Being a preschool teacher, I have quite a collection of these plastic Easter eggs! They are great for activities for the little one’s but as far as a unique décor piece – these eggs could use a makeover.
When I came across this idea on Pinterest from Design Dining + Diapers I had to make them!
I already had some twine on hand and glue gun as well as a wide assortment of plastic eggs, so this did not cost us anything extra – except for some time well spent and well worth the effort.
Glue gun + sticks
Plastic Easter eggs
Small lace fabric
Begin by squeezing glue in a row around the egg one strand at a time and wrapping the twine around the eggs. I started at the middle and did half and then continued with the other half. Found it was easier to control – and let’s be honest if it didn’t end up looking great I could cover it up with some fabric).
It did take some time and some patience, but now these decorated eggs can be used again and again. *Glue gets extremely hot – so be careful!*
Add a strand of lace (this was from dollar store as well in their crafts aisle) around the centre to complete the eggs.
Place the eggs in a bird’s nest. I actually have quite a few of these nests on hand from my classroom as well – they had sparkly and glittery (yes, the glitter was everywhere but totally worth removing for this look) birds and eggs already glued on. I took them off and used the nest for these twine eggs.
I found this cute printable from Landeelu and placed it in a wooden frame from the Dollar Store as well.
So cute and adds a natural nature-like vibe to the décor!
