unfinished wooden eggs
acrylic craft paint
mini screw eyes

1. Paint each egg as desired and let dry. Use an awl to make a small starter hole in the top of each, and then secure a screw eye into the top.
2. Brush glue where desired on an egg, and then dip it into a bowl full of beads. Arrange the beads with your fingers if necessary. Repeat until the desired pattern is complete.
3. When the glue is dry, tie a ribbon to the screw eye and hang each finished egg on the miniature tree.
Place a Tree of the Dead right in the middle of a Halloween table as a warning to guests not to stay too long.
