It is a wonderful tradition to give an Easter egg filled with chocolate and even better when you crochet the egg yourself, making it very personal and something to use year after year.
The cardboard egg in the photo is painted with golden paint on the inside and white paint outside.
You can use the cardboard egg as it is, but it gives it an elegant touch to wrap with paper or paint it, as shown in the photos.
Make sure that the food items that you put inside the egg are wrapped to avoid contact with materials that might not be intended for food contact. Maybe use a colorful piece of parchment paper, cellophane or something else that will make the inside of the egg look festive.
The eggs in the photos are made in cl. no. 1 and gold Shiny metallic yarn.
