Step 3: Cut the Eggs

The next step was a little tricky. I had to find a way to easily cut off the pointy end of the egg without cracking the plastic. The best way I found was to hold the egg against a work bench and saw off the end with a coping saw. There are probably better ways, but this was the easiest I could come up with. A band saw is probably the best way, but I don't have one of those :(

You also have to make sure the hole isn't big enough for the candy to slip through. The size of the hole will sorta be determined by the candy you stick inside.
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! <br><br>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
This is very unique! I'm always on the look out for new things to try for our easter egg hunt &amp; this is perfect. Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome.
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! ;)<br />
&nbsp;You know, you're right. That's actually kinda neat in it's own way. Nice observation.
This is great!&nbsp; My daughter is two and we just had her first egg hunt yesterday, definitely going to be making these next year.
&nbsp;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.
That is very funny!
