Get ready to make some easy Easter crafts to decorate your Easter brunch table. Today’s project is an easy egg warmers crochet pattern. Egg warmers, also called egg cozies, will offer an enticing element to the table setting. Made of remnants of wool, cotton or acrylics, either way, they’ll keep hard- and soft-cooked eggs warm.
Making these easy Easter egg warmers is a cool craft project for kids. En passante, you can teach them how to crochet in a single sitting. It’s a very simple pattern.
And to make it into a perfect opportunity to further your own skills at creative design, I have many suggestions for you on how to embellish this simple shape.
Colored Easter Eggs
The easiest way to add happiness to your Easter table is to add cheery pastel colors. Why not give everyone their own colored table setting?
Who says that you have to paint the eggs themselves to create colored Easter eggs? How about making Easter egg cozies in various pastel colors instead. Don’t you think that’s cute? This way you get to actually EAT your organic eggs instead of spoiling them with food coloring (still edible but not as healthy) or worse, paint (inedible).
Colored Egg Warmers as an alternative to colored Easter Eggs
This base crochet pattern for egg warmers comes with a tutorial for hand embroidered flowers, an additional crochet pattern for a mini lady bug, and a tutorial on adding jewelry and ‘found’ elements to your design to create a style you like and a color scheme that suits your Easter brunch table settings.
Enjoy the photos of the egg warmers. The crochet patterns are not free, but inexpensive and available in my little shop.
