Easter craft: Lovely and Loopy

Lovely and Loopy

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

With this method, young artists can festoon eggs with tangles of swirls. To create our layered look, we used several colors of embroidery floss.

Materials

  • Blown white egg
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge
  • 3-foot lengths of embroidery floss
  • Chopstick or skewer
  • Drinking glass

Instructions

  1. Working on one area of the egg at a time, paint the surface with Mod Podge, then press on loops of one color of embroidery floss. Gently brush a second coat of Mod Podge over the loops.
  2. Turn the egg and repeat until the egg is covered with loops. Place the egg on a chopstick or skewer in a drinking glass and let it dry thoroughly.
  3. Using the same technique, add lengths of embroidery floss in contrasting colors, one at a time.
