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.
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
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?
