I am not one to do much Easter egg decorating just because I did not grow up with the tradition. In fact, last year was rhe first time I attempted doing some food coloring eggs with the kids. But if you are looking to put a new twist on Easter egg decorating, you can try decorating them with yarn or twine. I saw the idea in a Country Living magazine and decided to give them a try.
They are way easier to make than any other egg decorating I have tried in the past. And the Spring colors really make the decorations pop! The ones in the magazine are decorated with twine but yarn is cheaper, so I went with it and it turned out well.
Although, there was one particular yarn that did not want to corporate (the multicolored one). It took me a while to get it and I still don’t think it turned out well as the other colors.
Here is how to make them.
- Decorative Easter eggs (I used fake eggs).
- Spring colored yarn or twine
- Crafter’s glue
- Easter grass (optional)
Use a small paintbrush to apply glue onto the top of an eggs. (I squeezed it on there). Don’t worry about the excess glue.
Starting in the center of the top, wrap yarn or twine into a tight circle.
Continue to brush on glue and wrap the egg until it is completely covered.
(You will use approximately 12 feet of twine for each egg).
The colors really make the eggs pop so I went ahead and took many photos of them!
