Put your chocolate eggs inside the balloon.
TIP: Blow the balloon up a couple of times first to stretch it out.
If you find this too difficult don't worry, you can also add them to your nest in step 6.
Blow the balloon up to quite a small size and tie a knot in it.
This is where it gets messy so put some old paper down to catch any glue.
Mix the PVA glue with a bit of water in an old bowl.
Dip your thumb and finger in the mixture and then pull your thread through your thumb and finger making sure it gets covered in glue.
Start wrapping the glue covered thread around your balloon until it is almost covered.
You need to leave a few gaps but make sure they aren’t big enough for the eggs to fall through!
Leave to dry.
Once dry, pop the balloon and carefully remove from inside the nest.
You might need to cut away any excess balloon still attached to the thread.
you have not already added your eggs to the nest you can do this now. Carefully
push them though one of the bigger holes making sure you don’t stretch the hole too
much, you dont want your eggs to fall out!
There you have it, an Easter Nest!
TIP: If you’re making more than one why not get creative and play around with the size of eggs and balloons you use to add a unique touch to each of your Easter nests.
