I saw these super cute twine easter eggs the other day and I knew I wanted to do something like this for my Easter/Spring Mantel. They looked cute alone but I want color on the mantel [its so white on its own] so I made these eggs Ombre!
They came out just how I pictured.... Love it when that happens.
They were really simple to make.
Large Plastic Easter Eggs [got these at the $1 store]
Then start tightly wrapping the twine around the egg, try to go slow at first and make the lines even.
Now I started using hot glue in the beginning but after a few rows it got old and messy. I switched to glue dots and they worked much better.
Wrap until the entire egg is covered.
Once your glue dries you are ready to paint. I chose to do pastel pink, blue & green. I did all of the ombre colors the same way.
Started with white and added the pure color [pink, blue & green] just to barely tint the white. Each row I added enough color to change the tint enough to see, but was careful not to go too far with the color.
I painted a little of the egg, stopped and added more color then painted more. [repeat, repeat, repeat]
I didn't take more pictures of this process because my fingers had paint on them. It was a little messy :)
Probably my favorite piece of Easter Decor so far....
Have a great weekend!
