I was impressed at how nicely an egg glows with an Led in it, when I saw the following two great instructables. I just took it a step further and stuck some glass on the outside to give it a stained glass appearance.

Using coloured glass in mosaic tile projects is a great way of creating a stained glass look, you can use it on vases, mirrors, candle holders, etc.
Step 1: Materials
-needle, awl, or any pointy metal thing -for poking holes in the egg
-bowl -to catch your egg innards
-your favourite recipe for preparing your egg (omelet, scrambled, cookies)
-glass -pieces* or tiles**
-tile nippers or hammer
-safety gear: safety glasses/ rubber gloves/?mask
-newspaper/cardboard to cover work surface
-glue (I use Weldbond -great for tiles and is nontoxic)
-grout*** (you can get this from hardware stores or craft stores) grout can come in different colours so make sure you get the colour you want
-putty knife for applying grout
-sponge for removing excess grout
-cloth for buffing project after grout dries
-a design for your mosaic egg
-pencil/paper to draft design
I just used an LED candle I bought at a dollar store
nice egg holder
or make your own
*the glass pieces I used are called Cobblets I bought them at Michaels, they are nice because the sharp edges have been smoothed over so they are gentle on your fingers.
**you can buy glass tiles at craft stores too, but they are much less expensive on ebay.
***The grout I usually use for my mosaic projects is already premixed and comes out of a tube which makes it super easy to use, I get it from RONA here in Canada.
