Hello! I’m so excited that it’s almost spring. It’s still winter around here, and we just had a big snowstorm last night. Easter is one of my favorite holidays, so today I’m sharing how to make this Yarn Easter Eggs Craft. Here’s what you’ll need!
Yarn Easter Eggs Craft
- Balloons. Standard size or water balloons both work.
- Yarn. As many colors as you’d like.
- Matte mod podge.
- Toilet paper or paper towel roll.
- Paper plate or newspaper work surface.
- Container to mix the mod podge in.
We need to start by making bases to dry your eggs on. Otherwise your will have weird globs of dried glue if you dry them on a flat surface. So, just take a toilet paper or paper towel roll, and cut off some sections. You’ll need one section for each egg you want to make. Here I’m just making two eggs.
Next, blow up two (or more!) balloons to a large egg size. They don’t all have to be the same size, you can make them slightly different. You might need to help shape your balloon a bit with your hands to get that good egg shape. Now you need to put a good amount of mod podge into your container.
Add an equal amount of water, and mix it well until it looks like a very thin glue. Now you want to cut approximately 3 yards of yarn in your color of choice. Carefully wind it up on your hand, and then dunk it into the glue mixture. Let it soak completely for a couple minutes to absorb the glue. Then start wrapping the yarn around your balloon.
Very important! Make sure to squeeze the excess glue out of the yarn by running it between your fingers before you wrap it around the balloon.
Keep wrapping and wrapping until you’re happy with how your egg looks. Then at the end of the yarn, weave it under a few crossed pieces of yarn, and smooth it down with a bit of the glue on your fingertip. Now, just set your balloon in the holder we made and let it dry for a full 24 hours. Do this for all the balloons you want to make.
This is how mine looked 24 hours later when they were all dry!
Now you can take your scissors and pop your balloon. You’ll see some areas of the balloon separate from your egg right away, and others might need a bit of help. Loosen those areas with the help of a chopstick or pencil, and pull the balloon out of your egg.
You’re all done! I hope you had fun learning how to make this Yarn Easter Eggs Craft with me!
