These DIY string Easter Eggs can be made with yarn for Yarn Easter Eggs, embroidery thread for Embroidery Thread Easter Eggs, or whatever kind of string you like for DIY string Easter Eggs. I personally used embroidery thread as my string of choice since you can get so many different colors.
What You’ll Need For This DIY Easter Decor Project:

How To Make String Easter Eggs- Embroidery Thread Easter Egg Craft Tutorial
Step 1: Put a generous amount of styroglue on the center of the top of your egg and spread it around thoroughly using a toothpick.
Step 2: Start with the end of your string and lay it on the adhesive in the center. Slowly manipulate it into a small circle. Once you’ve gone around the circle a few times, start pulling tightly while pushing the string down into the egg to stick (you will only need to push down for the tops and bottoms of the egg)
Step 3: Slowly but tightly wrap the embroidery thread around the Easter egg.
Step 4: Once you have enough of a color, use a pair of scissors to snip the embroidery thread and gently but firmly place the thread down on a small dab of styroglue so that it adheres to the egg.
Step 5: Repeat Step 3 and 4 with additional colors. Once you’ve made it half way, you need switch to the other end and start from there until the entire egg is covered.
Ta-da! You’ve made your very own DIY Easter decor. Plus, these embroidery thread DIY string Easter eggs will be a great conversation piece to have on the coffee table this spring and you can reuse them year after year.
