The materials used for this project are:
Twine, Jute or string
These eggs are very easy and very quick to make. It's a great craft to do with children and they will love decorating their egg with buttons, bits of felt, beads, sequins - anything you can get your hands on. It is just a matter of wrapping the twine around an egg that has been lightly coated in glue (although, PVA glue and I are not the best of friends and it can get a bit sticky).
It's a bit like knitting a pair of socks - the first row is always the trickiest so hang in there.
Once the egg is wrapped, there are an unlimited number of ways that you can finish it off.

A few years ago, a lady I used to work with gave me a few spools of Semco crochet cotton and I decided that this would be perfect for a bit of colour around the egg.
I was deliberately casual when I wrapped the colour as I wanted a 'homely' look. The cotton is threaded through 3 buttons to give some dimension and the end of the thread is held in place with a little dab of PVA.
