What You'll Need

Plastic Easter Eggs Candle Concrete Mix Tape Lighter Pam or oil Bobby Pin Knife Brush + Napkins Bag Water

Step 1

Start by mixing your concrete mix with water until you have an even consistency. Don’t make it too runny because it’ll be harder to work with (leaking etc) .

Step 2

Spray the inside of your egg with PAM. This will help the plastic egg come off later. Than fill the bottom half of your egg with concrete mix and insert your small plastic egg in the center.

Step 3

Attach the top half of your plastic egg. Wipe it clean and tape the crease to make sure it’s secure and doesn’t come apart while setting.  Then lay it slightly on the side and let it set for 24 hours.

Step 4

Once your concrete has set remove the top of your (plastic) egg and twist your small egg that’s inside your concrete. It should slide right out.

Step 5

Following that wipe clean the top half of the inside of your plastic egg and use a brush to remove any loose concrete on the bottom half of your egg.

Step 6

Than use a lighter to melt the tip of your egg to create a small hole (for pouring your melted wax).

Step 7

Once you’ve melted a hole use a knife to remove the melted plastic.  You can also clean up the edges a bit with some scissors.

Step 8

To avoid your candle wax from seeping out cover any holes in the top half of your egg. Make sure your egg doesn’t have snags on the inside as well (so your wax doesn’t get stuck to it once it sets)

Step 9

Here’s how I taped my holes on the outside of the egg.

Step 10

Okay once again spray the inside of your egg with PAM and secure it together.

Step 11

MELTING AND POURING YOUR CANDLE! Cook the candle on medium heat for about 10 minutes and it should completely melt.

Step 12

Remove your wick and set it aside.

Step 13

Let your candle wax cool off a bit and pour it into your prepped egg.

Step 14

Than attach a bobby pin to the tip of your wick and insert it into the candle egg.

Step 15

You might need to add more wax as the candle starts setting.  At least I had too.

Step 16

REMOVING YOUR PLASTIC EGG! Okay so the top of your plastic candle should slide right off if you twist it. You can always warm it up a bit with your lighter if it’s not budging.

Step 17

Melt an area of the plastic egg where there is concrete and cut into it lightly with a knife.

Step 18

Once you’ve cut into it simply pry one of the edges up and the plastic egg should slide right off. That’s it!

That’s it! I hope this inspires you to decorate for Easter!  Happy crafting everyone! I’ll see you next time!
