What you'll need:

* Boiled or Chocolatescape Eggs (see tips below)

* Egg cartons, empty
* Tweezers, optional
* Ice pick (if using Chocolatescape Eggs)

How to make it:

If using Chocolatescape Eggs:

Click here for directions on how to make Chocolatescape Eggs.

You will need to let the eggs dry once you decorate them. Use the ice pick to poke a hole in the parts of the egg carton that stick up (dividing the eggs). You can then place the stick through this hole to allow your decorative egg to dry.

If using boiled eggs:

You will need to decorate only one side of the egg at a time. Let dry either on egg cartons turned upside down or a cooling rack. Decorate other side when first side is dry.

1. At the top of the egg, make a scalloped circular design with the glitter paint, if desired. Make sure there is a "puddle" of paint on the top. Place a jewel on the top of the egg in the puddle of paint.
2. Make a "puddle" of paint on the side of the egg. Place a jewel in the "puddle". (Note: You can make the "puddles" as small or as large as you wish, just make sure it is large enough to hold the jewel in place.)
3. Repeat as many times as desired around the egg. (Reminder: If this egg is not on a stick, you will need to leave one side empty until it is dry.)
4. Let dry as described above.
5. Place on a decorative plate, an Easter basket, or make an arrangement for your table.
