This beautiful egg craft will bring a little sunshine to your spring day! These pretty eggs are so easy to create and make a great sun catcher or garland.
I’m so excited that the days are finally getting longer and warmer! We still have a bunch of snow, but it’s melting quickly! The boys are running around our yard looking for the largest patch of green grass and spotting new birds everyday. Spring is definitely on its way!
I have a bunch of fun new craft ideas to share with you this season. Let’s start with this gorgeous egg craft!
Ready to give it a try!? Here’s what you’ll need..

Here’s How We Made This Egg Craft:
First, cut a large piece of wax paper and fold it in half to make a crease.
Place your egg cut out at the fold mark and tape it to the wax paper so it doesn’t move when you cut out the egg shape. Cut around the template, but make sure you don’t cut along the bottom fold. You want the 2 eggs to stay attached.
Next, open your wax egg.
Then, place a towel on your work surface to protect it from the iron heat.
Arrange your pressed flowers and leaves on the egg and flip up the other side of the egg.
This is my favorite part of this egg craft! As soon as your iron hits the wax paper, it will fuse together! It’s a neat process to observe. I quickly ran the iron over the wax paper several times, then I flipped it over and did the same thing on that side. Get out as many air bubbles as possible while ironing.
Once the egg is ironed, trim any uneven edges of your egg.
Punch holes in the eggs and string twine to make an egg garland. Tape the egg to the back of the twine to keep it in place!
This egg craft makes such a gorgeous indoor decoration! You can hang them in the window as a sun catcher or on a shelf. If you hang them near a mantle, make sure you remove them before you start a fire. The heat will damage the craft!
If you bring them outdoors, make sure you bring them inside at the end of the day because they are not waterproof. They looks so pretty in the sun!
Pin it and save it for later!
I hope you give this beautiful egg craft a try! I promise, your little nature lovers will love it as much as my boys.
