How to Make Your Own Egg-Painting Brushes

Here's how to make the special brushes used to apply egg dye in our Egg-Cellent Easter Egg Dying Party.

You'll need: 100% cotton twine, round toothpicks and thread. Visualize a little broom.

  1. Cut approximately 12 inches of twine from the ball.
  2. Wrap twine loosely around your index and middle fingers 4-5 times.
  3. Carefully remove the spooled twine from your fingers, making sure to keep the loops intact.
  4. Insert toothpick halfway into one end of the looped twine.
  5. To secure the looped twine and toothpick, wrap thread tightly around the end where toothpick was inserted. Tie off thread.
  6. Cut open the loops at the other end of the brush; trim ends to make them even.
