DIY Embroidered Easter Eggs
- Large plastic Easter eggs — Note: You’ll want eggs that open length-wise from top to bottom, not in the very middle of the egg.
- Drill + drill bit — Note: Use a drill bit as small as you can manage to thread a needle and thread through
- Quilting needle
- Embroidery thread, various colors
- Scotch tape
- Printed Clipart
- Start by printing off some Clipart — for example, I printed off a rainbow, a flower, and a butterfly — that will fit on the front of your egg.
- Cut out your Clipart.
- Loop pieces of Scotch tape, and stick them onto the back of your cut-out Clipart. Position and stick down the tape and the Clipart onto the front of the egg.
- Use the Sharpie to “trace” your Clipart, but instead of tracing, you’ll be marking where you’ll be drilling holes. Once you’re done “tracing,” remove the paper and tape.
- Use your drill to drill small holes where you marked with the Sharpie. Be careful on this step, and wear protective eyewear!
- Thread your needle, then begin embroidering. Use a piece of Scotch tape to secure the loose ends of the thread. Repeat until you’re done embroidering.
