This Scrapbook Paper and Twine Wrapped Easter Egg Craft is so fun! These creative and unique craft Easter eggs will be the perfect addition to your Easter table as well as seasonal décor that you can use all throughout your home! In this DIY we will be creating 4 different types of Easter eggs—scrapbook paper eggs, gold cord wrapped eggs, twine wrapped eggs, and raffia Mod Podge eggs. Each of these eggs are very tactile in nature while adding different colors and textures to your table.
Step 1: The first type of egg we are going to make is a scrapbook paper egg. Start by painting DIY Easter Eggs with acrylic paint. I used the colors Key West, Nutmeg Brown and Pure Gold. Allow paint to dry completely.
Step 2: Next, pick patterns and small details from your scrapbook paper pages that you would like to incorporate on your eggs. Look for coordinating colors and patterns that would work well in a repetitive way on the egg.
Step 3: Apply Mod Podge directly the surface of the egg where you will be adding a scrapbook detail. Next, place the scrapbook paper on top of the Mod Podge and, using a paintbrush, apply more Mod Podge all over the paper to hold in in place. Repeat this step until you have covered your egg with all of the scrapbook details that you would like. Then, allow the Mod Podge to dry completely.
Step 4: Now we are going to made a gold cord wrapped egg. Start by tying a knot at the end of your Gold Stretchy Cording. Attach this knot to the bottom of a DIY Easter Egg with hot glue.
Step 5: Start winding the gold cord around the knot in a spiral motion. Apply small amounts of hot glue as you go, securing the cord in place.
Step 6: Once you get to the middle of the egg, cut the gold cord and hot glue the end to the egg. Then, flip the egg over and tie a new knot and glue it to the top of the egg. Then, repeat the same process and start winding the gold cord around the knot in a spiral motion until it meets in the middle of the egg.
Step 7: When the two ends of your gold cord wrapped egg meet in the middle, your egg is done! I love the texture of this egg!
Step 8: Similar to the gold cord wrapped egg, we are now going to make a twine wrapped egg. Start with the teal shade of Hemp Cording and tie a knot at the end. Hot glue the knot to the bottom of a DIY Easter Egg just like you did in Step 4.
Step 9: Wind the teal hemp cord around the knot in a spiral motion. Apply small amounts of hot glue as you go to secure the cord in place.
Step 10: Once you reach the middle of the egg, cut the teal hemp cord and glue the end to the egg. Then repeat the process from Step 8 using the cream shade of Hemp Cording. Once you reach the middle of the egg, glue the end of the cream hemp cord to the egg.
Step 11: Now, cut 9 long pieces of the Gold Stretchy Cording and tie them together. Sectioning them in 3 groups of 3 cords each, braid the gold cord together.
Step 12: Hot glue the gold braid around the middle of the egg. If your braid is a little longer, you can even wrap it around the egg twice. Your twine wrapped egg is now done. What a unique egg!
Step 13: The next egg we are going to make is a raffia Mod Podge egg. Start by cutting strips of your Raffia Ribbon.
Step 14: Apply Mod Podge all over your DIY Easter Egg. Then, start wrapping your strips of raffia all around the egg. Continue to apply Mod Podge as you go.
Step 15: Wrap the Raffia Ribbon in all different directions until the entire egg is covered. Then, allow the Mod Podge to dry completely.
Step 16: Our last egg is going to combine a few of the techniques that I’ve described in the steps above. Start with a DIY Easter Egg that you have painted. Then cut strips of raffia. Also, find a small scrapbook paper detail that you would like to incorporate.
Step 17: Start to wrap the raffia around the egg as you did in Step 14. This time, do not fully cover the egg. Allow areas of the painted portion of the egg to be seen. Then, attach the scrapbook paper design on top of the raffia and affix it in place with Mod Podge.
Now all of our eggs are done! What a unique assortment! I love the variety in colors and textures. Display the eggs by themselves on your table or place them inside DIY Woodland Bird Nests.
