I made these for a project in school a couple years ago. They were easy to make and didn't take very long. They make nice Christmas tree ornaments or Easter decorations and are generally fun to have around.

Warning! If you eat the raw eggs for some stupid reason and get sick it isn't my fault.

Step 1: What you need

You will need:
*Thumbtack or sewing needle/pin
*Disposable bowl(s)
*Paper Towels
*Hot glue

If you use a thumbtack you will also need a toothpick to break the yolk or it won't come out.
Poly-flake guys, extra fine glitter. You can buy it anywere. <br><br>Sorry i vollentered at a Craft School once and I cringe at big fat normal glitter....p.p
UM I WOULD LIKE TO BE GOOD AT ENEYTHING (already good at drawing anime) <br>
or you could try stirafoem with a little bit of goo on the outside <br>
Very nice. Do you think that it would make any difference if I used that fine sand they sell at craft stores and whatnot instead of glitter? I also have a young sister who would love one of these, but she is just a baby and I don't want her breaking something this pretty, so is there a way to make it more dense?
Plastic easter eggs.<br />
You could use wooden eggs. You should be able to find them in a craft store.
fill it with wax.
...maybe if you fill it with hot glue first and it doesent matter if you use the fine sand
I don't think it would make a difference if you used the fine sand. To make it denser maybe you could put plaster of paris in it very carefully? I haven't tried it though so I don't know what would happen.
Thanks. <sup>_</sup> Keep makin' them eggs.<br/>
It's not too complicated, but it looks awesome.<br />
this is very creative. pretty 2!
Thank you :D
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-gorgeous-Dragons-Egg/?commentflag=1201138387567#CNJ4RB6FBQX6X2X">This seems cool too!</a><br/>
I saw that. I think I might try making one.
Yeah, I think that when I make one, I'm going to do what he did, but I'm going to add the "glittery" effect like you did! I like your Instructables!
When you finish I'd love to see a picture of it. Thanks!
Pretty sparkles... oh so pretty! Nice work... :)
Sorry for the double post but, maybe kids would like their eggs like that, maybe you can call it a "Boiled Dragon Egg" I'm sure they would like that! :-) -Alex
Great idea, this could also be used for a Christmas ornament if you add in a hook or something, that would be sweet, nice job!
Please keep your Instructables non-denominational and religion-neutral. You can just as easily say these "eggs" (they're really just fake eggs) are for "holidays". Not everyone celebrates Christmas and Easter*, and you are excluding a lot of people by assuming they do. Let's be inclusive, people! Holiday is an accepted and politically correct term that leaves no one out. I should also point out that most Christians who celebrate Easter do not believe there were dinosaurs (let along dragons). It would seem this Instructable is at odds with the religion you wish to link it with. All the more reason to substitute the word "holiday". Thank you in advance for making that change. *I do celebrate these holidays, which proves I'm not being selfish. I'm thinking of others and accepting them for their differences.
cool. how long does it take for the dragon to hatch?
: )
This is really cool, maybe you can add some food coloring too it to make it a little bit more colorful! -Alex
Thank you! Ooh yeah. I never thought of that. Or use more than one color of glitter.
maybe do like a brusho effect on the shells first?
