egg hunt: roses.

Yay! You found the first of my hidden Easter egg crafts! For this Easter egg, I was going for tulips, but couldn’t get the petals to sit right on the shape of egg, so I went with more of a rose look, sans thorns.

For this craft you will need:

  • Plastic eggs
  • Felt in rose colors of choice plus green
  • Floral wire
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Pliers x2 (optional)

Cut rose petal shapes; you’ll need between 12-18 petals for each egg, depending on the size of the egg and how far apart you decide to space your petals. Petals for each egg should be about the height of your eggs; they don’t need to be exactly the same size.

Begin gluing petals to the top half of the egg with a little petal overhang onto the bottom half of the egg. Add a line of glue to the petal and attach to the egg. Make sure glue only touches the top half of the egg or else the egg will get glued shut. Keep adding a row petals around the egg, slightly overlapping the petals.

Add a second row of petals to the bottom half of the egg. Similarly, make sure the glue only touches the egg, and not the first row of petals, or else you will glue the egg shut.

Next, since I used wire strips I folded them in half and twisted the halves together to create a sturdier stem. Use the pliers to assist. Cut strips of green felt and wrap around the wire, sealing ends with hot glue. Bend one end; this will be glued to the bottom of the egg flower.

Cut circles out of green felt and cut a slit in the middle. After glueing the stem to the egg flower, secure the green circle to the base of the egg with hot glue. This will give extra support for the stem and it will cover up the egg base.

And there you have it – a bouquet of Easer egg flowers. Now all that’s left to do is fill with your favorite treats! More Easter eggs ideas here.
