You will need a couple of plastic Easter eggs, twine, wired twine (for the ears and legs), and a hot glue gun. This is a fun Easter decor craft to do while listening to your favorite book or when watching easy-to-follow shows.

Twine Wrapped Easter Eggs: Bunny and Chick
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I like to add holiday decor tucked into my existing pieces. This year, I created a pastel scene for one of my end tables and decided it needed something without much color to go along with it.
Looking around my craft room, Dollar Tree plastic eggs were plentiful, as was Dollar Tree twine in various forms. I figured why not try and come up with something to use up what I had on hand, and this fun Easter DIY popped into my head. It’s a bit time-consuming, to wrap with the thin twine, but they look amazing.

Tips for Making These Farmhouse Easter Eggs Wrapped in Twine
- Paint and Prep – Paint the brightly-colored plastic eggs after you get the ears and legs put on but before you start wrapping them in twine. The color will show through, so I chose Waverly’s Elephant chalk paint and applied it with a foam brush.
- Wired Twine – I found wired twine at the Dollar Tree but wired twine is also available here online. It’s strong enough to hold a large plastic egg weighted with a couple of rocks for stability.
- Plastic Eggs – Do not try to use the wood craft eggs because they are much too heavy for the wired twine. If you want to drill into them, however, they will work.
- Glue Gun – I recommend using this detail tip glue gun for these twine wrapped eggs. I love mine and everyone always asks about it in my YouTube videos.
- Finger Guards or Mask Applicator – In the video and images below, you will see that I try to keep my fingers away from the egg as much as I can. The little silicone face mask applicators are now a staple in my craft room.
- Twine Bunny Egg – The bunny shaped Easter egg is too cute and easy to make. I added a cork bottom to mine for increased stability because it was going on an end table. If you’re adding these to a dough bowl display, you can leave that off.
- Twine Chick Egg – To make the twine-wrapped chick egg stand, you must not forget to add a couple of small rocks to weight the bottom center. Secure them with glue so they cannot move around.
- Heat Gun – To remove any hot glue strings and melt to blend hot glue blobs, use a heat gun on the finished projects.
