Yarn Covered Easter Eggs:
Yarn covered Easter eggs will add a fun
touch to your Easter table or displayed around the house! You may
purchase paper mache eggs at your local craft store or create homemade
paper mache eggs yourself using balloons, newspaper, and glue. We chose
already made paper mache eggs. After choosing a variety of colors for
your yarn, using Modge Podge, simply glue one end of the yarn to the egg
and begin wrapping the yarn around the egg. You may create stripes,
solids, or even polka dots using the yarn. Use Modge Podge throughout
this process to ensure the yarn sticks to the egg. After creating
stripes, we chose to paint portions of the eggs with acrylic paint.

spotted eggs will add a whimsical touch to the traditional Easter egg.
This process is so fun and will be great for the kids to partake. We
used already made paper mache eggs; however, you may create these
spotted eggs using hard boiled eggs as well. You will need acrylic
paint in a variety of colors and Q-tips. Dip the end of a Q-tip into
the paint and begin "dotting" the eggs all over. Choose another color
and repeat this step. You may choose 2, 3, or even 4 different colors
to create these spotted eggs.
