    Some where in this forum I had posted about painting eggs.

    When we get really big double or triple yolker eggs I blow them. We save them and paint them for Christmas ornaments.

    I can't find the thread where we were talking about this so I am posting here on a new thread.

    Here is one of the painted eggs.

    I put them in a nest of curled paper in a small gold wired basket then wrap the basket in the clear plastic basket wrap with a ribbon.

    They really look striking on the Christmas tree.

    Anyone else care to show and tell their own egg or chicken crafts?

    Thank you. My oldest daughter and I sit late at night or when my 2 yr old is napping and work on them together. It is our quiet time.

    Good grief girl, give us lowly humans a break, lol!! Is there anything you can't cook, grow, or make?!!! Wow, those are pretty!! I remember that thread out blowing the gunk out of a little hole in the egg, and I have to say now what I said then, ain't no way!! Not blowing gunk out of any egg, but they are pretty and I would buy them and hang them on my tree. I have painted on gourd eggs and made ornaments out of them, but no fragile chicken eggs. Girl, you are sure talented! [​IMG]

    wildsky -

    First, I scavange from old or broken ornaments or really ugly ones. LOL If I can't buy the hangers from the local craft store I will also buy those 50 for $2.00 ornaments at the dollar store when I see the little buckets at the after Christmas sales.

    If I have to buy things I look around for the best prices online.

    Search google. Here is one place with the top hanger.
