Ten Steps to Craft Yarn Creme Egg Covers

Step 1: Cutting Your Materials

  • Cut 12 inch (30 cm) strands of yarn, approximately 40 strands total.
  • Trim ¾ inch (2 cm) from your paper roll.

Step 2: Wrapping and Cinching Yarn

Create a loop and insert it into your small circle. Place the yarn ends on the outside and cinch it up, repeating this process all the way around the brim.

Step 3: Threading Yarn Ends

Simply push the yarn ends through to the other side. It’s as easy as that!

Step 4: Shaping the Hat

Straighten out your yarn ends, then take another 12 inch strand of yarn. Cinch it up and tie it off to form the top of the hat.

Step 5: Stuffing Poly-fill

To give your hat volume and shape, add a small amount of stuffing. It will remain snugly inside, completing your cozy creation.

Step 6: Crafting the Pom Pom Top

With your scissors, shape the yarn to create a pom pom at the top of your hat.

Step 7: Adding Googly Eyes

Peel off the backing from each googly eye or apply a small dab of glue to the back of each eye. Place two eyes on the top of your yarn hat brim to give your creation a playful touch.

Step 8: Cutting Felt Embellishments

For chicks, cut out a triangle-shaped beak from felt in any color of your choice. For bunnies, cut out long ears using two different colors of felt. Additionally, cut a small mouth area and tiny nose to complete the bunny’s face.

Step 9: Adhering Felt Embellishments

Using a touch of glue, attach the felt embellishments you’ve cut out onto your hat. For chicks, glue the triangle-shaped beak just below the eyes. For bunnies, attach the ears to the top of the hat and the nose and mouth just below.

Step 10: Preparing for the Creme Egg

Before inserting your delicious Creme Egg, remove a bit of Poly-fill from the bottom of the yarn hat, ensuring you retain enough filling to shape the top. This step will make room for the chocolate egg candy while maintaining the hat’s structure.
