Pinterest Project: String-Wrapped Eggs

This week's Pinterest Project was spring themed!  It was much needed since the snow and the cold seem to be lingering this year.  We followed Alissa's tutorial for making string-wrapped eggs from her blog "Crafty Endeavor."  You can check out the tutorial here.

Basically, we dipped embroidery floss in a mixture of liquid starch and flour and then wrapped the floss around small balloons.  When the floss dried we popped the balloons to create these awesome eggs!

They look great grouped together, but they also make a festive garland.  I used some more sheer ribbon and simply strung it through the tops of the eggs.

Happy Easter!

  1. Looks nice. I strung mine up with fishing line and they look like they are floating. 2 strands of floss look fuller. Nice Job.
