Introduction: 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.
