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
Scissors
Scraps of ribbon, lace, and ribbon roses

Jute Wrapped Eggs

Instructions:

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?

  32. Cynthia R says:

  37. These are wonderful!

  38. nicole dz says:

    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!

  39. These are so pretty!! I hadn’t seen the cardboard eggs like that. I need to find them!

    I hopped over from Worthwhile Wednesdays.

  40. 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!

  41. These are adorable and so easy to make. You could even use different colors of string for added variety!

  42. These are adorable! Now I have to convince my husband I should go to the craft store…

  43. Stopping by from The Wednesday Roundup. A big thank you for joining our party and sharing this beautiful craft! I love the look of the jute! ~Angela @ LeMoine Family Kitchen

    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,

  46. You did a wonderful job on these adorable wrapped eggs. I like that they are rustic looking, yet so pretty with the flowers, ribbons and lace.

  47. They came out beautiful. Thank god they are paper mache cause you said all year round and I thought that that would be awful to smell

  61. i like these jute wrapped eggs. they are totally different. they would make beautiful eggs for the Easter holiday for decorations on the table. really look classy.

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