DIY Felt Easter Eggs

I have been SO excited to show you all my latest Easter project!!!!!! As I mentioned two weeks ago when we did our Saturday Spotlight on The Felt Pod, I had ordered these huge felt balls to do a fun little project!   I have to say, that I had no idea if this would work, or how I was going to turn these balls into colorful Easter eggs....but I was convinced that I could make it work.

Loving the bright and fun colors! I might even turn the eggs back into round balls after Easter and just fill up vases around my house to add a fun burst of color! 


Here is how I turned the felt balls into these super cute and festive eggs....

*I soaked them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. (they float, so I had to put a plate over them to weigh them down) I placed all of the colors in one bowl and had zero problem with them bleeding into each other.

*I just rolled them on the counter only pushing on one side until they formed into eggs (do not do this on anything fabric, the colors will bleed out once you squeeze them

*They did take a while to dry, and I let them sit on a cookie cooling rack for two days just to get all of the water out so that they did not bleed color once I placed them around the house. 

When I ordered them, I was hoping to get just pastel balls, but I have to say that I am loving the bright, unexpected colors of the eggs around my house! 

I have a fun kid craft that we are going to work on over the next week, so I will post pictures of them soon.  Don't forget to use coupon code "10percentballs" thru 4/21 to receive 10% off of your purchase at The Felt Pod.
