Food Craft: Pop Tart Easter Eggs

 

Turning food into something creative really is a lot of fun!
When looking for idea's for our upcoming Easter party, we spotted these blueberry Pop Tarts, and well... the wheel's started spinning! Have a look at what we made...


I think most of us can agree, we love the easy, budget savvy food craft projects that deliver something creatively unexpected and well received.
 We think these little eggs did that!

What you need are:
Pop Tarts, Parchment paper or wax paper, egg cookie cutter, ribbon, string or in our case {strips from a recycled sheet}.


Unwrap your Pop Tarts and place on a cutting board. Take your egg cookie cutter and place in on top of the Pop Tart positioning it to get the best cut. Press down firmly.The outer crust should fall off, leaving the Pop Tart stuck to the cookie cutter. Gently begin pushing the Pop Tart from the cutter by rotating and pushing at the same time until it releases. {thankfully, none of ours broke during this process!}.



This is what they should look like once they are cut out.


Now, you get to dress up your sweet little eggs!
Using your parchment paper, cut off a piece large enough to make a little wrap. Place your egg in the center of the parchment paper and fold over toward you making a cuff, turn the egg over and do the same on the back, fold in the sides and wrap with your ribbon or twine to hold it together. These are delicate, so gentle handling is required.



Display your egss for your Easter entertaining, or, for a nice after school/work treat for your family!

We hope we have inspired you to get creative today! Remember to keep it Homespun!

  22. So, so cute! Pop Tarts take me back to my childhood. I always wanted to try them, but they were forbidden in my house. So, they always seemed sorta magical and out-of-reach to me with their dazzling sprinkles and their handy hand-sized shape. I love the way you've given this childhood classic an extra boost of magic and whimsy!
