The Rabken Egg Results

Taking up the conversation from my last post, I promised to share photos of my rabken egg project. The egg is about six inches tall so I had a task ahead of me.

If you remember from yesterday, the eggs a rabken leaves as gifts are hollow. I began by drawing an oval on one side.

Then I cut an opening in the rabken egg.

A bit of primer was next.

Some pink paint since Spring is nearly here.

Tinsel, must have some tinsel . . .
and some Dresden trim too – in silver.

      Had to break out the glitter. Who knows what would happen if I walked around without glitter glistening from somewhere on my face!

    Added some flowers here . . .

and there. Added a banner too.

    But it’s missing something. What is it missing?

    Oh, I know, it needs a little Spring bunny.

A bunny home! There now, the rabken should be very happy.

Maybe, if I keep the garden untended, she’ll leave me another egg. (Not a problem!)  I think this bunny needs a condo for a friend. Oh that’s right, I already have another egg. Hm-m-m-m. Guess I better get busy!

It’s rabken season!

  6. That is just too, too cute...

    It reminds me of the little sugar egg diaramas my mom made us once as kids. She told us they weren't edible... but they were made of sugar, we were sure she was wrong.

    Turns out she wasn't wrong, they tasted horrible, and years later we have little sugar eggs filled with a magical scene inside, and nibbled slightly on the outside.

    Hopefully no one wants to nibble rabken eggs!
