A DIY Twine Easter

Happy Friday!

I don’t know how things are where you live, but I’ve got a serious case of spring fever. This week has turned so pretty here. The weather has been in the 70’s all week. And the cherry trees that line many of our streets are in full bloom. I am so ready, my friends! Ready for warmth and sunshine and flowers. So when my crafty buddies suggested trying out some spring crafts this past week, well……..I was all about that.

I love twine. I know that sounds silly to say, but I really do. I dig the natural, rustic look to it, and I think it looks good with just about anything I want to mix it with. And hey, I love brown, so what can I say?

My friend, Paige, came across an adorable twine-wrapped bunny on Pinterest, and we were instantly inspired. I’m always a little intimidated by making my own animal forms, but we happily set about wading and twisting up newspaper and masking tape to create our own silly bunny shapes. And then we went to town wrapping up the twine.

Wrapping that entire bunny was a true lesson in patience, but I love how it came out. And I have to say, I was kind of hooked. So as soon as I got home, I looked around for something else to wrap in twine.

Eggs would be perfect. I mean, what a fabulous way to upcycle some of those old plastic Easter eggs I still have lying around, right? So I started wrapping…

And wrapping…

And of course that led to some spring decorating. You know how that goes.

Those eggs just look good tucked pretty much anywhere.

  1. My oh my you created the shaped bunny yourself?? Audrey it’s fatastic! I love this cutie in twine and dressed up with that gorgoeus bow. (Love that stripe in orange; so spring-y!) Your eggs are perfect. How did you get the twine so perfectly adhered? And your decorating is always jawdropping gorgeous! You definitely are experiencing spring. We just got rid of frost in the early morning. I am ready for blossoms, sun and fresh green. Send me some spring please 🙂

  2. Wow, Audrey… perfection!!! I love your rabbit and the eggs are fabulous… I can’t see my hands pulling this off, though. I think this is one of your projects I’ll have to pass on, and enjoy just looking at yours. Love them!!!!
    Have a great weekend, my friend!

  3. Woozer Audrey!
    i love that look and that pretty yellow ribbon is the perfect final touch on that cute bunny.
    I love the modernity mixed with a “rustic” style
    Thanks!

  4. That bunny is adorable! I thought at first that you just used a store bought form from a big box store, but you MADE the bunny form too!! How cool is that?!! Those eggs look awesome also all wrapped up in twine!

  5. Eeeep! I don’t blame you for loving the look of twine. It’s rather comforting with it’s homespun feeling. The bunny is absolutely precious and you’ve made me want to break out all my old plastic Easter eggs and wrap. LOL Hugs!

  6. Great Job! what type of twine did you use? how did you attach it? white glue or hot glue? I would love to see a tutorial. I would love to see you wrapping the bunny & eggs just so I could see hoe you did it. Please send me a link if you do….o.k.

    • Hi Bonnie! I used twine from my local hardware store, actually… and then I used a combo of Aleene’s Tacky Glue and Therm O Web Zots glue dots to adhere the twine.
