What You Need:
1. Different coloured Crochet Threads

Crochet Thread


2. 1 cup of Liquid Starch
3. Half cup Flour
4. Balloons
5. String

DIY

Instructions:

Step 1: Create a mixture of the starch and flour. You could blend it in a blender. The mixture, essentially, acts as a stiffener.

Step 2: Blow up your balloons.

Step 3: Dip the crochet thread in the mixture and allow it to soak it in. Don't just throw it in but coil the string as in the picture so you don't have to deal with any messy knots.

Step 4: Wrap the string around the balloon in a pattern of your choice

Step 5: Wipe off any excess mixture.

Step 6: Pop the balloon after the string is dried which is likely to take several hours. You can use a pin to scrape off any more excess dried mixture.

Step 7: Remove the balloon

Step 8: Put the string through the egg and glue it on the string. Do that with all your coloured eggs and the final result is a colourful wall hanging decoration.

You could even put lights in them if you like.
