How to make an Easter egg-basket
Things you need:
• a balloon in a color contrasting with the yarn
• a large thread spool
• wood glue
• a brush
• a base (e.g. a bowl)
• a marker
#1 Do up an inflated balloon and wrap the yarn around it
#2 Make sure you wrap it all up so that the balloon can’t be seen through it
#3 Pour the glue into a dish and apply it onto the yarn with a brush
#4 After applying a thick layer of the glue let it all dry for 48 hours
#5 When the yarn gets really stiff, cut the tip of the balloon to release the air
#6 Mark the shape you will cut out
#7 Cut out the hole
#8 Take out the balloon and the cut out piece will be used as a stand under the basket
#9 Glue the basket to the stand and that’s it!
#10 The only thing left to do is to put all the eggs and bunnies inside. ABC easy, isn’t it?
