A Herd of Eggimals | Easter Egg Decorating

A Herd of Eggimals

After they've given up all their Easter candy, give your plastic eggs an adorable second life as an owl, skunk, dog, cat, pig, or mouse.

Materials

  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Tiny pom-poms
  • Felt
  • Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue or hot glue
  • Black permanent marker

Instructions

To make the felt features for your critters, you can download our template. We used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue (hot glue also works well) to attach the pieces to the eggs and a black permanent marker to draw the face details.

Pig: Curl a 4-inch piece of pipe cleaner around a pen to make the tail, then glue it in place.

Mouse: For its tail, glue on a 3-inch length of yarn, knotted at the end.

Skunk: First glue the rear half of the stripe to the tail, then glue the tail and front of the stripe to the body.
