Surprise-Inside Felt Easter Eggs

Make your own set of surprise-inside eggs with just four materials! Kids will love making (and opening) these adorable Easter crafts.

Kids will love making these surprise-inside eggs almost as much as they'll love opening them!

With just four materials needed for this project, it might be our easiest Easter craft ever! Craft the eggs from felt and parchment paper held together by colorful staples. Just add a surprise treat, and these adorable Easter crafts will be ready to give away! With adult supervision of the stapler, this is the perfect Easter craft for kids—they'll love deciding what treats to put in the eggs, and they'll love opening them, too!

Editor's Tip: Our editors found that staples were the best method for this craft, as it holds the eggs together well and it makes ripping the eggs open much easier. If you're not comfortable using staples, you can try other methods of securing the eggs, such as with glue or tape. An adult could also stitch it with embroidery floss and a needle.

What You'll Need:

  • Wool felt 
  • Parchment paper
  • Colored staples 
  • Candy, stickers, and/or small accessories 

Step 1: Cut egg shapes

Use our free template to cut a set of egg-shape ovals from wool felt. We used the pattern to cut several different colors of felt; opt for pastel felt to get the same look, or go with colors that match your existing Easter baskets. You will need only one felt shape per egg, so cut as many felt ovals as the number of eggs you wish to make.

Step 2: Cut parchment paper and attach

Use the same template to cut pieces of parchment paper that are the same size as your felt ovals. To make the eggs, place a felt egg on a parchment paper egg. With the felt on top, staple around the perimiter of the egg, spacing closely and leaving an opening at the top; be sure the opening is large enough for the objects you'll fill the eggs with.

Step 3: Fill eggs

Use the openings to add a surprises to the inside of each egg. We filled our eggs with an assortment of small candies, stickers, and homemade confetti; add enough to fill the egg but not so much that you can't close the opening. When the eggs are filled, staple closed to seal the treats inside the eggs. Add the eggs to Easter baskets, incorporate them as part of your Easter decor, or leave one on each place setting at Easter brunch.
