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.

Step 3:

Once the egg is completely covered with yarn, set it out to dry. The beauty of these Easter Eggs is that they last forever!
