I originally printed a handful of these Easter Eggs just for something to print, but as Christmas approached it occurred to me that hanging them upside-down would make some lovely Christmas tree ornaments!
The topper is a small addition (only 25-30 min to print one) that in my opinion really completes the look of the eggs as decorations for Christmas. I preferred printing the topper in silver to give it a bit of metallic appearance, and gold would work well with the same intention, but any colour will do!
I printed the egg in the photo with transparent PLA, 2 layers for the wall thickness and 5-10% infill, which gave a nice frosty look to the finished product!
If you have any comments or questions, or details that I left out, please feel free to let me know and I'll update the summary!

After printing both halves, you have to glue them together!
My printer has a quite smooth PEI print bed, so I used my rotary tool to rough up the 2 surfaces to be glued together.
I used Gorilla Super Glue (cyanoacrylate glue) between the rough surfaces, swirled to the 2 parts around to work the glue into the sanding marks, and set upright in an empty egg carton to cure.
