Striped Easter Eggs

Striped Easter Eggs Using Friendship Bracelet String by virginiasweetpea.com

 

Have you started to decorate for Easter?  This weekend I pulled out my Easter boxes and got a good start.  After the cold winter we’ve had, it’s nice to make the house look like spring even if it is not quite warm outside.  Even though I have boxes of Easter things, I still enjoy making new things to use for my Easter decorating.  This weekend I made striped Easter eggs using Styrofoam eggs and friendship bracelet string that my friend Suzanne found while thrift shopping.  I love having friends who keep their eye open for supplies for me!

Supplies for Friendship Bracelet Eggs

 

One package of friendship bracelet string made exactly one egg.  It was like this string was meant for my project!

I started by applying a generous amount of Mod Podge to one end of the egg with a small paint brush.  Press the end of the floss into the egg just a bit and wind the string around the starting point.  After winding the string for a few turns, use the paint brush to coat the string in Mod Podge.  This will help it to stay in play and will seal it to the egg.

How to Make Friendship Bracelet Eggs

 

Continue to brush Mod Podge onto the egg and to wind the string around and around.  The friendship bracelet string creates a striped Easter egg!

Friendship Bracelet Eggs - How to

 

Allow the eggs to completely dry before using them for decorating.

Striped Easter Eggs in McCoy Planter

 

I nestled my striped Easter eggs into an antique McCoy planter filled with shredded brown tissue paper.  I love this brown filler for Easter decorating.

Not only do these striped Easter eggs look pretty in a bowl, they also look nice displayed individually.

I’m so glad that Suzanne thought of me when she saw this package of friendship bracelet string at one of our favorite thrift shops!  I’m sure to enjoy using my new striped Easter eggs for many years to come.
