This idea is old news, but I had yet to try it! It was really easy, just slow... like all the rest of the eggs I've done so far.
Materials for Twine Eggs
Twine (I found mine in the jewelry making section of Wal Mart)
First, splay the end of the twine so it is flat, like this.
Glue the flat end down to the bottom of your egg.
Twist the twine around the egg, covering the splayed end. Be careful with your glue; if you put on too much, there will be gobs of glue oozing out between twine layers.
Keep winding! Glue, wind, glue, wind. You will get in a rhythm and it will become easier. I used medium sized twine, and there were some "lumpy" spots in it, which resulted in a lopsided egg. But I didn't mind!
When you get near the top of the egg, wind the twine to figure out how much more you will need and cut it off. Apply your glue, and finish winding, making sure you tuck the end of the twine away so you can't see it.
It will look so nice and neat!
I was trying to take pictures, but the baby came along and swiped the eggs from me. That's okay! I will probably spray paint my eggs today so they coordinate with my others- I am aiming for texture here. Gotta love a little texture!
Work on any eggs lately? I've got a fun one for Monday that doesn't actually involve covering any eggs! Check back and see- I'm excited to show you.
