Turn simple plastic eggs into magical, decorated dragon’s eggs with a tiny Fimo dragon to go inside!
You will need:
- Plastic eggs (opening eggs not essential unless adding a dragon!)
- Low melt glue gun
- Acrylic paint including metallics and brushes
Heat the glue gun and simply draw on your pattern – we found lumpy dots simple, spirals or scales – which take some doing! The glue dries quick and is very hot so be careful.
Once dry, decide on your acrylic paint colours. We opted for a base coat initially.
Once that was dry, we then used techniques like dry brushing or sponging to add additional metallic colours.
Leave these to dry. We found leaving them in an empty egg box worked well. In fact, we still store them in one now!
Finally, we decided to make our own tiny Dragon using Fimo. But if you are not creative enough for that, you can buy some lovely minis on Ebay or use any you may have from your small world play items.
We added lots of detail to our Dragon – we think he is super cute!
Here he is – freshly hatched out of his egg!

These look great! Love them. Especially love the cute dragon.
Thank you 😊
Ah I love these! I might have to pester my mom to give me her endless stash of plastic easter eggs so I can hatch some dragons 😁
Ahhh it’s so worth it. We could make so many different eggs with various patterns and colours. A super huge clutch of Dragon eggs!
