Easter Crafts are always just at the right time. Just when we are sick of the cold, drab winter, here comes a colorful holiday to cheer us up. Like this Spanish Moss Bird Nest, Making an Easter Tree, and making an Easter Bunny Easter Basket

Many years ago, while shopping, I noticed all the beautiful egg displays. I couldn’t splurge on the pretty table accessories, but I thought they could still inspire a more economical version and craft idea. So, thinking back to the beautiful pumpkins we made out of toilet paper rolls last fall – I thought, why couldn’t we make an egg version? What’s taller than toilet paper but has the same form? That’s when I thought of using a paper towel as my base for an Easter Egg.

Supplies You’ll Need

  • A Roll of Paper Towel – You’ll have to sacrifice an entire roll of paper towel for this Easter Egg Craft
  • Quilter’s Batting, or fiber fill. Or, something similar to give the paper towel some extra fluff.
  • Fabric Glue – I use a glue called Fabri-Tac. It holds pretty quickly, and it also holds up well.
  • A piece of Easter Fabric – or pastel fabric – about four feet x four feet. Polka Dots would be so cute.
  • Wide, colorful ribbon – This will be to hide the seams and also make a bow for the top.

Instructions

  • Cut the batting or fiberfill so it’s tall enough to cover the length of your paper towel and wide enough to wrap around it at least once.
  • Add a little extra to the top of the paper towel to add some cushion on top and give it that egg-shape
  • Glue to secure

  • Cut your fabric into three egg-shaped pieces that, when pieced together, will cover your paper towel from top to bottom and will also cover it in circumference. My pieces are about fifteen inches tall and nine inches wide at the bottom. They are six inches wide at the top.
  • Note – your measurements might not be the same as mine. Paper towels come in different sizes and shapes, and your filler might be thicker than mine, so measure your paper towel base to be sure.

  • Start gluing your three pieces of fabric over your paper towel, overlapping them all of the way around the paper towel and batting.
  • Cut one more circular piece of fabric to cover the bottom of the paper towel and glue it.

  • Measure your seams and cut the wide ribbon to match the length from the center/top of your egg – going a couple of inches past the bottom so you can pull it tight and adjust it.
  • Glue the ribbon over the seams.

  • You can adjust your egg by pulling the ribbon tighter at the top or the bottom and giving it slack in others to tighten or loosen the fabric.
  • Make a bow with some of your ribbon to cover the top.
