So here ya go!
Homespun or cotton fabric
Egg shape (can be plastic, paper mache, styrofoam, etc)
Tea or coffee to distress.
I like to rip my fabric because I like the unfinished “raggy” look you get.
Make a small cut about ½ inch in on the edge of your fabric and tear the strip off. If you have a very long piece then you probably only need one if you have shorter pieces of fabric you can cut as many as you need to cover the egg shape.
Start at the “fat end” of the egg. Apply a tiny bit of hot glue to the egg shape and press one end of the fabric into the glue.
Start wrapping the fabric all the way around the egg in the middle.
When you get back the starting part (the fat part of the egg) you will then start to wrap by making x’s.
Finish wrapping the entire egg adding glue whenever you run out of fabric.
When the entire egg is covered , cut any extra fabric you have left off and glue down at the starting point.
If your fabric isn’t laying nicely you can add a bit of glue and press down edges.
Stain your egg, and let dry. You can use a strong pot of coffee or tea in a spray bottle, or I like to use Distress It.
Display in a bit of “grass” and enjoy!
