  1. Mix five table spoons of cement and three table spoons of water in a bowl. Place the half plastic egg in an egg holder. Fill it to the top with the cement mixture. Position the pieces of stick in the middle of the cement mixture and allow it to set. Remove the half plastic egg from the egg holder and slip it into an old sock.

  2. Use some of the fabric strips and embroidery thread to coil around the stick for decorations.
