Step 1: Find what you need

Step 2: Add your first colour of yarn

Step 3: Add a second colour of yarn

Step 4: Continue wrapping the egg

Helpful Tips:

  1. Make sure the yarn on the top of the egg doesn’t pop off as you wrap. Keep pushing the yarn down as you work, or do the egg in sections, waiting a few minutes for each part to dry before moving on.
  2. Use one colour of yarn as a base for the egg and then create decorations on the egg with a second layer of yarn. Try making zigzag stripes or small polka dots!

What type of egg is used to make these yarn Easter eggs?

We used plastic eggs (bought at the dollar store), but you could also use an egg made from paper mache, wood, or styrofoam. You can also use a blown out egg shell if you’re careful while wrapping it.

What yarn is best for making yarn Easter eggs?

We used worsted weight (medium, 4) yarn to make our yarn wrapped eggs. But you can also use chunky yarn, which will give a fuzzier look and require fewer wraps around the egg.

For a different look you could even wrap the egg with twine or macrame cord!

What’s the best glue for these yarn Easter eggs?

We used turbo tacky glue, which dries even quicker than regular tacky glue. It’s thicker than white school glue and it keeps things in place really well as you work.

If you try using regular white glue, everything will slide around as you work. So if you have tacky glue, we definitely recommend using it.

You could also use hot glue, adding a few dots around the egg for the yarn to stick on.

How many times should I wrap each yarn colour around the egg?

The number of times you wrap each colour of yarn around the egg depends on the pattern you want to make. You can wrap each colour 2, 3, or 4 times — or create any combination of colours you want.

You can even start wrapping the yarn on the side of the egg, creating a diagonal pattern. You’ll have to be more careful while wrapping eggs with a diagonal pattern, since the yarn is more prone to sliding off.

Can these yarn Easter eggs be filled?

If you’re careful while gluing the yarn onto the egg you can definitely fill these yarn wrapped Easter eggs. Start wrapping at the middle of the egg, just above or below the opening.

Place the glue very close to the seam, but not on the seam. Work your way up (or down) the egg like usual. Then use a new piece of yarn to cover the rest of the egg. Make sure the pieces of yarn at the center are close to one another without being glued together.

Then once the glue has dried you can fill your Easter egg with chocolate eggs, candies, or little toys.
