Simple and inexpensive decoration for mythical lovers
If you love mythical beasts and medieval memorabilia this is the craft for you!
My cost was less than 15 cents per egg.
I made these for my son and will put candy in them for Easter and they can be used as desk or shelf decoration after that.

These are the basic materials, but I also used red paint and glitter fabric paint that was not in the picture.
As I had everything on hand except the eggs, my only cost was the eggs and they had them 30% off at JoAnn fabrics so they only cost 69 cents for 6 eggs. The eggs are a little larger than standard Easter Eggs, but you could also get standard ones from the dollar store and would get more eggs.
Each egg takes about 1 glue stick and even though I used 3-4 coats of paint, it did not really take much, so I estimate the cost to be less than 15 cents per egg.
I mixed the green and gold paint and painted the bottom of the eggs, then let that dry the paint the top of the eggs.
I put another coat on again doing the same thing (see the bottom of the egg at the side) and although they look old and molted and probably more authentic that way, I didn't feel they were pretty enough for Easter, so I mixed red and gold paint and painted them.
