Decorate Easter Egg: Wool Egg

This Wool Easter Egg looks adorable and homey! It’s quite easy to make; the only tricky part is keeping the wool on the glue as you wind it around the egg. For younger children, I would do the wool part, and allow it to dry before giving it to the child to decorate. I used a foam egg because it’s light and sits up well but decorating a hard boiled egg with wool works too.


Foam Egg

Wool (your choice of colour). I used pastel rainbow wool for this tutorial.

1. Cover egg with glue.

2. Starting from the base of the egg, lay the wool in a spiral, continuing down the egg until it’s covered.
