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.
- Styrofoam eggs approx. 4x3 inches
- small print pastel fabric cut in assorted sizes (see photo)
- matching 1/4 inch wide ribbon about 1/2 yard
- 1 inch pearl headed pins
- a butter knife
- cool temp glue gun and stick
- Using the butter knife poke each piece of fabric into the Styrofoam egg coming close to the edge of the fabric, but not too close. Tuck the edges in firmly.
- Do this randomly all over the egg. This creates the "quilted" look.
- When egg is completely covered stick a pearl pin in the center of each "quilt".
- Using the ribbon, make loops, leaving one loop longer for hanging.
- Hot glue the loops to the top of the egg centering so the longer loop is in the center.
I made 6 all of different pastel prints.
