Easy Yarn Easter Eggs

Having little boy makes the holidays alot more fun!!!   I get excited to decorate our home for the holidays.   I have been wanting to make these Easy Yarn Easter Eggs since last Easter and well this year I finally got around to making to them.

They were beyond easy to make and alot of fun!  I combined them into 3 easy steps.

Easy Step 1:  Purchase Sta-flo liquid starch,  I got it at Walmart in the laundry isle $3.50, purchase water balloons $1.00, Embroidery floss .33 each (I used one entire floss per egg)

Easy Step #2  Mix 1 cup liquid starch and 1 cup flour in your blender and combine until smooth.  While you are blending away, blow up your water balloons up to your desired sizes. (note: NOT to use water you will ruin your egg)   I did a variety of large, medium and small.  In a wide bowl pour mixture.  Unravel your thread and gently place on top of mixture covering all the string.  Making sure to keep the end in reach.

Easy Step #3  Grab your string and start wrapping it all around your balloon.  Using as much or as little string as you want.  When your are done with your masterpiece, place some wax paper on the counter and place balloon egg on top to dry.  I needed about 1 full day to dry.   I did have to move the egg around to make sure all sides got dried.   Now the fun part.  Pop your balloon and very carefully pull out the balloon through the cracks of your string.

Now display your eggs proudly on your counter in a bowl or basket,  grab some more thread and turn them into garland.    I have heard of placing candy inside your balloon then when you pop them you have a fun surprise inside.  I have heard though when you pop your balloon your ballon covers the candy making it impossible to remove.   So if you wanted to use candy when you are wrapping your string leave a small opening and when the egg is completely done add in the candy.
