Thread-Wrapped Easter Eggs

To make Easter eggs truly enticing, stripe them with a few loops of thread.

One simple way to give Easter eggs a crafty, homespun look: Add a bold stripe to dyed eggs with neon thread.

Hold the loose end of a spool of thread against the egg with your finger, and wrap the spool around the egg, securing the loose end with the loops as you work; tack periodically with Mod Podge. Once you've achieved the desired coverage, snip the thread from the spool; tuck the end under, and glue in place.
