Here is how I did it:
I took 12 egg bottoms (which I only ended up using 11).
spray painted the top side and waited for that to dry, then painted the bottom side. Make sure to use a spray paint that is specifically for plastic. It took me about 3-4 coats; waiting 20 minutes between coats.
waited for them to dry overnight before I started the next step. Then, I found a piece of scrap wood in our garage. It was flawless looking and I didn't even need to sand it or anything. Make sure your eggs are fully covered by the spray paint.
Start by gluing the center egg to the center of the board. I used E6000, which is super strong. Use a tiny dot in the bottom if the egg then use a dot on each side of the egg to connect the ones side by side
Keep doing this until you have glued all of your eggs down.
Wait 24 hrs before you place your tealights in!
