Pinspiration - string art eggs

With Easter this coming weekend, you may want to come up with some new decorations or a good craft for the kids.

This one can get a little messy, but spread out some aluminum foil or wax paper to protect your work space.


What you need:

- embroidery floss
- small balloons
- adhesive

First off, pick an adhesive. You can mix 1 cup of liquid starch with half a cup of flour or dilute some white glue.

Blow up your balloons to be about the size of a real egg, or a little bigger.

Run your embroidery floss through your liquid, messy adhesive and wrap generously around the balloon.

You'll need let this sit overnight.

Pop your balloon and pull it through and opening to reveal your String Art Egg!

Here are some fun ideas of what to do with the eggs:
- Run yard or embroidery floss through the eggs, and you have garland.
- You can do the same thing with string lights, to brighten up your crafty garland.
- Simply throw a few in a bowl for a centerpiece, or squeeze a piece of candy in the balloon before you blow it up and when you pop it, you'll have a string-wrapped sweet treat.
