Iron-on Easter Egg

You don't need to boil eggs for Easter decorating anymore: find inexpensive styrofoam, glass or plastic ones at craft stores and discount stores. We found this plain pink egg at AC Moore and knew it needed something fancy. Kreinik Iron-on Threads to the rescue: quick, fancy-looking, but super easy.  Click here to see how easy they are to use.

Materials needed:

  • Easter egg (our version is a Styrofoam™ egg covered with some basic decorations, from AC Moore)
  • Kreinik Iron-on Medium #16 Braid in 6200 Daffodil
  • Kreinik Iron-on 1/8" Ribbon in 6010 Pearl
  • Kreinik Small Adhesive Press Cloth (fits on a mini craft iron), or Medium Adhesive Press Cloth for a medium-sized craft iron *
  • Misc buttons and straight pins, optional

Instructions:

The adhesive press cloth covers the plate of the iron to give it a non-stick surface. This will keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron.

  1. Turn your iron onto high heat and let it heat thoroughly.
  2. Begin decorating your egg with the iron-on ribbon first: lay the ribbon at a starting point, cover with your iron and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue working your design this way until complete. We simply followed the outlines of the white paint on our egg.
  3. Add a layer of decorating by ironing the Medium #16 Braid onto the egg, following the printed pattern on the egg or a free-form design.
  4. When thread decorating is complete, add buttons if desired by attaching them onto the Styrofoam™ egg with the straight pins.
