Easter Egg and Twinery Twine

Hi Everybody today is my Exclusive day at The Twinery. I have made a project that we used to make for the farmers market.. We would make it out of Yarn but I have made it with Twine!!!


I have used all bright pretty colors of The Twinery Twine Caribbean, Lilac, Pink Sorbet, Lemon drop, Pea pod, Maraschino, and Mandarin. A balloon, and corn starch mixture.


I covered the Twinery Twine with cornstarch and wrapped it around the balloon. Let the balloon dry for 24 hours. After it is dry poke a small hole at the top so the balloon deflates slowly. 


I cut around a egg shape.. added a bit of lace to have a finished look.. Filled with goodies and topped off with a beautiful pink ribbon... Ta Da..
