More divine twine: How to wrap up Twine Easter Eggs

Surprise! I am kicking off the Easter Eggstravaganza a day early. I have so many fun ideas for decorating Easter eggs, and to squeeze them all in, I have to start today. Over the next week, I’ll share beautiful Easter eggs decorated with twine, paper, fabric, mosaic tiles, tissue paper and Mod Podge, napkins, crayons (yep, crayons!), and more. There will be an Eggstravaganza giveaway, too, which may or may not include chocolate bunnies, so read on.

cute and easy ideas for decorating Styrofoam eggs

The Easter Eggstravaganza starts today!

Today, I’m sharing Twine Easter Eggs designed by Patty Schaffer. If they look familiar to you, it’s because I shared Patty’s Divine Twine Topiary yesterday. The Twine Eggs and Twine Topiary would be beautiful displayed together on your springtime mantel, or maybe as an Easter dinner centerpiece. Enjoy!

To make Twine Easter Eggs, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 3-1/2” x 4-7/8” and 2-5/16” x 3-1/16” eggs
  • Pearl head pins in pastel pink
  • Beads: Hot pink and orange
  • Felt: Purple, pastel pink, hot pink, orange, gold and magenta
  • Double-stick tape OR thick, white craft glue OR low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins

It’s easy to make these eggs any size you like.

To make Twine Easter Eggs:

1. Adhere double-stick tape to all sides of the eggs, covering almost completely. (If you plan to glue on the twine, you can skip this step.)

2. Pin the twine to one end of the egg and start wrapping. Wind the twine tightly together so that the egg doesn’t show through. Wind to the middle of the egg, and then stop and cut the twine. If you’re using glue instead of double-sided tape, glue and pin as you wrap the twine, and wait till the glue dries to remove the pins.

3. Repeat, starting at the other end and wrapping till you meet the twine in the middle.

4. Cut out assorted 1” felt flowers from all the colors of felt. Mix and match to make two- and three-layered flowers.

6. Thread pink and orange beads onto the pearl head pins and randomly pin the flowers on the egg. Pin flowers over the twine ends at the top and bottom of the egg.

And now for the Easter Eggstravanganza giveaway. I have a really fun prize package that includes one dozen eggs of STYROFOAM Brand Foam; the winter issue of Stitch Craft Create (you’ll know why I’m including this issue tomorrow); and TWO chocolate bunnies. (I couldn’t decide between milk chocolate and dark chocolate so I decided to include both.)

    These are darling! The twine is sweet by itself but the embellishments really make these eggs shine.

  2. Julie Gregory says:

    Such a sweet idea!! Can’t wait to make these eggs and topiary for my fireplace mantel display. What a great gift for family and friends and so easy to make. I’m on my way to Michaels for my supplies!! Thank you for sharing!!!

  3. Cindy says:

    How cute are these Easter crafts. I especially love the twine eggs and topiary. I am an Activity Director for a nursing home. I think these crafts would be easy enough for my Resident to plan one of them to do next week. Thanks for the ideas.

  4. Connie Smith says:

    What a cool idea.. have wrapped cones with yarns and decorated for other seasons..but LOVE the flowers!!

    • Sharon says:

      I know, they really make the eggs sing “spring.” And because the flowers are pinned on, you can change them out for different colors, or even pin on buttons. Sharon

    Hello Everyone,
    The twine Easter eggs would make a nice group project for a women’s church group or any group! Using the small-ish sized eggs and having all materials organized ahead of time — they would come out beautiful and for folks who don’t routinely craft— how exciting for them!!!!!

    Easter is a wonderful family holiday filled with church, new beginnings, a big family dinner, the Easter Bunny, and the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The newest Easter egg designs are adorable and will fit with everyone’s decor to decorate for the big day. What is exciting is just by changing the colors a bit, they can decorate just about any room in the house. Have found with my nieces and nephews, as well as my sons, as long as some of the Easter eggs have paper money in them, they love the hunt. We avoid the coins in the Easter eggs as some of the little ones could possibly open one with coins and choke. Another health tip is to be cautious with children having peanut allergies when filling the eggs with candy.
    Loving your craft ideas and tips!

      Great advice, Angie, thanks for the tips and fun ideas, too. Good idea to fill a few eggs with money — I may try this this year. Thank you. Sharon

    I love the twine covered egg. I’m thinking maybe burlap covered eggs for a country look.

    Love the concept of twine Easter eggs, but I would probably use some of that neon colored twine I’ve seen in dollar stores and use white flowers etc.
