Easter Felting Anyone?

frida-easter-2014

The easter bunny will be hop, hop, hoppin’ along before you know. Why not have a little easter fun with the kids and make your own felted easter eggs. Both wet and needle felting, depending upon your preference, work great for this project.

Although we don’t have a specific kit, they’re super easy. And I’ve got a tip to make it a little more cost effective. Start with some inexpensive undyed wool to make your basic egg shape and use colored fleece only for the outer layer. For the eggs pictured above I used  [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock]  for the core and [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock]  for the final outer color. With 6 oz of 21 colors, the Rainbow batting pack gives you lots of color possibilities for your eggs. As for the natural wool used for the core, plan on 3 oz to make approximately one dozen eggs. I used a 4 - 38 gauge 3 barb Triangular Felting Needles for needling. Decorating/needling is great fun – solid, marbled, add a motif or a child’s initial, oh the possibilities.
