Easter Fun

I saw this fantastic Easter Egg Deco Idea on Family Fun via Amy Atlas and had to share.  These are so cute and festive and can be hung up or work as the perfect centerpiece for your Easter holiday festivities.  Attach them to the branches of a tree centerpiece or cluster them in a bowl, instant glamour.

What you'll need:
Thin cotton yarn
Craft glue
Waxed paper
Clothes hanger


  1. For each egg, cut twenty 3-foot-long strands of cotton yarn and blow up a balloon to a 6- to 8-inch diameter. Mix equal parts of glue and water in a shallow disposable container.

  2. Cover your work area with newspaper and a sheet of waxed paper. Hold a strand of yarn by one end, dip it into the glue mixture, then wrap it around the balloon. Repeat with the other strands, randomly overlapping them and tucking in loose ends, until the balloon is evenly covered.

  3. Using the clothespin, suspend the balloon from the clothes hanger and let it dry overnight. (Cover the area below it with newspaper to catch drips.) Once the egg is completely dry, carefully poke a hole in the balloon, then pull it away from the string as it deflates. Hang your finished egg with ribbon or yarn.
