Looking for some magical Easter egg decorations on a budget? Get the whole family crafting and learn how to make these fun and colourful cobweb eggs. Simple to create and using just three items, they're sure to make Easter eggs-tra special.

Check out our easy how-to video now:

You will need:

  • PVA glue

  • Balloons

  • Embroidery thread

Method:

  1. In a large shallow bowl, mix a glue solution of one part PVA glue to one part water.
     
  2. Gradually add the embroidery thread in a circular motion to avoid getting it tangled. Make sure to leave a small piece of thread hanging out the side of the bowl so that you can easily grab it later.
     
  3. Ensure that the thread is completely covered in the glue. You can do this by patting the thread with a spoon.
     
  4. Partly inflate a balloon to the size you want your cobweb egg and hold it with one hand over the bowl.
     
  5. Grabbing the end of the thread, place it under your index finger on the balloon to hold in place and begin winding the PVA-soaked thread around the balloon. Create a web by twisting the balloon as you go and changing direction often.
     
  6. Peg the cobweb egg somewhere safe to dry, leaving it for 48 hours.
     
  7. Once dry, carefully burst the balloon within the egg with scissors, removing the balloon reminants through the holes. Violá, perfect egg shaped cobwebs!
     
  8. Want to fill them with goodies? Cut a small hole in the base and fill with mini treats for a truly magical Easter.
