Do you still have plastic Easter Eggs hanging around?
Look at this cute craft my Bubs came up with.
It's as easy as it looks. Just string up your egg-halves, keeping them all the same direction until the last one. (You may have to make some of the holes bigger with a pen.) We used a nylon cord that doesn't stretch. It allows some movement but it doesn't allow for separation of the segments.
Make a little knot on each end and trim the excess.
