This crocheted project is made from 2 motifs, which you then stiffen with fabric stiffener.  Fill the halves with Easter candy or money, and then fasten the two pieces together with ribbon.  Add this to your kids' baskets, give to a friend, or use as part of your Spring decor.  This unique Easter treat is a great alternative and so much fun to make!

Step 3: Finishing Up

 

2nd Part:

Make a form for the egg:

I took tinfoil and made a form of an egg.  Make sure it is big enough to fit the motifs snuggly.

Crocheted Easter Egg

Stiffen your egg:

Take fabric stiffener and stiffen the 2 motifs of the eggs and place them onto the egg form. And pin them down to the form.

Let your egg dry:

You can let your eggs sit overnight and completely dry or what I like to do is get out your blow-dryer and dry it that way.

Take a ribbon and weave it in any like manner though Rnd 9 on both motifs. Completely go around the egg and tie a bow and you are now finished.  Don’t for get to put your treats into the egg!
