The Enchanted Egg

Absolutely gorgeous, but just for décor

eggs, cracked lengthwise
craft paint
metal paint
thin metal wire

  1. Paint the egg in any color.
  2. Paint the inside of the egg with the metal paint. You can also use gold or silver leafing.
  3. With the wire, make a "nest" that the egg can rest in. Use 3 strands of wire to make the nest.
  4. Add 2 "hooks" in the wire to secure the egg. See our site for how-to images.
  5. Add a few strands of wire to make the handle.
