Egg String Garland
If you’re looking for a wow-factor Easter craft, look no further than the String Egg Garland to decorate your classroom! Each student can make their very own egg to contribute to a beautiful class garland ready just-in-time for Easter!
What you need:
- Easter-coloured yarn (yellow, pink, purple, soft blue)
- Craft glue
- Sponge paint brush
- Cup or jar
- String egg garland printout (optional)
Blow up the balloon just enough to achieve an egg shape. Stretch the balloon before to avoid it being rounded.
Tie the end of the yarn to the tied piece of your balloon.
Paint a thin layer of glue on the balloon, while keeping it stable in a cup or jar.
Wrap the yarn around the balloon in all different directions to cover most of the surface. You can leave some empty spaces.
Once the yarn is in place, cover the balloon a second time, to soak the yarn completely. This will ensure the egg shape stays in place when you go to pop the balloon.
Wait a full 24 hours to allow the glue to fully dry. Once the glue and yarn are fully dry, use a pin to pop the balloons.
Using the same yarn, run a long piece through each one of the eggs to hang your garland.
