  • Now it's time to add the string or wool to your egg box so that it can be hung outside. Take a piece of wool and feed it through the two holes in the raised part of the egg box. You want to create a loop between these on the upper part. on the underneath part of your egg box make knots in your string or wool so that it won't be pulled back through the holes.

Our egg boxes have holes in the top of them which are perfect for threading wool or string through but if yours don't you can make a hole in them yourself. When making holes in paper or card I always recommended playing some blue tack or playdough underneath the thing you are making a whole in so that you don't hurt anything or anyone with the scissors you are using to make the hole.
