How to Make a Dragon Egg Instructions

Starting at the bottom gently push in the thumb tacks overlapping them slightly. Continue to the top. Took me about 45 minutes to do one 3″ tall egg. You could possibly spray paint these or use gold thumb tacks.  Be careful inserting the pins. If you wiggle them too much it creates a large whole in the egg and they will fall out. These eggs are meant to be viewed and not handled much.

    I wonder if using some sort of glue would help with the durability/longevity of the egg? Like a hot glue gun or something? I know a lot of glues are problematic with that kind of foam, but worth a thought?

      We’ve thought of that and I’m sure that might help though it would be a bit tedious for sure. As long as it’s just sitting and not handled it should be fine. But a tiny dab of glue on each pin would secure it. Not sure what would be best for foam though. Appreciate the input!
