Quick-set concrete
2 large containers
A few balloons
Stirring rods
Gold paint
Tea lights

  1. Mix 1 cup concrete with ⅓ cup water. (Add more to slow setting time)
  2. Place a balloon on the end of a funnel, and fill with concrete.
  3. Detach the balloon, and blow up a little more with a hand pump. (Do not use your mouth!)
  4. Tie the balloon, and let the concrete set evenly by turning the balloon slowly.
  5. After a few hours, cut the balloon off with a box cutter. There might be some tiny cracks, which is what you want. Carefully chip away at the cracks until you have a hole big enough for a candle.
  6. Pour in some more wet concrete, and rotate it to cover all the sides. Apply more until desired thickness is achieved.
  7. Once dry, you can paint the inside with gold or bronze paint. Paint the outside if desired.
  8. Place a tealight in the egg, and enjoy the fiery glow of your new candle holder eggs!
