Does anyone else remember making glue and string eggs over balloons when you were little? Ok, so maybe my childhood was a little more artsy fartsy than most. I remember a big balloon size egg made entirely of string that had a little Easter bunny scene inside. I thought I'd give it a try with what I had on hand and it worked. I used up a roll of twine from the dollar store, a small balloon and clear glue. After covering the balloon with the glue, I wrapped the twine round and round. After it dried overnight on wax paper.... wallah! It is rather delicate so I'm keeping it away from the one man 18 month old wrecking crew in my house but it looks pretty on my mantle.
