Early Easter DIY

DSC_0586

I can’t wait till it’s Spring and for me Spring starts when it’s Easter.

With this DIY you have to start early, because if you would like a lot of Easter eggs, it will take a while, because it’s a lot of work, but don’t they look beautifull!

First you take an egg, don’t boil it! Wash the egg, you know where it comes from:)

Make a hole on the top and bottom of the egg

DSC_0678

Then you blow as hard as you can on the top hole form the egg

DSC_0715

It’s not always that easy and try to hold the eggs with all ten fingers, to prevent them from breaking, again you have rinse the egg when it’s empty.

DSC_0717

Then you follow this pattern for the egg shown in the picture above

patroon  paasei

Here the signs are explained, the pattern is made in two parts and you attach the second part to the first part in the last row where you see the arrows with a single crochet. Put your egg inside before closing and when it’s still wide enough.
patroon paasei

When your egg is finished you take a piece off ribbon from about 15 inch long and make a knot

DSC_0671

Take a very thin crochet needle or long needle and put it through the egg.

DSC_0672

Than work the ribbon first through the bottom and then through the top of the egg.

Put some branches which start to sprout in a vase and hang your eggs in it.
