Make these twine wrapped Easter eggs for your spring home décor. I found these extra large Easter eggs at the Dollar Tree and wrapped twine around them for the easiest and cheapest Easter themed décor. With only a few supplies, this super simple project can be tackled in under 30 minutes.
Each egg takes almost a full roll of twine, which comes about to about $2 each. That’s not bad for farmhouse Easter décor. Scope out your local Dollar Tree for some extra large Easter eggs. Then add this twine-wrapped Easter eggs project to your to-do list!
How to Make Twine Wrapped Easter Eggs
Supplies needed for this simple Easter egg project:
These were the eggs before I got started. They are BIG I would say about 8 inches from end to end. They were $1 each.
Then, I used some jute twine on one and on the other I used baker’s twine. Both of these I found at the dollar store also. Be sure you have plenty of twine however cause this project will take a quite a bit!
Just start on one end with your hot glue gun. Be careful not to burn your fingers. See image below for how to begin.
Keep wrapping and gluing…wrapping and gluing….pop a movie in. This took me a while. I actually went once around the eggs then around them a second time. Cause after one time there were still some gaps…
But after two times around…they were perfect…..
These are going on my spring mantle which I will show y’all tomorrow. I am in love with these twine wrapped Easter eggs and I am sure they will be in my home for years to come. Feel free to mix and match the different twines. You even paint the twine for extra variety!
Cause although the daffodils are gorgeous….I can’t leave the eggs on the sidewalk. 🙂
