Intro: Mr. Christmas Train in Egg


This is a beaded ostrich egg.   When I think of Faberge Eggs I think of this style of egg.   It has Austrian rhinestones, Austrian rhinestone chain, and plated filigrees for the design. The beads are 3 cut pearl white size 12  from Shipwreck beads (Item number 12SC612).  It took approximately 8 and 1/2 hanks of beads to form this diamond pattern.  Also, Faberge Eggs have a surprise inside just like mine.  I used a Mr. Christmas animated ornament,  took it apart, rewired, and put it in the ostrich egg.  The girth of the ostrich egg should at least measure 15 and 1/2 inches. The batteries and speaker are in the stand.  This egg plays 25 Christmas songs.  The Christmas trees have colored fiber optic lights. I added more ornaments to the trees.  Once the piece was leveled and glued in place I added snow and snow drafts around the edges of the scene.   A reed switch was used so that it automatically turns on when it is opened.  The Christmas trees light up and the train travels around.
