"BIG" eggs/baskets just in time for Easter!

 I have a friend on Facebook who had made cute Easter baskets. When I saw them I  thought they would be cute as decorations. You start with a balloon, whatever size you would like your egg
I rolled the balloon in the liquid starch first and then started wrapping it with the string. There is  really is no right or wrong way to the wrapping the balloon. Depending on how you want your egg to look is how much string you use. I used one roll per egg.




After wrapping the whole balloon roll it around in the liquid starch. After you have soaked the balloon put the balloon on a cup and let it dry overnight. This project is a little messy .....so beware. After the the string is fully dry pop the balloon and you have your egg!!

As you can tell they are pretty big!!




Super cute baskets our friends made......just cut out the middle add some lace....so cute:)




Enjoy !!!

    1. Liquid starch you can find at any grocery store. (Walmart) by the laundry soap. I hear you can use watered down elmers glue. Good Luck and thanks for looking :)
