egg hunt: zinnias.

Here’s my last Easter egg design for the year! Complete your plant trio with zinnia Easter eggs.

For this craft you will need:

  • Plastic eggs
  • Felt in colors of choice (I went with warm tones)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot glue

Unlike the last two in this egg series, this flower requires strips of petals. Cut out 3-6 strips (the more you use, the fuller your flower!). For the center, cut fringe into two small rectangular pieces of felt. Roll the inner piece and seal with hot glue. Roll and glue the outer piece onto the inner piece. Glue to the top of the egg.

Glue the petal strips onto the egg. Wrap each row with two layers of petals to get a fuller flower. Glue petals first to the top half of the egg. Then glue petals to the bottom half of the egg. Make sure petals don’t get attached to both the top and bottom halves of the egg so you can still open it.

I like to keep the base bare so the flower egg can stand on its own.

Zinnias!

All together now! Check out the full DIY for Easter egg roses and succulents, too!

Happy Easter egg making and hunting!
