Make Dragon's Eggs for Easter

dragon's eggsEaster is upon us. While the majority of us will be coloring our hard boiled eggs with the kiddies this weekend and putting up all the kid crafted holiday decorations, some of us will be blowing out our raw eggs to make pretty decorations and gorgeous works of art.

Instructables user KaptinScarlet has awesome directions and pictures that tell us how to blow out an egg and get it ready to paint into an awesome Dragon's Egg. After you puncture the holes, and the egg is washed, give the egg to your pint sized person and have him or her blow out the contents of the egg for you.

You'll need plenty of patience, hot glue, spray paint in various Dragon colors, and acrylic paint to give the egg a distressed look and also to make it look like it has been around gathering dirt for about a gazillion years. You'll also need a cocktail stick to pop in one end of the egg so that you have something to hold while not gluing your fingers together.

Once your egg is completed and gorgeous enough that a Dragon would want to steal it, check out KaptinScarlet's other projects on He says you'll need a special egg stand to display your egg, and a special box to keep the Dragon's Egg in.
