Easter Eggstravaganza: DIY Twine Easter Eggs

You can wrap up these Twine Easter Eggs in two steps – I like that! And then add your own flair with the embellishments. Rebekah Meier adds a vintage twist with lace, ribbon and paper flowers. In a past Eggstravaganza, designer Patty Schaffer put her own spin on Twine Eggs with colorful pops of bright, felt flowers. I’d love to know how you would decorate your Twine Easter Eggs.

To make Twine-Wrapped Eggs, you will need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: Three, 3” eggs
  • Jute twine
  • Embellishments: Lace, ribbon, paper flowers, and buttons
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins

To make Twine-Wrapped Eggs:

1. Squeeze a pea-size dab of glue on the narrow end of the egg. Pin one end of the twine onto the glue, and start to wrap the twine around the egg. Add more glue and pins as you go, and keep wrapping till the egg is covered.

2. Embellish:

  • Wrap ribbon and lace around the middle of an egg, secure with glue and pins.
  • Add bows, buttons and paper flowers.

If you’d like to punch it up a bit, here are Twine Easter Eggs designed by Patty Schaffer. She pinned on colorful felt flowers and they really “pop.”

I want to share just one more project. After a looong winter, I am loving these bright flowers and butterfly. If you feel the same way, be sure to check out Patty’s Burlap, Twine & Butterfly Wreath.
