Don’t get started on decorating for Easter before you’re done reading this tutorial. Learn in a quick step by step way how to give a unique DIY touch to your home décor and have fun in the meantime. Easter egg made with different strings, which you can use to decorate a vase or bowl, on the table or under the mirror. To achieve this nice piece of ornament, grab these materials:

Now you can decorate your home with a bunch of these little marvels of handmade. Put a string through a bunch and hang on the mirror or on a window bay.
can you tell me which glue is needed?
There are several types of craft glue that will work, but plain Elmer’s white school glue does a lovely job, and is very inexpensive!
What is the ratio of glue to water?
Half glue, Half water
why dont you use whatever type of glue you have in your city or town?
They said craft glue so probably Elmer’s glue would work fine. Also they said cornstarch can be used. I’m gonna give them a shot.
50/50 water and glue or just a splash of water and ton of glue???thanks!

You indicated “water” balloon . . but you really just meant small balloon, right?
No water… unless you’re a masochist…
If you are using Elmer’s glue then add some water to it for Elmer’s is very thick. I’ve made these at school last year with the students and they loved them.
My friend just tried this with Mod Podge. Balloon popped. HUGE mess. HUGE. She posted pictures on facebook. Be careful and maybe work with your hands inside a box in the garage, similar to how you would protect the area when spray painting.
What is the best yarn/string to use?
Water balloons do break very easily, I’m sure you could use plain balloons.
Any kind of yarn but I have found that embroidery floss is much prettier and you get a wider selection without have to buy such a large skein, and embroidery floss has a glossier finish to it. We have even thought of doing something like it for Christmas ornaments.
Hi, when using the cornstarch for glue what quantities should be used? Thank you.
Great project though found it really difficult to get a creme egg into the water balloon so used 3 or 4 mini eggs which worked really well.
I made those years ago and I used sugar and warm water to melt the sugar and wrapped it around a blowed up balloons ?
I have attempted easter eggs sta-flo balloons ECT none of any attempt have they turned out at all! Very disappointed videos make it look so quick and simple. All of an.
