In case you’re short on time (or short on the desire to bust out the complete dye kit this year) embroidery thread has come to the rescue! No need to get your hands messy in a bunch of dye. A few threads of bright string will make your eggs the prettiest in the room, and they will save your hands from that inevitable purple/green dye job. Major win!
To make string wrapped Easter eggs all you need is:
- Hard boiled eggs
- A couple bunches of bright embroidery thread (find them for about 20 cents each in the craft department)
- Small pieces of double sided tape
To make the eggs, start by cutting the embroidery thread to about 8 inches long.
Adhere the center to the backside of the easter egg using a very small piece of double sided tape. This will make the wrapping much easier around the egg.
All that is left to do, is wrap the eggs. For variety we changed up the color and the wrapping style every few eggs. My favorite style was wrapping 4-5 layers thick and tying off with a pretty bow in front.
Some eggs were wrapped with wider layers to create a pretty graphic effect! Be creative and wrap this way and that way. The result is a carton full of gorgeous eggs and a simple craft that anyone in the house can participate in.
Happy wrapping! How will you decorate your eggs this year?
