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.

This joyful looking egg was made by Jana and can be found here on her blog.  She shows it in parts so you can kind of see how to make one for yourself!
This pretty egg was made by Baukje from Netherlands.  You can see more of her eggs if you click here.  You can visit her quilling blog here which has more eggs, and other designs as well.

Making a quilled egg doesn’t mean you have to stick to a traditional finished egg design, as you can see from this truly amazing piece!  A quilled egg has been used as the base of a merry-go-round carriage!  WOW!  This was made by Akadela and you can see more amazing designs here on her facebook page.
You don’t have to use a lot of different colors to create a stunning result.  Sometimes just one color is gorgeous as well!  These lace eggs  were made by Oksana.  You can view the design here as well as step by step photos on how it was created.  Very helpful if you want to make one as well!
