Dyeing Wooden Eggs Tutorial Video

We sell tons of unfinished wood eggs but wondered at how to color/decorate them.  There’s many different ways to do it.

I thought this video was a good one.  It shows how to dye wood eggs and then uses a butcher block conditioner to provide a nice smooth surface (dye can rub off).  Take a look.  I can personally attest to the quality of that particular wood butcher block conditioner shown in the video, I use it for cutting boards myself…

The eggs shown in the video looks to be similar to our standing wood hen egg which has a flat base so it can stand up. Great for decorations but not so great for egg rolls.  These wood eggs are better for egg rolls…  (link at the end is to the White House’s egg roll website)

A new Christmas Tree Turning

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We just added a new wooden Christmas tree turning to the website.  Take a look.  It’s sized right in between our other two wooden Christmas tree turnings – 2″ tall.

This one was sent to us by accident.  It was wrong sized, supposed to be our largest  2-3/4″ tall version.  But we liked it so are selling it online now.

The full line up of wooden Christmas tree turnings are at here.

 

A new Halloween feature up today.

P9120003We just updated the main page with a new Halloween feature.  Witches, ghosts, bats, pumpkins, leaves, and more!  Pirates are popular during Halloween so we added a pirate themed subcategory.

Most of these items are cutouts.  This means that if you drill a tiny hole, you can add a string and hang them on your Christmas tree!

Below, a picture of the pirate themed cutouts we offer.  Includes mermaids, alligators, whales and Captain Hook’s hook.
