Hello everybody! These are some eggs that I made from the eighteenth century. There are many ways to make your own pattern, and, they make such wonderful presents!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Eggs that have been blown out
Nail polish, or shiny paint
Glue ( I used elmers because it sticks better)
Gems of all colors and shapes
Anything to make a stand with ( I used beads)
Step 2: Punch a Hole
With the knife, poke a small hole on each end of the egg and blow out the insides into a bowl. Don't waste them now!
Step 3: Paint Your Eggs
Paint your eggs any color you wish. Let dry. I painted silver underneath the diamonds so that the white wouldn't show.
Step 4: The Pattern
Now you can decorate your eggs any way you like. I've always thought the red gems looked the best, but I can't seem to find any. And Michaels is so expensive.
Step 5: Stand
Now you can make any kind of stand you like for your egg. I used beads because I tried to make a stand out of wire, but after using about ten feet I finally lost my temper. Ah, well.
Step 6: Done!
All done! Experiment with these, and give some to your friends and family. They are so fun to make.
