Buffalo Check Easter Eggs

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love the simplicity of and charm of the farmhouse style. I was sorting through a random tote bin in my craft room and challenged myself to use as many things as I could in a few quick crafts that day. My craft room is… overstocked well stocked.


Even though these use plastic eggs, these are not going to be reused. The glue in this Easter craft makes these a forever type of thing. That said, because these are so versatile and Buffalo plaid easily goes with any decor, this is craft I will save with the Easter decorations and use year after year. Grab a little plastic egg, some cord, and let’s get started.

Tips to Make Farmhouse Yarn Wrapped Easter Eggs

  • Take time when you’re wrapping the yarn or cord around the plastic eggs. The seal on the eggs can come undone with just a slight amount of pressure. I prefer to glue them (or tape them) in place. It does work without securing anything if you keep the cord taught but not tight.
  • I usually push the hot glue gun pretty hard because it’s one of my favorite ways to assemble quick crafts. In this case, I’d say don’t use hot glue. The plastic and yarn combination just pops off after time and doesn’t form a full bond. Use a craft glue like E6000 that has more hold, even if it does take a bit more time for the glue to set. I like to start one and then start the others while the first sets up.
  • Decorate your eggs any way you like. I kept my Buffalo check accents on the egg to a minimum because with farmhouse decor, it’s often more minimalist.
  • If you don’t have chunky yarn or macrame cording, another idea to keep these in the farmhouse style is to rip up thin pieces of drop cloth or burlap.

These little farmhouse Buffalo plaid Easter eggs go perfectly with a simple display or tucked into a tiered tray. Make them using yarn or cord - this is a very versatile craft you can complete in an afternoon.

Active Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $2


  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • White Cord or Chunky Yarn
  • 1-inch wide Wired Trim Buffalo Check Ribbon
  • 3/8-inch wide Buffalo Check Ribbon


  • E6000 Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Foam Brush
  • Strip of Ric Rac Fabric Trim
  • Straight Pins
  • Parchment Paper


  1. Firmly but lightly wrap each of the plastic eggs with yarn, by starting at one end of the egg (the larger end). Cover the bottom of the egg with enough E6000 to wrap the cord around the egg 4 to 5 times. Place the end of the yarn in the center of the bottom of the egg and start wrapping it around itself.
  2. Continue wrapping the egg until completely covered. Allow the glue dry for approximately 15 minutes before moving on. The glue should hold enough for the egg to be handled, but will still easily pull away from the plastic if you're not gentle.
  3. Cut 3 7-inch long strips of the 1-inch wide buffalo check ribbon and place on the parchment paper. Apply a thin coat of ModPodge onto the ribbon using a foam brush to reduce fraying. Allow the ModPodge to dry completely.
  4. Pin the rick rack trim on top of a ModPodged ribbon strip as a template, then cut the ribbon to match the shape of the rick rack. Remove the rick rack and pins from your newly trimmed wavy strip of ribbon.
  5. Glue the wavy ribbon around the center of a wrapped egg. You can use E600 glue or hot glue.
  6. Tie a small bow using the 3/8-inch wide ribbon and cut the ends into an inverted "v" shape to reduce fraying. Optional, use a match or lighter to burn the ends to prevent fraying.
  7. Glue the bow to the top of the egg and display. photo collage tutorial of how to make buffalo check easter eggs
