Choose your background paper (pick a color pattern that will go with your string colors).  Lay the background paper facedown on a flat surface.  Place the cardboard on top of the background paper.  Fold over the edges—as if you were wrapping a present—and tape the background paper to the backside of the cardboard.

Next you’ll want to either sketch out an Easter egg pattern, or you can use my pattern template.

Place a piece of tracing paper over the egg pattern, and trace.

Lay the tracing paper with the design on it over your wrapped board.  To hold the tracing paper in place, insert a few pins on opposite sides of the pattern.

Use a hammer to insert pins, evenly spaced, along all the lines of the pattern.  Take care to push the pins in at an even height.  If you’ve pushed any pins in too far, simply turn your board over, and use your hammer to gently tap any pins that have poked through.

When you’ve finished inserting all your pins, gently tear off the tracing paper.

Start with your white string.  Tie a knot around one pin.

Cut off the excess string on one side (careful not to cut too close to the knot).  Use your hot glue gun to place a dot of glue on the knot to secure it in place.

Wrap the string once around each pin until you’ve gone around the entire outside edge of the Easter egg.  To finish, tie off your string and secure with a dot of glue, just as you did when starting.

Choose a color string for your next section.  Follow along the outside edge first, then go back and fill in the section using a criss-cross pattern.

Continue filling in each section of your string art Easter egg.
