  • Egg(s)
  • Tape - such as packing tape, masking tape, or scotch tape
  • Thumbtack, safety pin and/or small nail
  • String, twine, or ribbon
  • Slender but stiff wire
  • Optional: mini jingle bells, charms, gems, beads, buttons, and other cute adornments
  • Optional: super glue


  • Cover each end of a clean egg with tape.
  • Gently twist and press a thumbtack (or similar) into each end of the egg through the tape, creating a two small holes. Gently widen each hole to several millimeters, up to 1/8".
  • Working over a sink or bowl, place your mouth or a straw over the smaller hole, create a seal, and blow out the egg contents.
  • Rinse the egg out with warm water, and "blow out" the extra water too.
  • Use wire to guide a string through the egg, and tie a knot at each end - snug against the egg. Create a loop in the string on top.
  • Optional: use superglue to seal around the holes in the egg (to prevent further cracking) and to permanently secure the knots.
  • Decorate the egg as you wish, adding charms, gems, buttons, feathers, mini jingle bells, and more!
