These wood grain Folk Art Flower Easter Eggs will make your non-dye Easter egg dreams come true. First, know this about me: I love to create, but I hate a wet mess! I am always in search of fun ways to make eggs without dye (see my past years’ delights here and here and here). Make these flower Easter eggs with DIY furniture wrap samples from Panyl, so all you need to do is trace, peel and stick! Easy peasy!
A recent trip to the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe inspired these folk art flowers. If you ever get a chance, definitely go, you will see gorgeous craftsmanship curated and displayed beautifully. I fell in love with their collection of Polish paper cuttings. Certainly, I created a crude reinvention of some of the classic floral shapes I saw, but the overall effect made me happy!
I love the natural look of the wood grain, but certainly you could do bright colorful shapes as well, which is more traditional for Polish paper cutting. Panyl has wide range of colors to choose from! You could also cut these shapes (I provide a template below) out of paper and decoupage the shapes on the eggs, but this seemed so much easier!
One great thing about Panyl is that you can unpeel and restick. If you save the paper backing, you can save your designs and recreate the flower Easter eggs next year. Then, add to your collection each year. I’ve made a template for the four flowers I made here so you can recreate my same eggs.
:: Cut shapes from Folk Art Flower Easter Eggs Template. Trace on to the back of desired Panyl template (my favorites were Poplar, Driftwood, White Cedar, Limed Oak and Black Walnut). Cut out shapes.
:: Put stem on first.
:: Then, add flower shapes in order from left to right as they are drawn on the template. Layer them as you go.
I am so happy you are here! I am a maker and lover of beautiful things. Find DIY’s, patterns, projects and inspiration to endlessly delight you in your quest for a happy handmade life.
