- Large Egg ( I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby)
- Spray Paint
- Brown Sandwich Bags
- Cutting Mat
- Craft Pen Knife (I suggest one with a rubber handle)
- Metal ruler
- Spray adhesive
- Fine white glitter
I already had these large, nesting Easter eggs. I separated them, and placed them in a box some with some shipping paper underneath to hold them up. Next, I painted a primer coat in white because they were so bright. You may not need to do this. Then, I painted them with gold spray paint, because most dragons eggs are gold, right? I sprayed the eggs with adhesive spray, then use a fine glitter to add iridescense to the egg. I love this Martha Stewart fine glitter. A little goes a long way, but the glitter is so fine that it creates an irradecent, mystical (I know, right?) feel to anything you sprinkle it on.
I used a cutting mat, metal ruler and a pen knife to cut the sandwich bags into long strips and placed them in a bag. I cut a piece cardboard to the size of the diansaur egg to use as the nest base. Next, I put the base along with the strips in a box to start building the dragon nest. I placed some of the shreds at the bottom of the box, and used the spray adhesive to hold them together. I added a little at a time, shifting the strips until it took the form of a nest. I attached the diansaur egg with spray adhesive. Once it was the shape I wanted, I sprayed a little more adhesive and sprinkled with the fine glitter.
Bam! Diansaur egg center piece. It looks great at night with a few flameless candles surrounding the nest.
