Using a recycled grapevine wreath from Christmas, I bought 6 packages of different types of eggs from the dollar store. I used my hot glue gun to place the eggs. It only took about 1 hour to do, and the cost was about $8.
This article is in honor of my mom Patricia Churchman who, when she was alive, never let an Easter pass without going to our local chocolate shop and buying us the most beautiful chocolate eggs. They were so beautiful that we even did not want to eat them.
Just add marbles to this quick craft and you have a rabbit racing game. Draw and cut two rabbit ears from white paper. Color the center of the ears with pink marker. Glue these near the top of half an egg.
You'll want to make lots of these cute bunnies from those inexpensive plastic eggs. Great project for kids.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
sheet of construction paper
sheet of white paper
2 wiggly eyes
1 chenille stem
2 pom poms for cheeks
1 pom pom for nose
hot glue gun and glue sticks
Cut a heart shape from the fun foam for the feet. Glue the egg to the feet with the point in the back. This will help the bunny stand up straight. Cut two ears from colored construction paper and cut two inner ears from the white paper. Glue the inner ears to the colored ears. Open up the top of the egg slightly and add glue along the open edge of the egg. Attach each ear to the glue and snap the egg closed to hold ears in place. Glue on wiggly eyes, pom pom cheeks and pom pom nose. Cut six one-inch pieces from the chenille stem to form the whiskers. Glue three to each side of cheeks. Cut some teeth from the white paper and glue just under cheeks. Glue on a cotton ball tail.
Make simple Easter egg picks from plastic eggs, straw and ribbon. I'm using small plastic eggs with regular size straws. I think if you are using larger eggs, you might want to use a sturdier material, like a wood dowel.
A colorful, fun craft just in time for spring! Glue the halves of the plastic egg together, then decorate it with pieces of ribbon and fabric trim. Cut an additional piece of ribbon and glue it in a loop to the top of the egg for a hanger.
