Instructions

  • For the various dog faces and fluffy ears, make yarn pom-poms using a fork. It’s actually quite easy! This is a great tutorial.
  • For advanced crafters, pom-pom makers are sold online or at craft stores. You can also buy premade pom-poms in a variety of colors.
  • For the faces, tape or glue holes punched from cardstock (circles for eyes and noses and hearts for tongues) and draw lips and whiskers with a permanent marker.
  • For a fluffy face, use a pom-pom and glue the eyes and nose directly on it.
  • To make feet, cut craft foam into heart-like shapes and tape or glue to the bottom of the egg.
  • For the Poodle-like white dog’s ears, cut craft foam into oblong shapes, tape or glue them to the side of the egg, then attach pom-poms at the top of each ear.
  • Glue a cotton ball for the nose.
  • Fill the eggs with jelly beans so they stand up.
