Egg Door Decoration Tutorial


My niece, Michele, and I made these Easter egg door decorations when we visited my sister in Pennsylvania.

Michele made the pattern for the large egg.
430aacc
We used cardboard from a new cardboard box which I bought to give the door decoration a stiff background.
429aacc
Michele cut out the egg  shape from the cardboard with a utility knife.
435aacc
We covered the cardboard egg with polyester batting using hot glue to give it a softer rounder look.
436aacc
Then we covered the egg with fabric also using hot glue to adhere the fabric to the cardboard.  Here are some of the fabrics we used.
438aacc
441aacc
Michele chose a brighter pink than I did. Oh, I definitely like hers better. We made four altogether. One for Carol, Mom, Michele, and me.  Here Michele is making the pocket with a coordinating fabric. At this point - before I glued the back down - I filled the "egg" with polyfil to round it out a bit.
573aacc
Here is the one we made for Mom in softer colors. See the pocket?
575aacc
This is Michele’s bright one.
553aacc
Here’s the back. I glued felt and a ribbon hanger on the back.
554aacc
Isn’t this pretty? I love these soft roses. This is Mom’s. Love these soft roses.
564aacc
Here is the one we made for Carol.

We’re really happy the way the Egg Door Decorations turned out and I hope everyone enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for visiting.
Best wishes, Linda

  36. Hi! I have a question: haow did you give the egg the round look? Because when you attached the fabrics it seems flat in the pictures, and then it seems round. Did you fill it with anything?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow.. Now this is a unique idea.. Love the possibilities..
    Thanks for linking up at friday fun party
