Wool Felted Egg Tutorial
Apparently I dreamt that I posted this before because I can not find it anywhere! I am blaming this one on 'Mama-brain', that usually covers everything...
I was very blessed to be asked to join the Spring edition of Rhythm of the Home by the lovely Heather and Bernadette. I was honored and thrilled at the thought. I knew right away I wanted to share how our family celebrates the arrival of Spring with the appearance of the root children. It is such a special time of year for us, a time the girls look forward to the most.

We used to put gifts from the Root Children in plastic Easter eggs but I really didn't like that idea. I am not a big fan of plastic, plus I really wanted these to look like they were handmade by the Root Children just for my girls. So I started making wet felted wool eggs, cut them open and put the presents inside of them, instead. They are so sweet to see scattered across our lawn, the girls love them and they are simple to make.
I am really happy to be able to share these with all of you.

To read the full story of how we celebrate with the Root Children and the wool felted egg instructions please go check out my article at Rhythm of the Home. You might want to grab a cup of tea and a nice cozy blanket before you do, though, you are going to want to read every single article in the current issue and the past one. It really is a spectacular resource.

Happy reading! I would love to see pictures of your eggs if you make some.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!
