Easter Decorations - Yarn Eggs

Today's post is all about fun homemade decorations for Easter.  I'm going to show you how I made my super cute Yarn Easter Eggs!

The materials you will need:
  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Yarn
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors

The first step is to secure your yarn on one end of the egg. It doesn't matter what end you start with, just try to get it close to the center.

Continue to spiral the yarn around the egg, securing with hot glue. You want to press the yarn onto the egg to get a good bond. I can't tell you how many times I burned myself in this process, so be careful!
Continue this spiraling and gluing process all the way around the egg. It will get a little harder to keep the yarn layers tightly together towards the middle. I found that keeping the yarn loose in my hand while I wrapped it worked better than pulling tightly. 

Also--be careful not to squeeze the egg. Unless you've glued the egg together, you  might pop the egg open in the middle of your project. (Speaking from experience!)

Once you get to the end just snip of the end and tuck it in!
This is a time consuming, sometimes finger burning process, but they are SO adorable! I made four multicolored ones and two blue ones for a pop of unexpected color.

What other ways have you taken simple Easter Eggs to unique, fabulous eggs? Let me know in the comments below!
