Do you love the idea of decorating Easter eggs but you’re just not up for the challenge and mess of getting out the dyes and carefully poking holes in the shells to blow the yolks out? There are plenty of other ways to make DIY Easter eggs and get into the festive spirit without having accidentally purple and pink finger tips for the rest of the week. Our favourite DIY projects are often made of yarn and, because of the intricate little designs you can create quite easily, we find ourselves making adorable crocheted Easter eggs every year.

Your Easter egg at brunch on the big day doesn’t have to look like a little bunny if you have the skills to make something funnier. We’re crazy about this hilarious viking egg cover from Selber Machen Guru.
15. Radish egg cozies
