A bouquet of flowering branches, decorated with Easter eggs, is the most beautiful spring greeting in the period before the holidays. Whether colorful blown eggs, pasted eggs made of styrofoam or painted wooden eggs – the egg is the symbol of the resurrection par excellence and should not ! Since I am addicted to DiyDekoIdeen , I also thought about something homemade at Easter! Here I explain to you how to decorate eggs with yarn and decorate with them an Easter bouquet.
For this craft project, styrofoam animals are best because they are light, yet stable, and do not break as easily as blown chicken eggs.
- Styrofoam eggs
- Natural cord in different colors
- patterned ribbons
- strong liquid glue
First, I applied a speck of liquid glue to the top of the ice. It is important to use a liquid adhesive that is really strong, but can easily be washed off the hands and later dried transparently.
I waited a moment for the glue to dry a little, then took the natural cord and squeezed the end of the ice tip. So that the line really did not fall off and ruin my work, I fixed the end next with a matching color pin.
Slowly, I began to wrap the natural cord around the top of the ice. I quickly realized that patience is really the key to success with this technique.
One should pay attention to this
If you wind the string around the egg too quickly, you will get ugly gaps between the individual sheets. If you do not wait for the glue to dry, the string will fall off the egg and all the work will be in vain.
Again and again I applied liquid glue on the egg, wrapped a few times the natural cord around the Easter egg and squeezed the string. So that no gaps were visible, I pushed the cord up with my fingernail.
It helps if you make sure that the line is taut. For starters, I recommend smaller styrofoam eggs, as this technique is a bit time consuming. However, with more practice you will become steadily faster and see quick successes.
When I made my way to the thick end of the ice, I applied liquid glue again, cut off the cord and pressed the end of the string tight.
The Easter eggs are decorated
As the glue dried, I tied a natural cord loop that I stuck to the top of the ice with a pin. I stuck a piece of patterned ribbon around the little Easter eggs, knotted small loops for the bigger eggs and stuck them to the polypore eggs.
With this technique you need patience and time to achieve a really nice result, but if you have more practice, succeed the pretty Easter eggs in a jiffy. The eggs decorated with yarn are a rustic Easter decoration that exudes a touch of nostalgia. For more great DIY DekoIdeen and crafting ideas for Easter, visit our blog!
