Easter Egg Hunt: Did you know...
Our inspiration for these Easter egg cups came from the very creative Paper Source blog. If you have not checked out the PS yet, make some time to soon. For a tutorial on what you will need and how to make these egg cups, click on the link below.
|Paper Source: Egg Cup Holders Directions|
Simple directions are: Cut two contrasting pieces of card stock to fit around a real or plastic Easter egg; cut the height to your preference; and fringe one edge of the paper by cutting little slits almost to the top and all the way across. If you are blessed to own a pair of Martha Stewart's fringe scissors, well, you rock!
Wrap paper strip around and either tape or glue it together.
Embellish it with flowers and buttons as we did, or whatever you like to give it a Spring/Easter look.
Place your eggs in the cup and use them as: a place setting, centerpiece decoration or take home favor.
We pulled out a picket fence looking box we had, and decided to spruce it up a bit so that our Easter egg cups could nest in it.
We made a simple little paper flag garland, taped the pieces onto a piece of yarn, and hung it using mini clothes pins, and added Easter grass to the box.
Oh, and who is that their?! Our little friend, baby chick! He just looks so cute in his little spot amongst the Easter eggs!
Plastic eggs can be filled with some special Easter treats, candy or stickers, for the children as a special Easter treat on Easter!
Maybe even filled with some loose change!
We love the idea of putting a slip of paper in the eggs with scripture verses that tell the Easter story.
Decorative and functional, double duty at it's finest! Be inspired, get creative!
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.
The Lord is good to all,
And His tender mercies are over all His works.
