Even those Among Us get into seasonal themes! If you’ve been following along, we’ve been working up these super quick, multi-use Easter Eggs… and today we are using them to crown our little friends! Check out all the info and details you need to work these up yourself! Enjoy!
Here’s how you work them up!
Start with the Easter Eggs:
- Bernat Softee Baby Light weight yarn in Easter themed pastel colors. I used pink, lilac, baby blue, green…pretty much all the pastels 🙂

Next let’s work up the Crewmate!
All the info to work these guys up can be found right here!
Now let’s bring it together!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Various crochet Easter Eggs (6-7 should be enough)
- A Crewmate
- Floral wire – I find that I use this everywhere so it’s worth grabbing a spool of it v. the precut product. Here’s the one I use (various colours definitely come in handy)
Step 1: Push floral wire through your assorted Easter Eggs. I placed them a bit haphazard so that it looks less “put together”as a crown. Leave a bit of slack on your floral wire because you’ll be using this to fix to the top of the Crewmate’s head.
Pull the wire tight so the eggs squish up on each other and you cannot see the wire between them.
Cut the wire leaving 2 inches on either ends.
Twist off the wire to keep the eggs in place.
Fix to the top of your lil Crewmate’s head and ENJOY! You may need to attach additional wire to the front to secure it in place or you can sew it on with yarn. If you’re using the wire (like I did) be sure to tuck in wire ends so they dont poke anyone!
