Fun with Wood eggs!

So I posted a couple of wood eggs a little while back and I finally made a few more this week.  I have not painted them yet.  I am still undecided as to how I want to paint them.  Water color? acrylic? just stain?  Hmmmm....
One thing I have realized is that eggs are hard to photograph!  Because they are round it is hard to give a true idea of what the designs really look like.  In real life they are much cuter, but this gives you an idea  :-)

This first little bunny likes to  hop along in the nice spring landscape. And on the other side of the egg is his little house :-)

Next I have another little bunny hopping around happily in the spring grass and flowers!

This next egg.  Cute mushrooms with a cute little ladybug on top.  the back side is grass and flowers.

Sticking to the mushroom woodsy theme I made some cute gnome garden girls.

This next egg was inspired by my Laying hens :-) I have a hen on one side and a rooster on the other.

And last some butterflies :-)  

Eggs are fun to wood burn, but because they are round it makes in kinda tricky to work with.  It is much easier to wood burn a flat surface :-)  

I can't remember if I showed this little peg doll yet.  In the past I have usually just painted my peg dolls, but I have tried my hand at wood burning the last couple I have made and I can't decide which I like better.  

Happy crafting!


  1. I love your art style. The eggs turned out SO cute! You have a gift!
    You have a gift indeed.

  2. Hi, I am in Australia and I was wondering if you were still making these gorgeous eggs or if you were interested? I would be wanting 3 or 4 sets of each depending. Please reply to if you are able. Thanks
