I have made a few sets of these spring eggs this past week and I really like the way they turned out.
I used the cheap plastic Easter eggs to make them. Before I wrapped them in twine, I glued the eggs shut and spray painted them brown in case of little gaps in the twine. I'd hate to see bright pink shining through.
When they were ready, I started out the twine by gluing the beginning of the twine to the top of the egg. I let it dry so that the twine was secured. Then I was able to start wrapping the twine around the egg, gluing as I went.
Once it was wrapped, I added the embellishments, such as lace, buttons, raffia and lace flowers. I always find a way to use a brown paper tag. I think they are so cute on things. For these eggs, I stamped the word "JOY" on them.
Here they are ready for market.
