Hello my crafty friends! I have a free Easter Egg SVG cut file for you today. Plus I’ll show you how I used this SVG file to make some amazing suncatchers.
This is a fun craft for the kiddos to help with. And when you’re done they’ll love hanging the Easter Eggs on windows.
The suncatchers add a nice burst of color to rooms too. As you can see from my picture, Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet in the midwest. So adding some color to my windows helps hide that dead grass out there lol.
Let’s get started
Easter Egg Suncatcher Supplies Needed
- 8.5×11 or 12×12 Black Cardstock (or any color)
- Tissue Paper in a variety of colors
- Glue or Gluestick
- A way to cut the Easter Egg SVG file (I use my Cricut)
- Free Easter Egg SVG files -I keep mine in my free Resource Library -more details at the end of the post.
The three Easter Egg SVGs are sized to cut one each on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper, but you can make them a bit bigger and use the 12×12 if you want.
I purchased this black cardstock from Amazon for this project. I got the tissue paper at the Dollar store. It came in a variety pack of a bunch of bright colors and designs.
The rest of the stuff I had on hand. You should be able to find all of the supplies at the Dollar store with the exception of a Cricut cutting machine of course.
How to make Easter Egg Suncatchers
If you need help uploading SVG files to design space see this post.
When you upload the free Easter Egg SVG file to design space it will look like this.
I stacked the three Easter Eggs on top of each other to save space. But you can see in the layers menu they are all in fact separate. If you want them 8.5×11 paper size (they are actually a tad smaller than 8.5×11) you can go ahead and click the make it button. Everything is ready to go for that size.
If you want to make the eggs smaller or larger, click the Ungroup button on the top and that will separate them so you can make them different sizes.
When you are removing the eggs from the mat don’t forget to flip it upside down and peel the mat back from the paper. I forgot to tell my daughter that step and we tore one.
Don’t worry if you have a tear tho, you can glue it back together.
Adding The Tissue Paper
Next we are going to cut the tissue paper to glue on the back of the eggs. You can do this two ways.
First trace the area you need to cut with a pencil and then cut the tissue paper with scissors.
Or you can just use an exacto knife to cut the tissue paper like this….
Just be sure not to press really hard and cut through the cardstock too. I had a few marks on my cardstock, but it didn’t cut through and that’s ok.
When you are done cutting the tissue paper it’s time to glue it on the back of the egg. I used tacky craft glue for this part.
This is a great part to have kids help with or do on their own. A word of caution, you may want to pick the egg up and move it after you glue each section. If glue goes over the edges you could end up gluing your Easter Egg to the table (ask me how I know lol)
When you are done gluing all of the pieces on flip it over and admire your work.
And that’s all there is to it! This is a super simple and super colorful Easter craft everyone will enjoy.
