How to Make Twinkle Egg Lights.

1. Separate the plastic egg halves.

If they are connected by a hinge, cut the hinge off and smooth where it was connected.

2. Using the bottom half of the egg, run a narrow strip of double sided tape around the top just below where the top half connects.

3. Choose a contrasting color of bakers twine.

Starting at the back where the hinge was, lay the bakers twine along the top edge of the tape, pressing down as you go.

The twine goes on easily – just stretch a little as you work, holding down the end already attached and press the twine onto the tape.

Go around the egg half with the twine 3 or 4 times until the tape is covered, ending in the back where you started.

4. Make a craft foam base to keep the egg upright.

Cut 1 3/4 inch squares or 2 inch diameter circles from craft foam scraps.

Tips.

Use lots of fun colors for this craft, and mix and match the egg holders with the egg halves.

The really thin craft foam doesn’t work as well for this project.
