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 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.
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!
