A holiday is the perfect time to get the kids crafting and decorating the house. This Easter egg wreath is simple and easy to do and looks great.

What you’ll need:

  • Embroidery thread in lots of different colours
  • liquid starch
  • flour
  • water balloons
  • super glue

Method:

1. Blow up the 20 water balloons.

2. Mix 1/2 a cup of flour with 1 cup of liquid starch.

3. Place one skein of thread looped in your mix until all wet.

4. Pull wet thread sliding off excess liquid with your fingers and wrap around one of the water balloons.

5. Repeat until all the balloons are covered.

6. Leave the balloons to dry overnight.

7. Pop the balloons and you will have gorgeous thread egg shapes.

8. Place eggs in a wreath shape and super glue them together; you can use a hot glue gun if you have one.

I think this is so cute and I am definitely going to make one for our house. I think the kids will have fun making it too.

  • This would be great to make with little toy dinosaurs in the middle of the balloon. So they can be like little dinosaurs hatching.

  • My girls wanted to do this the other day, was wondering where online they saw it. But it was normal glue and water they used not super glue for the string and they used waterballons

  • Fantastic idea!

  • Totally tried this over the weekend. It was an epic fail for us. The string got stuck to the balloon. I put it outside to dry and our chocolate eggs inside melted too. EPIC FAIL!
    Next year I’ll be better prepared and do it properly. Lol

  • We don’t normally decorate the home for Easter, but I love these and think they will look beautiful in a bowl on the table!

  • With just 2 of us in the household and no visitors this year, I’m not putting up any decorations or displays. This is a brilliant creation though

  • I’ve been meaning to make these for some time now. They are cute! Mr maker did a birds nest this way by using a bowl instead of a balloon and then put a fake Easter chicken in it.
