Spun Cotton Eggs SPUNNYS all sizes mm

Spun cotton eggs are very easy to paint and decorate.

Small size eggs such as 12 and 18 mm eggs work great to make paper flowers. To make a paper flower, simply cut petals into crepe paper and glue them around the base of an egg.  Keep the egg on a wooden stick while you work on it. When finished, replace the wooden stick with a floral stem.

The 12 mm eggs are also perfect to make artificial pussy willow branches.

Larger eggs are perfect to decorate for Easter (or any other occasion). They are great alternatives to plastic and polystyrene eggs. You can paint the eggs and/or cover them with glitter, ribbons, Dresden trimmings… To apply the glitter, first apply liquid craft glue over the eggs with a brush. When done,  sprinkle the eggs with glitter over a small bowl. Let dry and voila :)

Each egg has a single hole at the bottom in which an ornament hanging loop or a floral stem can easily be inserted.

Spun Cotton Eggs: Questions and Answers


Can the eggs be dyed like real eggs?

They should not be immersed in liquids. The eggs would turn soft and spongy and lose their nice shapes


Can they be painted?

Absolutely, they are made of paper and are ready to go. No need for primer, gesso, or anything like that.


How to paint Spun Cotton Eggs?

The easiest way to paint them is to insert a pick at the bottom and use it as a handle. All spun cotton shapes already have a little hole at the bottom .

To paint a straight line around the egg, simply spin the wooden pick while holding the brush still.


What paint is recommended?

We like acrylic paint because it dries fast and once it is dry, it creates a strong protective layer around the egg. To protect the eggs from eventually getting dirty and also to make them easy to clean, they can be finished with a clear coat. Glossy mod podge works great.


How do these eggs compare to plastic eggs?

They are much easier to paint than plastic eggs, it’s like painting on paper. Simple acrylic paint or watercolor work great on spun cotton, whereas on plastic, one would need to use a primer or a special paint.
