Five Easter Egg Projects Using Recycled Materials

knitted Easter eggsIf you’re a knitter, then I hope that you haven’t been throwing away all the odds and ends of yarn that are leftover at the end of a knitting project, because you are going to want to use every bit–seriously, every bit!–to make these knitted Easter eggs from The Purl Bee.

To use them as conventional Easter eggs, simply omit the hanging loop from the tutorial.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
