String Easter Eggs

The idea behind these fun and festive decorations belongs to Crafty Endeavor, a fun and adorable blog.  Here's what I did to make my own:

I used:
  • Water balloons
  • Fabric stiffener
  • Embroidery floss

Simply blow up your balloons, drape the string in a bowl of the fabric stiffener, squeeze out the excess, and wrap your balloon!

Allow your string to dry completely before popping and removing the balloon, and voila!
I did a group of pastel eggs for myself, and I made a set of neutral eggs and a set of jewel tone eggs for gifts.

A few useful tips:
  • Blow up all of your balloons ahead of time
  • Drape your string carefully- I found that spiraling the embroidery floss worked well- it will help prevent knots
  • If you DO get a knot that you can't undo, simply snip the knot out and continue wrapping the string around the balloon
 Big thanks to Alissa at Crafty Endeavor for the inspiration!!
