It’s almost Easter again. Have you finished dyeing your eggs? How about something different for a change? Why not wrap your Easter Eggs with colorful yarn? You can even Dye the Yarn with Easter Egg Dyes to make them even more special.
Step 1: Supplies:
Here’s all you need:
– Plastic Eggs
– Colorful Yarn or learn to Dye Your Own Yarn
– Tacky Glue
– Craft Sticks
Step 2: Wrapping the Eggs
Spread a thin layer of Tacky Glue over a small section of a plastic egg and attach the yarn. This takes a little practice and can get a bit messy. Use your fingers to snug the strands of yarn against each other. You can glue the yarn in many different patterns, stripes … you can also strand several colors at once. Oh, and I tried to use the glue gun but the glue dried too quickly.
Once the egg is completely covered with yarn, set it out to dry. The beauty of these Easter Eggs is that they last forever!
