Fabric Easter Eggs - Batik Style

5 Materials
2 Hours

I can always find ways to use batik fabric, and this one for Easter Eggs, is just too easy and fun!

Buy a fat quarter of any fabric you like, or use any remnant you already have on hand. You won't need but 12 inches or less of fabric. I got these as a set.

Along one end of the fabric, snip 1/2" or so all along the edge of the fabric. I'd suggest spacing your snips about 1/2" apart. That determines the width of the fabric swatches. You can do wider, but it'll become herder to roll around the egg.

Rip the fabric into strips. Mix and match your fabric swatches as desired. You can coordinate your fabric however you'd like.

Now gather your styrofoam eggs, Mod Podge, fabric strips, and a paint brush.

The actual completion is really simple. Simply wrap the strips of fabric around the egg in alternating patterns (and with different colors of fabric if you want.) Use the Mod Podge to glue things down as you go, but you don't have to be real heavy handed with it.

Let the eggs dry on either wax paper or aluminum foil, just so it doesn't adhere to whatever you're drying them on!

Ready for a perfect Easter tablescape!
