Twine Ombre Easter Eggs

I saw these super cute twine easter eggs the other day and I knew I wanted to do something like this for my Easter/Spring Mantel. They looked cute alone but I want color on the mantel [its so white on its own] so I made these eggs Ombre!

They came out just how I pictured…. Love it when that happens.

They were really simple to make.

First you’ll need to apply hot glue [or plain glue] to the top of the egg.

Then start tightly wrapping the twine around the egg, try to go slow at first and make the lines even.

Now I started using hot glue in the beginning but after a few rows it got old and messy. I switched to glue dots and they worked much better.

Wrap until the entire egg is covered.

Once your glue dries you are ready to paint. I chose to do pastel pink, blue & green. I did all of the ombre colors the same way.

Started with white and added the pure color [pink, blue & green] just to barely tint the white. Each row I added enough color to change the tint enough to see, but was careful not to go too far with the color.

I painted a little of the egg, stopped and added more color then painted more. [repeat, repeat, repeat]

I didn’t take more pictures of this process because my fingers had paint on them. It was a little messy :)
