    Decide how you want the egg to look. There are various options for creating a sequin egg, and what you choose will depend on what you've got in mind for theme and/or the materials available. Some ideas include:
    • Color: The easiest way to approach color is to keep it all the same color. Or, you could use two matching colors. A little more complicated but amazing to look at is to make a rainbow colored egg.
    • Pattern: Various pattern approaches include using small and large sequins, stripes, a motif such as a bunny or a letter or a cross.
