Cut a slit into each egg on one side from the bottom to the top (see photo below). Be careful, but some are trickier than others – don’t sweat it if you get a crack, it won’t matter.
Once each egg half is cut, sand the egg-halves enough to make the surface a tad rough (this allows the paint to stick).
Next you will need to spray paint the outside of each egg (or leave unpainted for a more summery, festive look!). Allow the first coat to dry and spray a second coat.
Once dry, attach the egg-halves to each individual lightbulb on the strand (see photo below).
Voila – what super cute fun lights – add to your deck for your next dinner party, hang them for a birthday party, in a kids play room, for wedding decorations, etc. – what a great way to repurpose plastic eggs!
