You can use quilling paper or cut up thin strips of craft paper in your favorite colors.

Step 1: Selecting your quilling colors

For this craft, you’ll be making 3 basic quill shapes. A loose coil, a teardrop shape and a lens shape. 

The loose coil shape will be used the most, and the other two shapes will be used for filling the egg and adding a decorative flair. 

When choosing your colors you can pick lots of brightly colored quilling paper like we did, or go with a different color scheme.

You could make a few pretty ombre ones if you have enough colors, or do a mix of warm colored Easter eggs with cool colored Easter eggs. 

I like checking out Pinterest for fun color schemes when looking for a fun and unique looking craft. 

How to Make the Quilling Shapes

To make the loose coil shapes, you simple twirl your paper around your quilling tool and let it loosen a bit. Then glue the edge.

To make the teardrop shape, you take your loose coil shape and simple pinch one edge of it to make a point.

To make the lens shape, pinch two ends of your loose coil shape to make two pointed edges.

Step 2: Cut out your Egg

Now you can cut out your egg shape from a thick piece of craft paper.

We used white paper for our easter egg background, but next time I think a light pink or blue would be really pretty.

Step 3: Start Gluing

Start gluing down quilled shapes onto your egg cut out. I recommend starting from the top or bottom of your egg. 

Apply glue over a large chunk of your egg where you’ll want to be adding in your quilled shapes first.

Step 4: Start Adding Your Quilled Shapes to Your Egg

Start placing your quilled shapes onto the glued area of your easter egg. Make sure to gently press your shapes into the glue so the stick well and still hold their shape. 

Try to make sure to follow the border of your egg so it doesn’t end up looking like a big blob vs an easter egg. 

The top and bottom of your Easter egg is the perfect place for your lens-shaped quills.

Step 5: Keep Adding Your Quill Shapes

Keep adding your quill shapes to fill up your easter egg halfway through. 

I like adding in a layer of tear drop shapes close to the top and bottom of our eggs. It adds an interesting pattern that makes this easter craft really stand out.

Step 6: Fill in the bottom of your Easter Egg

Once the top half of your Easter egg is filled, now you can start filling in your other end.

Step 8: Fill in your gaps

Now you can use a variety of shapes to best fill in your gaps between your bottom half and top half. 

We used a combination of teardrop and loose coils to fill in ours.

Step 9: Dry and Enjoy your Quilled Easter Egg

Once you have completely filled in your egg, allow the glue to dry completely. We let ours sit out overnight to be sure they were really dry. 

Now you have a beautiful Easter egg decor that you can hang up on the wall, glue a magnet on the back or just prop up and enjoy. 

I think this would be super cute placed inside a small frame too!
