April 1, 2009 (La Mesa)—These elegant eggs are beautiful enough to display year-round. They can be displayed throughout the home or given as treasured gifts.
Start with wooden eggs that can be purchased at craft stores. Start by painting the eggs. Next, apply beads and gems, using a hot glue gun to apply.
If you wish, you can next add glitter, carefully applying hot glue around the beads and jewels. Pour on glitter a segment at a time, pressing glitter firmly after glue cools slightly. Wait about an hour, then shake to remove excess glitter—and enjoy your custom creations.
Eggs can be displayed on candleholders or atop any small glass or metal container turned upside down.
Acrylic Paints—any colors
…and lots of patience!
