If you're watching GOT series, I feel that you're one of the big fan of khaleesi and her dragons. I made this DIY gift to my friend for her Birthday! (BTW She is not "Khaleesi" fan instead of "Arya Stark"). If you want to impress your friend by giving a gift like this. Just fellow my instructions and it's easy to build.
1. Dragon egg like shell,
2. Artificial leather,
3. Glitters / Markers,
Step 1: Eggshell
Choosing the right egg is one of the biggest challenge I faced and I don't want to create one so I chose a Kids toy, Its an nesting egg
or else you can pick one from easter egg.
I pick the big one and it fits perfectly as you can see from the picture (The orange one) and one of the coolest thing is it's open-able so that you can put your things in and close it (It's like a secret egg).
or else you can put some cool gift in it.
Step 2: Dragon Skin Texture
The shell need to be look dragon skin textures so I chose artificial leather ( else any leather bag) to give its look.
so we need to cut the leather into small pieces like 4cm each and leaf shape and cut it to 60-80 pieces and make sure every pieces looks same.
Step 3: Gluing
After the leather works is done. Guess what! Gluing! It's easy to do. All you need is patience so take your take and start pasting the leaves. It may take some time to dry but make sure that you're sticking the leaf one by one.Anyway! your egg will be good at the end. ~FYI mine was open-able so I didn't pasted fully. I paste half of the top and bottom so that I can open and close.
Step 4: Glittering
I painted silver color glitter to give it a darker look and It will glow when the light hit.
Step 5: At the End
Ta-da! The dragon egg is ready!
