Happy Spring to everyone in the Northern hemisphere! March 20th was the spring equinox this year, which is the Baha’i New Year, the Persian New Year, and a time of celebration and remembrance in many cultures. Springtime in general is a time of celebration in many religions and cultures. Easter, of course, is one of the most well known, with Easter eggs being a well known symbol. Here is an interesting history story about Easter Eggs. Decorated eggs have been used for so long that the oldest one known is 60,000 years old!! Wow!!! Paper quilling, on the other hand, is only a few hundred years old. I have no idea when the first paper quilling egg was made, but it would be pretty cool to find out!
Today I am sharing a few of the awesome 3D paper quilled eggs that I have found. Make sure to click the links to see more photos, as some of the artists have photos of the many other eggs they have made and they are all so awesome!
Several of the links have in progress photos or even full tutorials There are a few different methods used to make the egg shape. I think the easiest is using a styrofoam egg for the base, as you can easily poke holes into them. Find styrofoam eggs here on Amazon or at your local craft shop.
Looking for some nice bright spring colors for your paper quilling projects? Here is a collection of spring colors from Erin of Little Circles! Get this collection here on Amazon or another bright set in her online shop.
