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!

What a great way to use up those little bits and bobs of yarn in your stash! Great idea!

These would make cute Easter shakers for kids if you put dry rice, popcorn, or dry beans in the eggs and glue the egg together for safety before you wrap them

These came out beautiful. I can’t believe you braided all of it and then just wrapped it around. So clever! Thanks for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays.
Anita Stafford says
These eggs are very pretty, don’t know how you ever got all that yarn braided!
Love the look of the braided Easter eggs. I’m surprised I haven’t seen this technique before. Thanks for sharing.
These eggs are neat too. Do you have to use a special type of glue or do you think elmers school glue will work?

I think hot glue is better because it dries so quickly.
What I like about this project is that it is something I can do with the kids. Thank you for the inspiration.
I hope you can stop by and share at the It’s a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising.
Very cute! This would be a fun craft for an older child to do. They also would be fun done in school colors!
I found your post through Tutorial Tuesday.
