How to Make Wool Felted Easter Eggs

 

Happy Spring, Friends!

Felted eggs aren’t just for Easter. A bowl full of colorful felted wool eggs also makes a beautiful centerpiece or decoration for the home. Wool eggs also make a great addition to a nature table, a child’s play kitchen, and are fun for market play.

Are you an experienced felter? Have any tips to add? If you’ve never wet felted before, are you inspired to try?

    I am still struggling to download these on a Sunday night to watch as my after-bedtime-treat. I will have to give it a go on a Monday morning.
    Just wanted to say how refreshing it was to hear a kindergarten teacher admit to occasionally using Plastic!
    Thank you for a wonderful resource.

    I see plenty of those used plastic eggs at thrift stores!! What a great way to up cycle a plastic egg instead of buying them new! Lovin’ Sunday’s with Sarah! I look forward to them! Please keep ‘em coming!

      Thanks, Marias. Please let me know if there are any topics you’d like to hear me discuss in future posts.

    Thank you for the great tutorial. Having tried a few eggs before seeing this, I now realise I need to spend more time at the gentle smoothing etc stage before progressing to rubbing.

    Good morning, Sarah. I always love watching your videos. I’ve included a link to this video on Wee Folk Art’s Facebook page. Thanks for all you lovely videos!

    when doing this with children I help them put the egg in a bit of nylon stocking. Once the outside is initially felted we take it out and they can finish the usual way. Even very small children have success this way.

      Great idea, Johanna! Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks for the wonderful craft videos. I know Waldorf teachers often have a song or a story with a craft activity. My 2 and 4 year olds love hearing me retell about “tippy brush” when we watercolor (which I heard on your watercolor video). I’d love more story ideas to go along with the different work and crafts.

    This is so cool! Do you have any tips for doing this project with special needs kids? We’re definitely going to use a plastic egg as a base, but do you have any other advice? Any help would be fantastic! :)
