Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Wrap a rubber band around an egg of Styrofoam lengthwise to divide in half equally. Trace to the rubber band with the Black marker. Wrap the other rubber band around the egg lengthwise dividing the egg into quarters and trace next to rubber band. Remove the rubber bands; you should have four equal sections traced on the egg. Repeat for all eggs.
  • 2
    Cut pieces of craft batting that are 1/4 inch smaller than the traced section of the egg and glue the pieces, centered, in each of the four sections of each egg.
  • 3
    Cut pieces of fabric that is 1/2 inch larger than the sections on the eggs. Use two coordinating fabrics on each egg or keep all four sections the same. Lay a piece of fabric over the batting centered in the section. Use the metal nail file to begin tucking the fabric edges into the egg, along the traced line. Keep the fabric centered by alternating from side to side as you work around the section. Repeat, tucking the fabric in the next section into the groove created from the first section to completely cover the egg.
  • 4
    Tie a small bow and attach to the top of each egg using low-temp glue and glue sticks.
