STEP 9: Hang the balloons up to dry. (Pin them to a board through the lip of the balloon, or clip with a clothespin.) Let them hang for a day or two, until they feel thoroughly dry to the touch.

STEP 10: Pop the balloons, remove them–and voila–you’ll greet the new season with an array of pretty, lacy Easter eggs!

    Many years ago, I made a large Easter egg “basket” using a similar technique! The only difference was I used a large balloon, and a thin mixture of Elmer’s glue and water. I left a rough opening, which I trimmed with rick-rack once the egg was dry. I placed Easter grass in the bottom and filled it with candies and small toys as one would a regular basket!
