Game of Thrones Fans, These DIY Dragon Eggs Are for You
Winter is coming … no, not really because it’s spring. But for you Game of Thrones fans anticipating the upcoming seventh season, it’s the perfect time of year to decorate your Easter eggs to look like they came straight from a dragon.
You’ll need some felt or paper confetti dots, which you can make yourself with some scissors or a special hole puncher — or you can take a shortcut and just buy some that are already made. (We took the shortcut!)
Buy: Felt Confetti Dots, $10 for 100 dots at Shop Sweet Lulu
Start with a clean, dry hard-boiled egg and stick a small square of double-sided tape to the very top of the egg. Place your first confetti dot so it’s covering that piece of tape.
Next, add some double stick tape underneath that first dot. Use two pieces (each going halfway around the egg) to make sure the tape sits flat.
Layer overlapping felt confetti dots until you have a full row going all the way around your egg. Don’t worry about it if the dots are a little crooked; the egg will still come out great.
Repeat until the entire egg is covered, making sure the rows continue to overlap each other.
Craft tip: Use a similar color palette — like all reds or blues — for the best (most dragon-like) results.
To finish off the egg at the bottom, add one more single confetti dot, just like you did with the top. Make at least two more and you’ll be just like Daenerys.
Did you finish? Congrats. You can now reward yourself by rewatching the last few episodes of season six. This way, you stand half a chance of remembering where things left off! Happy watching! Oh, and happy Easter!
