How To Make Easy Thread Wrapped Paper Easter Eggs
I like to crochet. I used to make a lot of doilies. I made this pink and white one. At a yard sale I found a bunch of doily thread. Then I had a baby.
(I made this one without a pattern, by looking at another smaller one and counting the stitches!)
You can imagine how I didn't crochet much anymore. I still do occasionally. And I have a TON of doily thread.
I decided that I wanted to make Thread Wrapped Eggs for this Upcycle Challenge. But I didn't have enough eggs and that is where the upcycle comes in!
Start with any paper... except newspaper would probably rub the ink off onto the thread so I would avoid that. I used brown packing paper.
1
Roll the paper into an egg shape. Use another egg to gauge the size. Then start wrapping the thread around the paper.
2
Remember that it will get bigger with the added thread, so start your paper eggs on the small side.
3
Keep turning and wrapping the egg until no paper shows through. Use a small crochet hook to weave in the end. No glue needed!
4
You could use tape to hold your paper shape, but I didn't. Masking tape would probably work well if you wanted to use it.
I want to make a wreath eventually, using my thread wrapped eggs.
It was so much fun wrapping these eggs! They were fast to make, although not as fast as this hyperlapse video! πŸ˜ƒ
Besides the peach one, I made another paper egg. Can you guess which one it is?
I also had a few foam eggs that were larger than the others.
So for this Upcycle Challenge --- I upcycled-- paper into Eggs!! 🀣 Do you think it is as funny as I think it is?!
I put my eggs in this beautiful flower basket that I found at a thrift store, until I use them for a wreath, that is.
