Enchanted Dragon Egg Decor

Dragons are an important part of the wizard world and a favorite of Hogwarts gamekeeper Rubeus Hagrid, who even kept one as a pet! Use these Enchanted Dragon Eggs for Magical Creature Hunts or as extra party dcor.

What you'll need: Large plastic Easter eggs, metallic gold paint and fleck-stone paint (available at craft or home improvement stores)

Directions: Find an open, outdoor space to paint the eggs. Protect the surface that you'll be painting on with a layer of newspaper or plastic trash bags. Spray some of the plastic eggs with fleck-stone paint for a mysterious, speckled finish and others with metallic gold to reference Harry's first task in the Twiwizard Tournament from Goblet of Fire: stealing a golden dragon egg from a nesting mother.

Tip: For extra "enchantment", add a final coat of shimmery glitter spray to the painted eggs.
