Easter Egg Craft

My grandma had an Easter Egg made out of string many years ago when I was young. I was feeling a little nostalgic and I thought I would try to make one of my own. I soaked crochet yarn in a plastic bag with starch for a couple of days and then wrapped a large balloon. Let it dry and then pop the balloon. Decorate it with artificial flowers. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't as sturdy as I thought grandma's was. Maybe I should try one with a good ol' glue and water mix and see if that makes a difference.
