"Here's a great way to make something adorable out of those cheap plastic eggs you see at Easter time - a twine wrapped egg holder! Perfect in table settings for breakfast, brunch or entertaining! And the best part, you can use a variety of colorful threads - jute, baker's twine, hemp, yarn and even embroidery floss - plus ribbon or trim for any season or holiday! What a fabulous way to dress of a table setting!"

Materials List

  • Plastic Eggs
  • Twine
  • Fabri-Tac Fabric Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue


  1. Open a large plastic egg into two pieces.

  2. Place a hefty amount of a quick-grab glue that dries clear in the center of one of the half eggs.

  3. Grab the end of the twine and begin twirling it around in a circle and place down on top of the glue, holding in place until secure and doesn't move ( a few seconds).

  4. Begin twirling the twine around the egg, adding glue periodically along the bottom of the twine and plastic.

  5. Be sure to wrap the twine as close together as possible, while keeping the rows evenly pushed together.

  6. Continue wrapping and gluing the half egg until reaching the end. Then cut twine at an angle to blend in and secure the end with more glue.

  7. Repeat the same steps for wrapping the other half egg.

  8. Make a braid trim by measuring around the widest portion of one of the halves doubling the amount plus 3-4 inches extra. Then cut six strands of that measurement, tying the ends together in a knot. Divide the strands into three groups of two and begin loosely braiding the strands.

  9. Measure the finished braid around the edges of the half eggs. Saturate the braided ends with glue to prevent unraveling when cut and let dry. Cut braid at an angle to fit and glue in place for both pieces.

  10. Place the smaller egg portion on a flat surface, bottom up, and hot glue the larger egg portion centered on top, for an adorable egg holder!

NotesTie a ribbon into a bow around the middle for a decorative look!
