A Super Easy Fun Easter Craft to do with the kids.
All you need are: Fabric Scraps, school glue, bowl, wax paper, or aluminum foil (I was out of wax paper), paper towels (lots of them) and plastic eggs. I used the larger eggs.
I diluted the glue with 50% warm water and 50% glue, and stirred really well.
Gather all your fabric scraps.. any shape or size will do.. No fabric at home? Well how about a shirt or skirt you were going to give to Goodwill? Use that.
Cut your fabric into small strips, about the size of your pointer finger. I also did squares the size of quarters and really any shape will work.. just have fun cutting.. but make sure you CUT BEFORE you start.
Lay your fabric down into the glue mixture and get it wet.
Take your fingers and remove the excess mixture.. after this you can easily just rub the egg with the glue mixture and then just spread the fabric on and dip your fingers in the glue and rub on the egg.. It is FUN!
Smooth the wet fabric onto the egg and don't worry if it is not perfect.. That is all part of the fun. And don't mind my really old lady hands!
Start over lapping your fabric.. You will see this egg I used was yellow.. This was my first one. If you don't want the color to show through, keep layering. Once dry, it really does not show up.
Your egg when done will look like this..
Lay them all out to dry over night.
And when finished and dried, you will have a great assortment of fabric eggs to use for years.
