Easter garlands and embroidery floss eggs

Alissa of Crafty Endeavor put together a delicious Easter themed tutorial that we just had to share.

You’ll need:
1 Cup liquid starch
½ Cup flour
Embroidery Floss

Blend together the liquid starch and flour. Coil your embroidery floss into a bowl of your starch/flour mix and gently press it into the “goo”
Blow up a couple of balloons to whatever size you desire and wrap the goo laden floss around it. Alissa says to make sure that you wipe off and excess goo and let it fall back into the bowl.
Leave to dry for several hours and, once dried, pop the balloon. If there is any crusty stuff in between the floss you can always just scrape it away using a pin like Alissa did. Thread the eggs onto a clean piece of floss to make your garland.
