Felt Easter Craft

Craft Felted Egg Baskets

In this sweet Easter basket craft, we'll be using the art of felting to create a beautiful basket perfect for gathering springtime treasures. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Waldorf philosophy, this craft celebrates simplicity, creativity, and the wonders of the season. Join us on a journey of crafting magic as we weave together wool fibers to create a one-of-a-kind Easter basket that will bring a touch of handmade love to your Easter celebrations!

This beautiful craft was created by Nicole Shiffler. See more of her lovely work HERE.

Create your Felted Basket:

 Step 1: Choose the colors of your felt roving. Make your bowl all one color or create a fun pattern by layering multiple colors.

Step 2: Wrap your roving around ½ of the foam ball. Hold the roving against the ball and begin needle felting. This process will take a while, so keep at it! As your fibers come together you may need to add more roving to achieve your desired thickness.

Step 3: Continue pushing the needles into the fibers all over the wool bowl shape. At this point you could add a letter or design on the outside of the bowl. Once the fibers are fully integrated gently peel the bowl off of the form.

Step 4: Set your bowl on the foam pad and use the felting needles to work on the fibers inside of the bowl until they are fully integrated.

Step 5: You can create a handle from wool roving by needle felting a rectangle then using your felting needle to attach it to each side, or make a finger knit handle from yarn!
