Hand painted surprise eggs

Years ago I remember seeing in a magazine some glass jars that had been painted on the inside and I loved how they looked.

I then filled them with chocolate Easter eggs and a little chick and hung them on my Easter tree! Now only if I could find time to finish my hand-made birds.....
