Felt and ribbon Easter egg ornaments

Hello, and welcome. 

Last weekend we were busy decorating for Easter. To keep the kids entertained and minimize the mess, I decided we could make Easter egg ornaments to hang around the house.

These are very easy to make and everyone can have fun. All you need are felt egg shapes (felt scraps are great for this, but if you don't have felt you can use cardboard instead) and bits of ribbon and ric-rac. I used my Sizzix and an oval die-cut to get the felt egg shapes, but a cookie cutter or even a shape printed off the net work just as well.

So, all you need to do is to glue the ribbon and ric-rac onto the felt egg shapes in any way you want, and then trim the excess ribbon.

Make as many as you want:

After that, punch a hole at the top (or use eyelets like I did) and add an additional piece of ribbon for hanging.

  6. What a great idea! My kids are allergic to artificial food coloring, so we haven't dyed eggs in a few years (natural dying is so time consuming), they would probably enjoy doing this! Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

    1. I'm not a fan of dying eggs either, it's just too messy, so this was a nice compromise. And besides, it's something we can use again in years to come.
