Making Dinosaur Egg Night Lights

dinolightEGG COVER final

This is just one of the new projects in the new Egg Crafts book.  To make theses dinosaur egg night lights you need to clean out some eggs.  After cracking the eggs I chip out a small opening to get the egg and yoke out.  Next I paint the area around the opening with clear nail polish.  Once it is dry you can use some scissors to widen the opening.  I painted the egg with some black nail polish and while it is still wet I sprinkled on some gold glitter with stars in it.  I paint the egg with a clear coat to seal in the egg.  Cut a small hole in the bottom to insert the tea light.  Paint the base of the egg the same as the egg.  I used a small Dremel drill to drill some small holes around the top to let the light out.  Once everything is dry then glue the egg to the tea light.  The last step is to glue the dinosaur in place.  The tea lights are LED lights that don’t put off any heat and it will be safe for a child to hold and imagine the times of dinosaurs.
