The lack of cheap, plastic Easter eggs in India gave me a good excuse to sew up some fun, fabric Easter eggs this year! I sewed these eggs by hand from scraps of fabric I had lying around from other projects, and stuffed the with polyfill I also already had, so this Easter craft was basically free!
Here are the fabric eggs I made last Easter. The eggs look a lot better when sewn on a sewing machine!
When the kids aren’t playing with the eggs, or having pretend Easter egg hunts, they are displayed in a recycled bird’s nest we made. A fun homemade Easter decoration and toy in one!
I knew I saw this recycled bird’s nest craft somewhere online, but I couldn’t remember where until after we tried it. We glued strips of a recycled paper bag onto the top of a balloon, then popped the balloon when it dried. I recommend trying the plastic wrap method shown at Alpha Mom because, I had to peel the balloon pieces off the inside of our bird’s nest.
