Step 3: Slide dowel rod into hole that you drilled in step 1. Slip your eggs onto dowel rod until desired heights is achieved and cut top of dowel off. Leave about a 1/2 inch at the top.

Step 4: Give all wood pieces a couple coats of paint and slide eggs back onto dowel. Now add the 2nd circle of wood to the top of dowel. (Glue dowel rod in place if desired, I want to keep mine so I can change out the eggs and therefore I left mine unglued.)

Step 5: Glue the larger piece of round wood onto the top to act as a “plate”.
