1. Paint The Bottle

​Cover the whole bottle with black acrylic paint and a sponge. You can add multiple layers of paint to ensure the surface of the bottle stays smooth.

2. Add The Bead

​You can get more creative with the bead you choose, as it will act as your bottle stopper. The one I used is a broken Christmas light, and I thought it was perfect. Glue the bead to the top of the bottle with adhesive glue.

For the “always” quote, you can either write it yourself or print it online like I did. You can find many printables on Pinterest. Glue the label on the bottle.

4. Add The Final Touches

​To give the bottle that magical touch, I melted some black beeswax on the top of the bottle. Don´t do this without parental supervision if you are a minor! When you melt the wax, protect your work surface because the process can get messy! You don´t need to use lots of candle wax. Just drop a little bit on top of the bottle. Many times, letting it fall naturally will create the most wonderful results.

Place The Pins

​Start placing the pins from the top of the egg and always cover a third of the previous pin in the next layer. Work all the way down to cover the entire egg. It took me about 90 pins to cover one.

Here are my two dragon eggs. At this point, they should look a bit like golden pinecones.

Paint the eggs

Pick a colour you like and paint the entire egg.

Add Glitter

​I love using glitter in my craft projects. You can use basic crafting glitter or shimmering nail polish. I think it gives some extra magic to your dragon eggs. Be creative!

These eggs are really easy to make. You can make them as a decoration for Halloween or a fantasy-themed birthday party!
