbon, two yds. in cream
- Flowers, three
- Pearl head pins, three
- Mod Podge, matte finish
- Thick white craft glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; wood skewers or chopsticks; ruler; foam paintbrush; optional: rotary cutter and mat
To make Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs:
1. Using scissors and a ruler, or the optional rotary cutter and mat, cut fabrics into ¼” strips.
2. Insert a wood skewer or chopstick into the wide end of each egg to use as a handle.
3. Load paintbrush with Mod Podge and apply liberally and evenly on an egg. Randomly wind a fabric strip around the egg. Repeat with additional fabric strips till egg is completely covered. Wrap remaining eggs in the same manner.
4. Topcoat eggs with Mod Podge. Insert the skewers or chopsticks into the block or scrap of STYROFOAM Brand Foam to hold the eggs upright while they dry.
5. Wrap a ribbon around each egg and tie into a bow. Secure with glue. Pin a flower to the center of each bow.
Here’s another, classic technique for making fabric-covered Easter eggs. Again, the beauty is in making it your own with your own fabric selections.
You can also repurpose an old T-shirt to make Fabric Easter Eggs, like these Tie-Dye Easter Eggs.
The Eggstravaganza isn’t over yet! I hope you’ll continue on this creative journey with me. That’s a little a hint about tomorrow’s eggs. Any guesses what they’ll be?
