This fun craft is ideal for your Easter decoration. It looks like a quilted egg, but really is fabric pushed into a Styrofoam egg. They can be hung on an Easter tree or anywhere in your home.
Approximate Time: about 40 minutes.
I made 6 all of different pastel prints.

What a fantastic idea! With the price of eggs, and most people throw them out afterward, this is crafty and green at the same time!
Cute idea! How much fabric do you cut for each egg? Do you use a template? Thanks in advance.
I remember making these as a child, but they were Christmas ornaments. We used styrofoam balls. A few tips to add: we used nail cuticle sticks (they're wood sticks with a slanted tip on one end & a pointed tip on the other) to push the fabric in. Insert a paper clip into the top to act as a hook. There is really no set size or template to use. Just random squares or other shapes of fabric. I've seen some pretty intricate ones that actually formed a design though. Draw on the styrafoam and follow the pattern if you want. This is a great, inexpensive way to use up scrap fabric or clothes you would have otherwise thrown out.
