So funny that yesterday I posted about a Clothesline style frame, and today I'm posting about a craft that uses actually clothesline. It was totally random!
I also went round and round in circles trying to figure out if the cord or rope you use for a clothesline is spelled "Clothes Line" or “Clothesline” and I couldn’t find a definitive answer… hence I will be using ‘clothesline’ for this entire post.

I always started at the wide end and finished on the narrow end. I love the striped pattern you get from the two color strands twisted together:

I made a whole bunch while sitting in front of the TV. One roll of clothesline was enough to make 8 or 9 standard sized eggs. Since I had three colors I ended up with dozens of eggs:
Now I just have to figure out where to incorporate them into my Easter decorations this year.
