We made string eggs this weekend for an easy spring decoration around the house. They turned out so well that we have plans to make more this week. We'll be hanging them on the tree in the front yard for Easter.
Gathering the balloons and embroidery floss:
Blowing up the balloons:
Wrapping the liquid starch soaked embroidery floss around the balloons in layers:
Drying the eggs:
Finished! We let them dry completely over night and then popped the balloon.
We used about 3 skeins of embroidery floss for each egg. The liquid starch was found in the laundry section of our grocery store.
Sweet, aren't they?
