Now's your chance to make that decoritive egg you have always wanted to make. All that has held you back has been the mold with which to cast your fake egg wonder.  No longer.

In this Instructable we will build the perfect, and low cost egg mold. Within but a few short hours you will be laying eggs made of any material you choose.  Make the obvious choclate egg, wax candle eggs, soap eggs, or even paster eggs to fill all of your eggcentric decoritive needs.  Anything that goes from a liquid to a solid state can be yours in the shape of an egg.

Are you still with me here? Then let's go...

I apologize for the late reply. First, thank you.

I made the rabbit ears for a themed gala event I was expected to attend this past January. It was but hours to the event and I didn't have a costume. The theme was Through the Looking Glass, and I thought going as the March Hare would be unique. It was.

I only wish I had documented the build for an Instructable.

If I can dig up a photo of the full costume I will post it.
AGREED! I came here for that :D
