Art Deco egg decorating is quite a popular craft form because of the smooth, oval shape of the egg and how easy they are to decorate and add fancy crochet stitch patterns. The art of egg decoration goes back to early civilizations when eggs were colored and used as gifts to celebrate the re-birth of life on the earth so it is a perfect time to crochet a fancy Art Deco design to cover your Ester and Spring eggs for decorating.

Ribbons can be added to the Art Deco crocheted egg to use for hanging the eggs on a mantel or outside on a tree limb.
