Using our rainbow wool roving, the kids and I made wet felted eggs, perfect to hold treasures for their Easter Baskets in less than two short weeks.
I’m not an expert on felting, but we’ve learned lots of little tricks along the way. One thing that is a must if you are new to it is to make sure you pull your felt apart as I have in the picture below before wrapping it around your egg.
We follow Martha Stewart’s post on wet felting. This is the kids favorite part, and mine too. Lots of suds and water getting everywhere, so much fun!
After we finished wet felting, we tossed ours in dryer. You don’t have to do this. Depending on how tightly you wrapped yours, or how soft you want your egg, its really up to you. Ours were in the dryer for about five minutes.
