Easter egg flower craft for Parents magazine

This is probably the craft I loved creating the most for the Parents magazine “Crafty Easter Tabletop Ideas” article. These DIY felt and Easter egg flowers are so simple, the kids can help and you can color coordinate them to any Easter color palette!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Egg
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Craft paint
  • Hot glue
  • Lollipop sticks

Easy steps:

  1. Hollow out your eggs and wash gently (see the pictorial in yesterday’s post about the mommy bird egg).
  2. Let the kids finger paint the eggs and set them to dry on lollipop sticks. (You can also paint the lollipop stick to look like a stem if you want to display in grass or moss!)
  3. Cut petals out of felt.
  4. Hot glue petals to the base of the egg (near the larger hole) and display on lollipop sticks.

press: Easter ideas for Parents magazine

I couldn’t be more thrilled and feel more blessed to finally share that I wrote a contributing article for Parents magazine, titled Crafty Easter Tabletop Ideas. It’s currently the first idea listed under Easter parties on parents.com {still reeling from excitement}!

I would LOVE for you to hop over, scroll through the article and if you like what you see, click the facebook “like” button for me, or if you’re a parents.com member, leave a comment! And if you do, please let me know and I’ll send huge virtual hugs your way! Oh, and did I mention there is a FREE PRINTABLE in it for you? Yep! You didn’t think this was going to be all about me did you?!

The article includes a colorful Easter placesetting idea, two easy Easter craft ideas, a fun Easter treat idea and three FREE printable sheets.

And here are a few images to go with the “how to” steps listed for that cute little mommy “egg” bird in the feature image. By the way, step 1, hollowing out the egg, is actually pretty easy. You just pearce both ends with a needle, making one end large enough to put a lollipop stick in. Whirl the stick around a bit to break up the egg yolk and it will come right out. As the final step, wash the egg throughly, and gently, with anti-bacterial soap and allow it to dry before letting the kids finger paint the body.  

I’ll be sharing more images and details for the other crafts and ideas tomorrow.

As always, I hope you’re inspired and thank you so much for supporting me and my dream. You all make my heart sing every day with your follows, likes, tweets and sweet comments! I couldn’t ask for a better support system!
