Hello ladies!! It's Jessica again from Color Overboard! Since Kaitlyn is still on maternity leave, I am here to supply your luvvly DIY fix. Today I am going to share how to make these super cute Easter egg pouches! I am making these as an alternative to plastic eggs and I am going to hand them out to my coworkers.
Hot glue gun
Accessories I used:
Felt "lace" ribbon
Start off by cutting an egg shape out of the felt. I cut free-handed but remember that it's not an exact science, so don't stress to make it perfect.
After you get your first egg cut out, cut another out the same size. Then, cut about 1/3 of the top of the egg off. This will be the back of your egg pouch.
Decorate the front egg shape however you would like. To decorate you can use anything like ribbons and sequins, or you can even make little felt rosettes! After you finish decorating, hot glue the back of the egg pouch onto the back of the front. Make sure to leave an opening at the top so you don't close off your pouch! I used glue because this is just a quick project to give a personal touch to my Easter handouts. If you would like to make a more durable egg you could use an embroidery needle and embroidery thread.
To make the flowers, cut different sized circles out of felt.
Next, cut the circles into spirals as shown in the photo below. You can trim the edges if they are too uneven for you!
Starting with the outer end, begin to roll your flower until you run out of felt. Put a drop of glue at the other end and secure your flower.
Now add rosettes to your beautiful eggs for a luvvly spring, finish!
After your eggs are done, fill your creations with candy, lip balm, or what ever small gift you would like. It will take you no time and your friends will be so happy to receive a hand-made gift from you.
I hope you enjoyed the project. Let me know what you think and feel free to keep following my DIY Posts at Color Overboard.
With lots of love
