Easter Sunday is fast approaching, and families everywhere are preparing for the Holiday by dyeing traditional Easter eggs.
Make life-sized Easter eggs using pearl cotton, glue and foam, paper mache or wood egg shapes. The Killer Crafts blogsite will show you how to wrap colorful thread around the shapes to make these easy decorative eggs using an assortment of solid colors.
You can also try using Pearl Cotton Variations in spring colors for a variegated egg. Choose your favorite colors, coat with glue and wrap – it’s so easy! And, these eggs are sturdy enough to store and re-use year after year.
Make a few dozen of these eggs and hide them around the house for the kids to find.
While the models have candy as the treat, small toys or coins can also be used.
The folks at the Mod Podge blog have used a similar technique to make a beautiful Easter egg garland.
You can even add the eggs to a wreath to grace the front door, or fill up baskets as decorative accents during the Holiday.
