DO NOT...
...wrap plastic eggs in fuzzy yard. i know it sounds really cool, but it ends up looking like a cat threw up.
...wrap plastic eggs in twine and spray paint. even if it is blue ocean breeze. what worked well for christmas balls, doesnt really look all that great as easter eggs.
get some cool sparkley eggs from the dollar tree, start hot gueing them to a styrofoam ball and realize that  you need more. then forget about the project for a week (maybe 2) and finally go back to the dollar tree for more and...SURPRISE! they are sold out! no stores have them!


then you are stuck just throwing them into a jar (after ripping them off of the ball because you dont want to waste the ball) because they are sparkley and pretty and all.
just warning you now...

I love the fuzzy egg! Here's another thing to NOT do with eggs, put them whole in the microwave and push the Start button. My dear daughter tried that once and imploded the inside of the microwave. Expensive lesson.
