25 Days of Christmas Ornaments DAY 4

As promised, I tackled the egg ornament.
I wasn't sure how to get started, even though I know I did one of these as a kid.  So I Googled it and found {THIS} helpful site.
It was a half day at school for my girls, so I poked the holes and they blew out the eggs.

I rinsed them, microwaved them (for 30 seconds on high) and here they are ready to decorate.

I used some acrylic paint and a sponge brush to apply two coats.  I liked some white from the shell peeking through, but a few more coats would have made it appear more solid.
I pulled out some Hambly rub-ons and applied one to the egg.

Here's the finished egg, with just a touch of bling. 

I haven't decided how I want to attach a hook to it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.  I would definitely make these again, and really make a project out of it now that I know how truly easy it is.
