Tuesday Tutorial: Easter Nests Made Out of Yarn
How are your Easter crafts going? Today I want to show you how to create your own Easter nests made out of yarn.
For this craft you will need:
- Some yarn
- A balloon
- Chocolate eggs to fill the basket
- Fake grass for the finished baskets.
- Design Freezer (A glue that “Freezes” things how you want them to be)
First blow up the balloon to the required size:
Take the yarn and wrap it haphazardly around the balloon:
Fasten at the balloon closure.
Using the Design Freezer, drench the yarn.
Using a piece of extra yarn, make a tie at the edge of the
balloon and hang over the bath until dry.
Once dry, the balloon will be very brittle.
Using Scissors, pop the balloon and remove from inside the yarn.
Now cut along the middle of the yarn balloon to create two halves:
Fill the halves with grass and eggs galore!
And there you have a wonderful, original Easter nest.
