Spread a thin layer of Tacky Glue over a small section of a plastic egg and attach the yarn. This takes a little practice and can get a bit messy. Use your fingers to snug the strands of yarn against each other. You can glue the yarn in many different patterns, stripes … you can also strand several colors at once. Oh, and I tried to use the glue gun but the glue dried too quickly.

Once the egg is completely covered with yarn, set it out to dry. The beauty of these Easter Eggs is that they last forever!

  3. How creative. These eggs are adorable!
