Lace bands or ribbons: Wrap a lace strip across your egg. Fix it with a normal pin or a safety pin. Alternatively, knot the ends of the lace strip and cut the excess. In this case the pattern will be uneven at the spot of the knot. The finer the lace is, the less visible the pattern will be. Make sure the lace strip is attached very tightly to the egg. It’s the most important thing to pay attention to, regardless of which pattern you choose. Pull the nylon stocking over one hand and place the egg over it. Invert the stocking over the egg, while trying to keep the lace strip at its place. Twist the stocking at a base and tightly tie a string around the base. Straighten the lace in case it has moved.
