Picture of How to Make
After posting last year's "Irretrievable Easter Egg", quite a few (fortunately, not all) of you were aghast that I'd prank innocent kids that way. So this year, I created a "prank" that everyone should find light-hearted and way cool.

Basically, I developed an egg that, when picked up, would leave behind a little cloth flower pinned to the ground. There's still room left in the egg for candy, so even the most sensitive kids should have no psychic scaring trauma from this project.

Step 1: Materials

Here's what I used:
  • A bag of 42 plastic eggs
  • A bag of Hershey's chocolate Springtime Flowers (seemed appropriate)
  • Some wire coat hangers
  • Leftover fabric scraps
  • Hot glue
  • A copping saw
  • A pair of pliers

Many people have suggested using a dremel cutoff wheel to cut the end off the eggs and I agree. That's the best way to do this.
This is a great Idea and a perfect way to celebrate spring!

I might just use store bought fake silk flowers instead. Because I might have some laying around, since I have more use of leftover fabric than I do silk flowers.
Very unique and interesting

I will use this next year. The irretrievable egg was funnier though.

Heheh, your white flowers looks more like egg white and yolk... That's what I first thought when I saw the into picture! Good job by the way! ;)

 You know, you're right. That's actually kinda neat in it's own way. Nice observation.
This is great!  My daughter is two and we just had her first egg hunt yesterday, definitely going to be making these next year.

 Nice job! As a side note on cutting open the tops of the eggs, try using a Dremel. It's a small rotary tool that is super useful for small crafts.
