Felted dreads for Easter egg hunt DIY

Here is another great idea for an Easter eggs hunt, felted wool dreads. I've got this from Nadia (learn2felt shop on Etsy) who is passionate about felting. The dreads are so colorful, they remind me bright colored Easter eggs. I think the kids will love to wear these and I am sure they would love to help you with making them!

Here is how to make the Rainbow felted wool dreads - you will need wool that comes as roving (picture 1), a piece of bubble wrap and a bowl filled with soapy water.
2. Tear pieces off.
3.  Divide into strips.
4. Combine colors you want.
5. Wet in soapy water.
6. Roll on bubble wrap.

7. Ready with all 7 dreads.
8. Attach with wisp of wool.
9. Rub between palms.
10. Rub every dread on bubble wrap again.
11. Rinse and dry.
