They look great with a small chocolate egg in and wrapped in cellophane and make a more useful and lasting Easter present than a chocolate egg on its own!
You will need:
A scroll saw with appropriate blade for the wood you are using
Piece of hardwood approx. 2cm thick
Pattern (see Step 1)
Forstner bit, or spade bit, or hole saw - size 35 - 40mm
Dremel router (not essential)
Oil to finish
If you are an experienced scroll sawer this could well seem like teaching my Grandma to suck the eggs that go in the egg holders, but I am hoping it could also inspire some folk who are new to the hobby.
The picture will need to be large enough for you to draw a circle inside that corresponds to the size of your drill bit.
Cut the picture out, leaving a small margin around the edges, except for the lower edge.
