Egg Heads

These are one of the cutest and most popular decorated projects we have ever done. They make fun projects for kids, great place cards, ornaments, toys, gifts, and activities. detail of egg head This project should only be done with Blown Eggs. They will last longer, and some of the techniques used to decorate these eggs might affect hard boiled eggs and make them unsafe to eat. Blown Eggs also will last forever and make great keepsakes or ornaments.

Peach egg dye (optional)
Tacky glue
Curly hair in assorted colors
1-2-inch hats
Thin ribbon
Small googly eyes
Crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paint


detail of egg head Dye the blown eggs pale peach if desired, or else use white or brown eggs for different colored skin tones. Find the best surface to use as the face, and attach the hair to surround that area. If desired, add a hat or ribbons to the hair. Add the eyes and let dry. Once the glue is all dry, add the facial features with crayons, pencils, markers or paint. We used crayon in the eggs pictured because they were the easiest to use for our crafters.
