I love nesting dolls. I also love DIY crafts. When I saw these nesting eggs, I was so excited to purchase them. This is a set of four unpainted blank nesting eggs. The largest egg is approximately 5.25 inches in length. It's pretty tall, in my opinion. These are hand crafted and handmade eggs. Because they are handmade, you will possibly see some flaws. Again, that is because these are handmade. I was actually quite impressed with how well they were carved. I know that I could not carve a piece of wood to shaped like an egg, like this. I was very impressed. Some of the eggs did have eyes in the wood. It didn't bother me. There are extra steps that were taken to keep that part of the wood solid. I believe they were filled with a strong wood putty. Again, that is fine by me because these eggs were meant to be painted. These will not show any of those particular flaws. When these eggs were being grinded, you could definitely see a little bit of the grinding dust (a little gray) on the outer part of the egg. Not a big deal to me. Like I said, these eggs were meant to be painted or branded on. The eggs open and close just fine. Anytime I've ever had a problem, this company has always taken care of me by correcting it quickly. I love purchasing from this company because of their quality of product. I absolutely love these nesting eggs and highly recommend them if you love DIY crafts.
Fun stuff. Was gonna let a grand girl paint these but I got to dabbling in the paints and I am on my way.....got to finish up and I'll have a gift for her. This set of four egg shaped wooden nessing doll fit very snugg together, in fact I have had to sand just a bit on the rims of them all to make it easier to nestle them together and apart. They are raw wood and has already been sanded smooth so they except the paint well and 1 coat of acrylic would have been enough except there was a knot in the wood I wanted to make sure it did not show. And knots happen so it was not a problem. They really are a nice gift and anyone can use their imagination to make them very special. I am enjoying them and I believe my grand girl will too. I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review.
I was excited to recieve my blank nesting eggs. But the top one didn't quite fit. I was told they would replace it....but they never sent it. I've tried to fix it myself, but it didn't go as planned. 😞
I am mostly happy with this purchase of nesting blank wood eggs. I am very crafty and like to create my own custom decor for the holidays, so I saw a lot of potential with these eggs and what I could do with them. I felt like it was good value since they came with four, I could technically have 4 decorations out of just this one thing. I was impressed with the solid construction of these straight out of the box. All the eggs fit together perfectly and seamlessly. They line up the way they are supposed to. My only issue with them and the reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is because at the top of the biggest egg, it looks kind of weird. To me it looks like the wood was imperfect and they tried to fill it in with wood putty or something. I have not painted it yet so I am not sure if this will be noticeable when I paint, but it is super notice able right now. I did not really expect to see imperfections in such a small piece of crafting wood.. Other then that one thing I am pretty happy with these and can not wait to get started on them for easter.
