I was a little overwhelmed looking at all the options for where to buy hollow wooden eastern eggs when I was prepping for my free felt bunny pattern, and now that I have a source that I can recommend, I wanted to make it easier for other crafters Googling! These hollow wooden eggs open up so you can store treats inside; they were much sturdier than I was expecting and will hopefully last a lot longer than the plastic ones.
I left my unfinished for now, I really like the natural look. I could see painting them with kids, dip dyeing them in indigo, or even Mod Podging them with fabric scraps. This is a simple, sustainable Easter egg filler idea if you’re looking for a more natural Easter.
I bought my wooden Easter eggs off Etsy from RVANaturals (update, they seem to have closed their shop, see other similar options here), they shipped quickly and I am impressed by the quality. The only drawback that I noticed was the tops and bottoms don’t seem to be 100% interchangeable, I’m guessing they are handmade so there are slight differences between them. If you’re buying a whole bunch, you might want to add a dot inside or something instead of making it into a guessing game to match them all up!
My Mini Pocket Critters will fit into these eggs as well, my kids are obsessed with the pattern samples I sewed!
Above you can find my whole Easter craft Pinterest board, if you need more ideas! I’m going to order more wooden eggs for next year and will have to come up with some ways to get the kids involved in decorating them, even just coloring on them would be fun.
