1. Dye egg red (or green, if you prefer) using Easter egg dyeing kit. Leave the egg in the dye for a few minutes to get the deepest possible color.
2. Let the egg dry completely; when it looks dry, pat it down with paper towel, just to be sure.
3. Wrap silver pipe cleaner around the center of the egg and secure with your glue gun.
4. Using a tacky craft clue, affix green, red and silver crystals in any pattern you like. Use different size and shape crystals for variety.
5. Mold about a half inch of modeling clay into a square; let dry for a few minutes. Affix to top of egg with glue gun.
6. To create the hook, bend a piece of thin wire into a "U" shape and stick the ends in the clay; leave a loop sticking out, so you can attach a hook. Use craft glue to secure the wire to the clay. Let dry.
7. Wrap a small piece of tin foil around the clay and secure with glue.
8. Attach an ornament hook, and you're done!
