Do-it-yourself Easter basket of threads
Do you plan to make something unusual by Easter? Then an Easter basket of threads and glue is what you need!
To create this craft you will need a simple balloon.
Easter basket with threads with your own hands
Yarn for knitting, decorative shavings, glue, braid and figurines of chickens (instead of them you can take fluffy pompoms and beads).
First of all, we have to inflate the ball and tie it so that it does not release the air ahead of time.
Now this ball will need to be wrapped with yarn for knitting.
Begin to wrap the ball
You can first put a little glue on the surface of the ball so that the yarn does not slip off. It is sometimes possible to apply glue over already wound yarn. The main thing is to make the coils close enough to each other and not move.
We try to make uniform turns
Gradually we cover the entire ball with yarn. With each new coil, the “cocoon” becomes more dense and durable.
Thick and strong cocoon of threads
After all the yarn is wound, we dip the ball in glue.

And hang it to dry.
Suspend to dry
When the glue dries,lower the ball and gently remove it from the "cocoon".

And carefully, without crushing the work, cut out a fragment from it with a sharp stationery knife or scissors.
