I stumbled across this craft idea and thought it was so cute...

Crochet Thread Easter Eggs

1.Blow up a balloon
2.Cover the entire balloon watered down glue (you may wish to use an old paintbrush)
3.Wrap crochet thread around the balloon in one direction, leaving small gaps about 1/2 inch wide so the balloon isn't completely covered
4.Apply another light layer of glue on top of the thread and wrap with another layer of crochet thread in different direction
5.Repeat several more times until the balloon is covered with thread.
6.Tie on a piece of thread to knot of balloon
7.Hang the balloon from the bottom thread to dry for about 24 hours.
8.Pop the balloon and gently pull it out
