When you are stuck inside and Easter is just around the corner what do you do? Create a DIY Felt Easter Egg Craft with your Cricut Maker, of course!
Are you looking for a simple craft to keep your toddler busy? Or you are planning an indoor Easter egg hunt? No matter the occasion this Cricut Maker DIY Felt Easter Egg Craft is the perfect solution.
To be completely honest when it comes to dying Easter eggs I’m not really a big fan. Maybe it’s because I’ve been traumatized by the huge mess it makes. Or it could be the fact that the colors never look quite as vibrant and colorful as I want them to be. These felt Easter eggs are much more my style. Less mess and quite frankly a whole lot more fun!
My Cricut Maker is one of my favorite craft tools, and in these strange times we are currently experiencing due to being quarantined in our homes, I’m now grateful more than ever to have such a versatile tool at my fingertips. You could make these pretty eggs with felt, fabric, paper or even balsa wood using your Cricut Maker.
Some of the creative ways you could use them are to make a “find the match” Easter Egg Hunt indoor. Create two eggs that look exactly alike. Hide one of the eggs and then give the other one to your child. Their mission is to find the exact same Easter egg like the one they have hidden in the house. Or surprise your neighbors and “Egg” their house by scattering the eggs all over their front door.
Use your Cricut Maker to cut out felt Easter eggs and then gather supplies you likely already have in your craft stash to decorate them.

Felt Easter Egg Craft Tutorial
Start by opening up Cricut Design Space and the Easter egg SVG file. You can resize and edit the files as needed.
Next, cut out the felt Easter eggs with the Cricut Maker, rotary blade and FabricGrip mat.
After you cut out the felt eggs, cut out iron-on vinyl to embellish the felt eggs.
Use the Cricut EasyPress Mini to iron-on the vinyl details. Remove the transfer sheet to reveal your design.
Decorate the remaining felt eggs with ribbon, pom-poms, and buttons. I used Beacon Fabri-tac and Felt Glue to attach the ribbon embellishments. I used my hot glue gun to add the pom-poms and buttons.
This was such a fun and easy craft to pass the time while we are stuck indoors. My kids are looking forward to hunting Easter eggs with their cousins later this week.
