I had a bunch of plastic Easter eggs around my house and wanted to find a way to use them. This led to the creation of these simple, rustic twine Easter eggs. This is a quick and easy project that requires only a few supplies you may already have around your home.
Tools and Materials
To create these twine easter eggs, you’ll need:
Step-by-Step Instructions for these Twine Easter Eggs:
Take your plastic egg, and put a generous dot of hot glue on either end. Press the twine into the hot glue, making sure it is secure before you wrap the twine.
Once your twine is secure, begin wrapping the twine in a circle around your starting point. I put several dots or lines of glue around the egg to secure the twine. Make sure that you continue to press the twine securely into the glue as you wrap your egg.
Try to get your twine layers as close together as possible to hide the color of the plastic egg underneath. In the video tutorial, I had selected a yellow plastic egg because it was the closest to the twine and a little less noticeable if it peeked through.
Around the middle of the egg, slow down and use more glue, because the twine will have a tendency to slip away.
Keep spinning and securing your twine until you reach the end of your egg. Once your egg is covered, snip your twine as close to the egg as possible and press the end in. You might even want to add a little extra glue.
How to Style your Twine Easter Eggs
Now that you have some twine Easter eggs, it is time to style them! If your decor style leans more rustic, they would look great in a wooden bowl or an ironstone bowl. If you want to add more hints of spring around your home, add them to a nest.
I love these eggs because they are neutral- they can add a subtle touch of Spring to any space. These eggs don’t have to be limited to spring decor. I think they would even look great in a bowl in your home year-round.
