Felted Easter Eggs


The girls and I had so much fun making these CUTE felted Easter eggs! To make your own, you will need some wool roving. If you have trouble finding wool roving, you can purchase it online here.

Start by filling a pitcher with some very warm water, and add a few tablespoons of dish soap.

Stir up the water in the pitcher until the soap is well-combined.
With a small amount of wool roving, get it wet and start rolling it into a ball in the palm of your hand. Clara was eager to keep up with her big sister, and with just a tiny bit of help from Emily, she was able to make a few eggs of her own.
Add more wool roving, bit by bit, until the egg is the desired size. Add stripes or dots to your eggs, make them multi-colored! Go CRAZY with your wild egg designs!
Once your felted ball is the right size, gently shape it into an egg shape.
Wow!! This is so much fun!!!
I see some felted Easter egg hunts in our future!
So pretty! Added bonus — kids with clean hands!

  2. Dear Valerie,

    I find similar things in the trash can in the laundry room. Please tell me that the laundry room has not been usurped as well!

    Love,
    Mark

    Very pretty!

  4. So sweet! I love the colors!

  5. They look so pretty. Great pictures of the girls too! I'll have to find some wool roving. I don't even think I have ever heard of it except on your blog. Did you do something else with wool roving recently?

  6. I've been dying to try felting, and your post makes me want to try it even more! One of the main things that has prevented me from getting started is that I have no clue how much roving to buy. Would you mind sharing approximately how much roving you needed to make your eggs? Thanks so much! Your eggs turned out beautifully, and Clara is looking so adorable and grown up these days!

    Wow! Wat to go Clara! I am impressed :-)

    @ Mommy Moment — How cool! I can't wait to see!

    @ Christy — We made felted ornaments for Christmas with wool roving. I love it because both of the girls really enjoy working with it, and it's so relaxing to do. I found several different colors at JoAnn's near the yarn section.

  9. Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog says:

    @ Chelsea — We used three small bags of roving. I think each bag contained 1 or 2 oz. and we had PLENTY left over for many other projects. Hope this helps! It's a lot of fun!

    They came out so nice! We might have to get some wool rovings in the future. I did not know you were homeschoolers too! It is nice, the flexibility but what's even more wonderful is the time we get to spend with our children! Your girls have the most wonderful smiles…they look like they come from inside out!

    Interesting – I saw these things on other blogs, but was always wondering what they are made of. Now I know :) It looks like girls were really into it – Clara did great!

  12. I've been wanting to make some felted balls and thought about eggs (but clearly I'm running out of time now). I made my first felted anything last week when I used wool yarn to make peas for M's princess and the pea playset. It is so fun I cannot wait to try it with the kids.

  13. Note to self: Put wool roving on shopping list!

    Too cute, I've been seeing many projects with the wool roving around. At first glance I thought you were putting it in a blender and my brain said…"I gotta see this!". LOL

    I like the look of these even better than regular dyed eggs.

  14. What beautiful eggs. I love the colours you've used. Perfect for easter eggs.

  15. Basbusa's Mama says:

    You have some of the cutest and most photogenic kids in the history of the world :) Glad they had such fun, and the eggs are adorable!

  16. JDaniel4's Mom says:

    Thanks for stopping by! The eggs look great!

  17. Wool felted stuff always look so cool.

  18. I love all the enthusiasm in Clara's expression!

  19. Those turned out so cute!! I will have to save this to do for next year!

  20. Just Breathe says:

    They turned out so pretty. Look like the girls had allot of fun.
    Have a blessed Easter.

    @ Ricki — Hahaha! Now you've got me thinking of a fun project we could do involving a blender… Hmmm… LOL

    @ Basbusa's Mama — Thank you! I can't take any credit for that…..They seem to have inherited Mark's good looks. ;-)

  22. Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog says:

    @ maryanne — I wish you could have been here. Clara was squealing with delight!! So much fun!

  23. (V.Kerr) School Time Adventures says:

    I recently have been inspired by Waldorf crafts and all the felting they do to create beautiful things. Now I know how to start.. thanks for posting this!

  24. I love these!

    The wool I found was so expensive. Not a cheap kid project unless you have the stuff on hand. We tried it out, but i wasn't sure that we were doing it right. It just seemed to get matted. They were pretty, but didn't stay together when they were handled at all.
