Little Monster Easter Egg

Little Monster Easter Egg

Easter egg hunts really do not get any more creative than this. Work up a funky Little Monster Easter Egg cover that goes around all of your plastic eggs so that it's more like there are two surprises in one. The monster's mouth opens right where the plastic egg does so that you can still reach in between its teeth to get to the prize inside. Easter crochet patterns can sometimes be too typical or just cutesy, but this is a super fun one that your kids are sure to love. Hide these little monsters all over the house!

I made this but I don't use glue or plastic, so everything is crocheted. My grandsons loved them, as did my great nieces. A lady wanted ocean related but wanted to be able to put some inside. Could I do an octopus? Sure, turn egg upside down and add legs. Imagine my surprise when 2 days after I finished the last, All Free had a similar (no plastic egg) on their site!

I am always looking for some items to make and take for holiday events. From Valentines day up to New Years Eve. This one is perfect for both Easter and Halloween. I think they are just to cute.

What about that. A cozy for your plastic Easter eggs. This little monster is just too cute. I think I will make several of these and hand them at out our Easter function next year. I am sure the children will think these are just too cute.

This adorable little critter would be welcome any time of year, not just at Easter. We have both our local universities starting back within the next couple of weeks, so I have College Care Packages on my mind. They would make cute Back to School or Teacher gifts, too. Honestly, I cant think of many occasions where these little guys wouldnt be welcomed.

These are great! Like one user said below, using a stiffer yarn eliminates the need for the plastic egg insert. You could add a loop and small button, or a couple of ties to keep it closed if you arent adding the plastic egg. After Easter, it can be used to store other small items, like earbuds, sd cards, Nintendo ds games, etc.

This is so cute and unusual. I send the grand kids a basket full of stuff every year and I usually try to find something unique to go into each one. This will be the perfect addition for the little monsters to hunt as well as keep as a keepsake.

What a fab Easter egg cosy for boys. I have always thought that bunny covers are a bit too girly so it makes a change to crochet an Easter gift that is a bit more unusual. I used mine to put a creme egg inside and so I did not use the plastic egg, I found that by using the slightly smaller than required hook for the yarn makes it stiff enough that you do not have to use the plastic egg for rigidness and I found some big googley eyes in my stash so used this for the eye rather than felt. This would be great for Easter egg hunts as you could also hide some mini eggs inside.
