Woven Paper Egg

 While searching for DIY Easter decorations some beautiful paper woven eggs came along in my Pinterest feed and clicking from one woven paper egg to another I found a template but very short instructions. There was a link to a book about paper weaving though, so I bought the book. 

The weaving didn't look as if it would be very hard to do, but honestly, it took me hours before I had an egg that looked just a little bit as the ones in the book. So what you definitely need is patience, but also you have to cut out all pieces very precisely to end up with a nice result. Also possible: maybe it's just me not very good at paper weaving while you find it isn't difficult at all). 

I have had enough weaving for now, but maybe I will make some woven balls for my Christmas tree this year.

  3. I used to work in an office that had an ikea table lamp that looked really similar to this. Every time someone squashed it by mistake they would bring it to me to fix as I was the "crafty' one! It was really fiddly so I'm not surprised to hear these were too. They look great though!

  6. It still looks very nice. I am not sure I could do it at all or have the patience to keep at it. Thanks for sharing. #HomeMattersParty
