In this tutorial, we will show you how to make three different, natural looking eggs for your Easter decorations, home decor, or woodland themed party. The first egg is covered in sheet moss, the second is covered in loose moss, and the third is wrapped in baker's twine.
The first step for all three eggs is the same: cover the styrofoam egg with double-sided tape. Make sure to press the tape down so that it lies flat against the egg.
For the sheet moss egg, you will want to start by cutting your moss into strips.
Then, wrap one strip of moss around the egg and press into place. Be careful not to overlap otherwise your egg will look bumpy. Cut another strip and wrap from the top of the egg to the edge of the moss on the bottom.
After you have repeated this process on the other side of the egg, cut four squares of moss to cover the middle sections of the egg, and 8 triangles to fill in the remaining spaces.
For the loose moss egg, secure the tape by tying one end of twine or hemp around the egg. Then, begin by taking a small handful of moss and lay it across the tape.
Wrap the loose end of the twine over your moss to secure it to the egg. Continue this process until the whole egg is covered.
Cover any bare spots with moss, and wrap with the twine to secure. Once the egg is completely covered, tie a knot in the end of the twine. Insert a pin through the knot to secure it into the egg.
Lastly, the baker's twine egg! Once you've finished taping it, begin decorating by wrapping twine in a circle at the bottom of the egg.
Continue wrapping the twine, pushing up against the edge of the previous previous wrap to completely cover the egg. If you choose to change colors, finish off the color you are using by bending the twine down flat against the egg, then cut.
Feel free to add a small drop of tacky glue to completely seal the transition spots.
