Plastic Egg = Yarn Egg

Plastic Easter Egg

Glue (I used Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue)

Paint Brush (optional)



1.  Glue the two pieces of the egg together.

2.  Starting at the top, apply glue and wrap the yarn neatly around the egg.  Because the yarn I chose was thick, I didn’t use the paint brush to apply the glue.  If you use a thinner yarn, you may want to spread out the glue with the paint brush.  Also, I made a hole in the top and bottom of the egg (with a nail and hammer) and poked the ends into the hole to give my egg a neater start and finish.

2.  Continue apply glue and wrapping the egg until done.

3.  Imagine the possibilities!  You can wrap old, plastic eggs with anything and get new decor eggs to scatter around the house or fill a bowl.

    Now I’m going to have an excuse to go out and get some of those plastic eggs! That’s a great idea!

      This was a fun project! In fact, I enjoyed making the first egg so much that I finished it up and realized I hadn’t taken any pictures for the step-by-step instructions; so I had to make another one. I made one tonight wrapped in jute…like the “inspiration” eggs. There’s just something therapeutic about neatly wrapping yarn around an egg.
