I used small square pieces for some of the eggs, and experimented with longer strips for others.
I couldn't find any jumbo eggs- just small wooden ones from my local Ben Franklin's.
I only got one package of 5 eggs- and it was a pretty quick project! I had a vision of a basket full of these eggs sitting on my kitchen table.
But after seeing the finished product, I settled on a small bowl (vase?) full in the bathroom. They just weren't as egg-shaped as I would have liked- and adding layers of fabric didn't help. Will definitely try again someday when I get my hands on some bigger more egg-shaped fake eggs!
