Step 3: Your Imagination.
you can either follow the next steps to make an egg like mine or you can make your own using your imagination. if you make your own make sure to post a slide show on instructables and post a link to it in the comments below so we can see you creations.
Step 4: My Design-Legs
Before you start make sure you remember NOT TO GLUE anything in until i say to because it will make everything much easier for you.
The first thing i did was designed how it was going to stand so i picked it to have three legs so it stand level.
when your done making the legs make holes in the bottom of the egg spaced equally apart to fit the legs in. make sure the holes are just barely bigger than the leg pieces. to start the hole use the push pin then use small screwdrivers to make the holes bigger to the right size of the legs.
Step 5: My Design-Arms
When i was making the arms i wanted to make them look a little creepy with claws.
Do the same thing as before when your done making the arms make holes for them.
Step 6: My Design-Spare Parts
This step sums up the other little dohickeys on the egg.
Step 7: My Design-Paint Job
This is the last step before you glue everything on.
Design your own little sketch then paint it out, then when your done painting you can glue everything on to your egg.
