You can also use an assortment of yarn to make some decorative Easter eggs. This is a great idea for a fun craft project to do with young children.
The key to making yarn Easter eggs is stiffening the yarn. A solution of water and sugar will be used for this part of the process. You will need to heat the mixture to ensure the sugar is completely dissolved as this is crucial. If the yarn does not stiffen, then the humidity in your home may be too high. You need to be in a dry environment to have the yarn stiffen correctly.
You will be using balloons to create the shape of your yarn Easter eggs. If you are familiar with how to wrap paper mache around a balloon, then this project is somewhat similar. The size of balloon that you choose to use for this project will dictate the size of the Easter egg.
Placing candies inside yarn Easter eggs is a great way to use these items as a gift. You can easily create a variety of eggs in less than an hour. However, you need to wait at least 12 hours for the solution used on the yarn to fully dry.
