I saw this craft on facebook and needed to do it. Let me caution you right now, its a messy, three-day craft that takes up space.
This is a stiff ball made of yarn. Inside is trapped a chocolate candy (or 2 or 3). How did the candy get inside?
Use up your odds & ends of yarn, dipped in glue mixture, wrap yarn around water balloons filled with candy, let dry and then pop the balloon ---what could be easier?
For every balloon I managed to squiggle a candy into, another was torn.
The egg with three candies? I now declare it the Golden Egg!
The yarn soaks up the glue & water mixture (equal parts) and as you wrap it around the egg, it drips glue everywhere. Not to mention the sodden mess of yarn that wants to glom up into a celtic knot.
Some tricks to get those candies into the balloon.
Blow up the water balloon first to stretch it out.
Pull the neck apart and 'roll' the balloon over the Hershey's Chocolate Egg. Rolo's also worked fairly easily. Hershey's Chocolate Kisses,
Once candy is seated, you need to blow air into the balloon to partially blow it back up.
Squeeze what you blew up and the candy will drop into the bottom of the balloon.
If you want more than one candy inside, you'll need to repeat this.
Pop the balloon and carefully extract the balloon rubbage which has a disconcerting way of wrapping around the candy and not letting go.
One for each of my co-workers and assorted nephews & nieces.
