Colourful Easter Egg Wreath
Spring is coming and one of my favourite holidays of this season is, if course, Easter. I begin to prepare well in advance every year. There`re a lot of interesting ideas how to decorate your home for this high day and in this project we`re going to make beautiful Easter egg wreath.
Let`s get started!
Things you need:
- a lot of embroidery floss, about 20 to 25 skeins, in lovely pastel colors.
- 1/2a cup of all purpose flour
- 1 cup Sta-Flo liquid starch
- balloons (water or full sized)
Carefully put one skein of embroidery floss into the starchy mixture by unraveling it into the mixture in nice loops . Resist the urge to just throw it in, or it will become a gloppy mess.
Blow up your balloons.
Working over wax pepper, begin to wrap the floss around one balloon, using your fingers to pull off excess liquid as you go. Make it go through two tightly pinched fingers before it makes its way on to the balloon. One skein will go perfectly around one balloon.Place the wrapped balloon on a piece of wax paper and allow to dry over night. In the morning, flip all the eggs over and let them finish drying for a few hours.
Once the embroidery floss is completely dry, pop the balloons. Carefully remove the balloons from the inside of the egg.
Set a bowl on wax paper and use it as a guiding shape to form to circles around with the eggs, hot gluing them together as you go. It helps to form the wreath completely, arrange the colors how you want them, and then remove one egg at a time to glue it in.
