Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Stand the egg up on the wide end and holding the narrow end use serrated knife to cut about 1/3 off one side of the egg. The cut should be slightly curved inward to create the barrel opening. Use the teaspoon to “scoop” out the center of the egg to create the hollow barrel leaving about a 1/2 inch thick wall. Cut opposite sides off the ball. You should have about a 1/2 inch thick rounded disc left for the wheel. Spray the inside of the barrel and the wheel Fuchsia Bright, being sure to hold the can 12 inch away. Paint the outside of the egg Calypso Sky.
  • 3
    Cut two craft sticks to about 2-1/4 inch. Measure about 1/4 inch back from the rounded end of the craft sticks and make a cut into the side about 1/8 inch using the serrated knife. Make another cut right next to the first cut to create a 1/8 inch wide groove. Cut two more sticks to about 1-1/2 inch. Cut two wood dowel pieces to about 3 inch long. Spray paint all the wood pieces and a toothpick Fuchsia Bright and let dry.
  • 4
    Glue the 2-1/4 inch craft sticks into the front narrow end of the egg, about 3/4 inch apart with the grooves facing up. Be careful not to push the sticks all the way through the barrel. Push a toothpick through the center of the wheel. Place the wheel between the sticks in the front resting the toothpick in the grooves. Trim the ends of the toothpick to stick out just past the groove on either side of the sticks and glue a Pink pom pom to each end of the toothpick. Glue the Pink ribbon around the edge of the wheel.
  • 5
    Glue the two 1-1/2 inch craft stick legs, round side down, into the bottom of the barrel about 1-1/2 inch in from the back of the barrel and about 1-1/2 inch apart. Glue the two wood dowel handles into the back of the barrel about 1-1/2 inch apart. Wrap Black ribbon to the ends of the handles.
