Jute Wrapped Eggs

I keep trying to tell myself that it’s too early to start sharing Easter projects, but then I realized that Easter is only 4 weeks away. AND it is after St. Patrick’s Day. I made these jute wrapped eggs for Easter, but in all honesty they would be nice to have in the house year round. Just place the jute covered eggs into a basket or bowl, and onto the coffee table for an eye catching centerpiece.

Jute Wrapped Eggs

My inspiration came from these jute eggs and letters. To pretty mine up for Easter I added bits of ribbon and ribbon roses. The inspiration eggs were made using a hot glue gun, but I found that clear craft glue worked just fine and didn’t burn my fingers – making this a fun project that the kids can help with.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Paper Mache Eggs (I picked mine up at the craft store.)
Jute Twine (Mine came from Dollar General.)
Clear Craft Glue
Scraps of ribbon, lace, and ribbon roses

Jute Wrapped Eggs


To begin, glue down the jute on the pointy end of an egg. Glue and wrap. Glue and wrap, working your way round the egg, being careful to fill any gaps. Finish off the other end of the egg, and you’re done. Use pieces of lace, ribbons, and ribbon roses to adorn the eggs. On one of mine, I made a jute bow and glued it on.

That’s it. Easy peasy! What projects have you done with jute twine?

    These are so cute! You are right it is a easy peasy project. My daughter would love making these. Thanks for another great craft project!

    This is a very cute project. I think I would tweak this project idea and wrap the paper mache eggs with ribbon instead of jute. Thank you for sharing this great craft idea.

    Those are so cute! I’d even like them with jute only and not the additional flowers and ribbons. Very cute, easy and inexpensive!

    Is jute twine also known as hemp twine? I have never heard of jute and it seems to really resemble hemp. I really like the natural look of this decor!

    So simple and elegant! I just bought some foam eggs wondering how I could dress them up. I’m going to do this, and put them in a nest on a wreath! Thanks for the great idea through Mandy’s Recipe Box link party.

    I have never done any projects with Jute Twine, and if I did I want to make these amazing Wrapped eggs.They are so cute and different and I would put them on my coffee table.

    these are really cute, and with the brown color they remind me of fresh from the farm eggs. And pretty easy to make just with some small brown rope.

    can you use plastic eggs, like the ones you use in easter egg hunts that open to fill, I figured you can just glue the 2 pieces together and then wrap them as you have shown, cause I always have tons of these left over after easter. Love this idea!

    Don’t put your eggs all in one basket unless they are this pretty. These look wonderful. Totally my style. If you have not shared at the Bacon Time linky yet, please do!

    I’m with you I was a lil worried about getting Easter items, crafts out to soon but then I said the heck with it . My motto is if it make u happy than do it. Your idea above is really cute and elegant I would like to make a couple different ones with just 1 main color put in a basket and people could leave it out all year if they wanted,

  12. Lisa R says

    First time I have seen eggs done like this. They look great. I suppose you could use yarn if jute is not available.

  16. says

    Pretty! I love that you made them with simple supplies. Thank you so much for linking up to my party this week, you are today’s Dare to Share Feature of the Day!

    I like this idea! You could do this on cheap little rubber balls, and use for any time of year.
