Woodland Animal Easter Eggs Craft
Are your looking for a fun Easter Egg Craft that will last all year long? Check out these amazing Woodland Animal Easter Eggs that are made out of wooden eggs!
We love Easter Crafts and these are surprisingly simple to make. They are a perfect option for the big kids who aren’t as enthusiastic about painting Easter eggs the old-fashioned way.
These DIY Animal Eggs are also great for all the crafty moms out there, who are looking for a fun Easter decoration or even as a gift idea. Plus, they can be used to decorate a planter for the rest of spring or even on a shelf in a playroom. They are seriously that gorgeous!
I’m thinking about keeping my extra supplies on hand and having the kids recreate these during our annual camping trip too, they would be a perfect afternoon animal craft.
We have the directions along with a free printable template below to make a bunny, a bear, and a porcupine.

Wooden or Paper Mache Eggs
Black Paint Pen or Permanent Marker
Paint the wooden eggs with the base colors. You will need to give each egg 2-3 coats of paint and make sure to allow the paint to dry completely.
Next, download the free printable template and print it out. Cut out the pieces and trace the pieces onto cardstock.
Cut each piece out and glue the pieces of the ears together and set them aside.
Once the wooden eggs are fully dried, paint a face and stomach onto each egg. Use the photos as a reference. This step will require 1-2 coats of paint.
Allow the paint to dry completely on the face and stomach.
After the face and stomach are dry, paint a nose onto each of the animal eggs. Add a white line on top of each nose with paint to give it dimension.
Next, use a pencil to draw the eyes and a mouth onto the animal eggs.
Once you are satisfied with how the eyes and mouths look, trace over them with a black paint pen or permanent marker.
Allow everything to dry completely, before the upcoming gluing steps.
First, glue the ears on top of the egg, then tails on the back slightly sticking out to the front and finally the porcupine’s spikes onto his back.
That’s it, Your eggs are finished! These are so cute and because they’re made of wood they’ll last long after Easter is over! You could pack them up for next year, use them as decorations year round, they would look adorable on a shelf in a woodland themed nursery, or in a decorative planting pot. The possibilities are endless with this Animal Easter Egg Craft!
