Braided, Yarn-Wrapped Plastic Easter Eggs are both fun and decorative!
So I’ve got my yarn out and I figure I might as well use it! I came up with these Braided Easter Eggs. I braided yarn and then wrapped the Easter eggs in the braided yarn. So cute!
Cut 3 or 6 pieces of yarn equal lengths. I cut mine to about 7-8 ft and used about 6 ft of braided yarn for each egg. Using two strands of each color, braid the yarn. Every few seconds you will need to detangle the yarn or you will have a mess at the end. Trust me on this.
Once you have about 6 ft of braid you are ready to glue.
Starting at the end of the egg, glue the end of the braid using a nice amount of hot glue.
Continue working your way around the egg.
Gluing and braiding until you reach the other end of the egg.
Trim off the excess and make sure all strands are glued onto the egg.
The eggs don’t take long at all to make and are so cute! Tons of texture and interest!

I am glad I saw this at A Glimpse Inside. I had the eggs. I had the yarn. I wasn’t sure where I was going to go from there. Now I know! Thanks for sharing.
