DIY thread egg – perfect Easter decoration

Easter preparations are in full swing. A little, just a little bit here comes Easter. Cakes, painted eggs and all will miss is just the final touch, something that will give everything that special Easter charm. How about eggs of string or thread?

All you need is:

  • balloon
  • Threads for embroidery or thin wool
  • Starch
  • Brush or sponge
  • Spray
  • Adhesive Tape
  • scissors
  • plastic eggs, flowers, bunnies, chicks, ribbons, artificial grass and similar things that you have at home

Step 1:

Inflate the balloon, until you get the shape of an egg. We advise you to use smaller balloons, thus you will be much easier to get that egg shape.

Step 2:

Take the beginning of the thread and paste it at the beginning. Honestly, twisting around the end of the balloon is the hardest part, be persistent and patient and ask someone to help you if you cannot do it yourself.

Step 3:

Put starch in a bowl and using a sponge, apply it abundantly to the end. If you are doing a sponge rather than a brush, starch will begin to foam, but it was no big deal, just keep working as prior. Make sure to soak good all the layers and all the pieces of thread.

Step 4:

Once you have well-soaked the thread with starch, leave the balloon to dry for 24 hours. Make sure to put something underneath so that the starch does not leak on the floor or carpet.

Step 5:

When the starch is completely dry, pop the balloon. Simply cut a small section just underneath the area where the balloon is blown, and gently release the air.

Step 6:

When the balloon is totally empty, use the scissors cut a hole in the egg, either round or egg-shaped, and removes the balloon.

Step 7:

Now you spray your thread egg to make it more durable. You can eventually put some varnish over the egg.

Step 8:

As the finishing touch, you can decorate your egg. Add some flowers around the hole in the shape of an egg, or put some artificial grass, rabbits, chickens and small yellow plastic eggs inside your egg.
