It’s Monday! That means it’s time for Making It Monday. Some weeks the crafts will be super simple, some times they’ll be a bit more complex, and sometimes they’ll be perfect for toddler participation. Regardless you can be sure that you’ll always find something adorable with instructions so easy to follow that even the craft-challenged will be able to replicate the project in their own home – promise! This week I’ll be continuing with the Easter theme and showing how I made some super cute yarn Easter eggs – very similar to the yarn ball Christmas ornaments I shared over a year ago.
Materials & Supplies:
styrofoam eggs, yarn, hot glue gun,
1.) If you want the egg to stand on end slice a small bit off the larger end of the egg so that it is flat – I did this on my large styrofoam eggs.
2.) Put a small dab of hot glue on the small end of the egg and attach the yarn in a small “u” shape. Slowly add more glue to the egg and continue wrapping the yarn. Use a multicolored yarn to achieve the striped look.
3.) Continue gluing the yarn until the entire egg has been covered.
4.) That’s it – so simple!
And now I have adorable yarn covered Easter eggs scattered about my fireplace mantle that I can use year after year. Love them!
