I realized the other day that I haven’t done anything for Easter! Not only was I shocked at my own lack of Easter treats – which will be coming to you in the next two days – but also that I had not done any Easter DIY projects!
So today is the day we change all of that with this simple tutorial for Twine Eggs.
These Twine Eggs are great for Easter decor and can even be filled with candy and used in an Easter Egg hunt! For some reason the only small candy we have in our house is chocolate kisses!
I love how simple yet beautiful these Twine Eggs look displayed in a bird bath that we used at our wedding!
What you’ll need:
Lace, ribbon, buttons – optional
First, choose an egg, apply a small drop of glue to the top – or bottom – of the the plastic egg and attach the end of the twine.
Next, add more glue around the glued twine and wrap the loose twine around the already attached twine. (Sorry, I feel like that sounds a little confusing!)
Continue to glue and wrap the twine around the plastic egg. When you reach half way you have a choice. The first option is to cut the end of the twine – gluing the end down – and then restart gluing and wrapping the twine on the opposite end of the egg. This will allow you to open and close the egg so that you can fill the Twine Eggs with candy and use them in an easter egg hunt. The second option is to continue glueing until you have covered the entire egg and use the Twine Eggs for decorations.
If you are doing the first option make sure that you don’t accidentally glue the two halves of the egg together. Don’t you just love how you can use this as a decoration or for an easter egg hunt?
If you decide to go with the decorative Twine Eggs continue to wrap and glue the twine to the plastic egg until it is completely covered. You can then add lace, buttons, ribbon, or any other small decorative items to your Twine Eggs.
Come back tomorrow for a sweet Easter treat!
