The old song is playing in my mind "June is busting out all over" (I sing a LOT) love singing,
You Will Need.
4 Plastic Disposable Glasses
2 Lengths of Dowel about 4 inches long to fit the center of the base of the glasses.
1 steel Knitting needle about size 3 and half mm Cut two pieces about 3 and half inches long
Off-Cut of Ostrich Egg with hole in the middle to fit on the top of the base.
2/ Sand the dowel where you have drilled.
3/ Glue the knitting needles in to the dowel with araldite,Make sure you hold the axle straight until it sets.
4/Paint the axle white
5/Decorate the wheels before you glue them to the axles. I put gold braid just inside the wheel then Pearls and roses in the centres but you can use nice buttons or earings
6/ Glue wheels onto the Dowel making sure they sit nice and flat on the table till glue has set.
7/ Paint the off-cut of egg and braid and pearl it, , you can glue some thin lace under the edge if you like.
8/ Cut some cardboard and paint it white. I glue this under the egg cut-out so you don't see where the coach has been glued to the base when you have glued you finished coach to the mirror.
****Thankyou so much Jaquie ..I look forward to making some of these for Christmas egg projects now!
