Enormous colorful plastic eggs look glaringly artificial, which is why there's wit in taking them to the natural place -- coating each with hardware-store joint compound to replicate an eggshell texture, then speckling them all over with paint for a quail-egg appearance.

One or several can be used to decorate a mantel or side table, or as a centerpiece on a large table.
