Fabergé Eggs

Hello everybody! These are some eggs that I made from the eighteenth century. There are many ways to make your own pattern, and, they make such wonderful presents!

Materials

Eggs that have been blown out

Small knife

Nail polish, or shiny paint

Glue ( I used elmers because it sticks better)

Gems of all colors and shapes

Anything to make a stand with ( I used beads)

Newspaper

Punch a Hole

With the knife, poke a small hole on each end of the egg and blow out the insides into a bowl. Don't waste them now!

Paint Your Eggs

Paint your eggs any color you wish. Let dry. I painted silver underneath the diamonds so that the white wouldn't show.

The Pattern

Now you can decorate your eggs any way you like. I've always thought the red gems looked the best, but I can't seem to find any. And Michaels is so expensive.

Stand

Now you can make any kind of stand you like for your egg. I used beads because I tried to make a stand out of wire, but after using about ten feet I finally lost my temper. Ah, well.

Done!

All done! Experiment with these, and give some to your friends and family. They are so fun to make.

Enjoy! =)
