Picture of Cute Crochet Egg Holder

Every year around Easter time I see many decorated eggs. Some of them are really beautiful and unique, but I'm not so good at painting so I wanted to find something different this year.
So here is the idea I came up with: a cute eggholder that dresses eggs up! This way the egg is decorated and holded at the same time.

I created a bunny egg holder and a chick egg holder. I used basic stitches for them and they are both very easy to do.
I'm going to show you how to make the bunny one. The chick egg holder is very similar so I didn't take step by step photos for it, but let me know if you want me to do that!

By the way, you can find my egg holders on my Etsy shop here and here :)

I hope you like them!
