These snakes are very simple to make, and require only a few supplies. I did my snake a little differently than the directions at Sheek Shindigs, so check out those directions for some alternatives.
You can make the snake any length you want. For mine I used a total of 39 plastic eggs, but only two of them are used whole. The rest of the snake is made with only one half of each egg. I also used some elastic cord, and a small piece of felt for the tongue. Dried beans are used inside the egg at the tail for the rattle.
Each egg half needs a hole in the end to run the elastic cord through. My husband made the holes for me with his drill and a tiny bit, but I think the holes could also be made by using a nail. Make a hole in each end of the whole eggs. Start the snake by putting some dried beans in one of the whole eggs for the tail, then run the elastic cord through the egg. Tie a knot securely on the end. I also put a drop of hot glue on the knot so it would stay put.
Then just start threading the egg halves onto the elastic cord. When the snake is as long as you like, add another whole egg for the head. Knot the elastic cord on the final end. I also used hot glue to secure my whole eggs parts together.
Cut a tongue from the felt and glue in place at the front of the head. Use a Sharpie to draw some eyes for the snake. The snake is ready to slither right into the Easter grass.
