    What You Can Make with Easter Eggs

    What You can Make with Easter Eggs

    Did you have any Easter decor with any of these kind of Easter eggs?  I made some fun topiaries with them.  Let me show you what you can do with these leftover Easter eggs, besides saving them for next year! 

    These eggs are styrofoam, not the hard plastic kind you can fill with candy.  Don’t have any eggs left?  You can find them here.  Cut them in half as shown.  These knives are the best craft knives ever!  You can find them on my Essential Craft supplies list.

    This is how they may look inside.  There was a little stick inside each of my eggs, which must have been part of the manufacturing process.  Use a fine skewer and put it into the cut side of the halves.  This will make it easy to paint them without getting paint on your fingers.   Be VERY careful not to push the skewer all the way through the other side of the egg!  Paint the finished edge of each of the egg halves with glossy red acrylic paint.  Keeping the eggs on the skewers and sticking them into a piece of foam will let them dry without messing up the paint.  You know, those skewers are great for cooking things like Honey Ginger Chicken Skewers, too!  
    Paint accents on the red eggs.  The wider end of the egg should be painted something like this. (painting is NOT my forte)

    The narrower end of the egg should get painted as shown above.  I painted on the face and used  a Sharpie Paint Pen to add the little antenna.  

    Dip a pencil eraser into black acrylic paint and use it to paint polka dots on the tops of the red eggs.

    Your eggs should be looking something like this!  Can you guess what we are making now?

    Check out some of my fun craft videos on my channel over on  YouTube!  

    Get two different colors of green paint, a little clay pot and a paint brush.  Using short strokes with a small paint brush, paint blades of grass around your flower pot. When you have gone all the way around the pot with one shade of green, go around the pot with the second shade of green paint.  Wedge a piece of dry floral foam into your little flower pot.  I grabbed a couple of bunches of artificial daisies…

    …used wire cutters to cut them into individual stems. 

    Stick the daisies in the pot, use low temp hot glue to to add a ladybug to the side of your pot.

    Add an additional ladybug to the daisies in the pot and you have a sweet and cheery little display to brighten up your day, or that of someone who could use a little spot of cuteness!  These make an adorable Mother’s Day gift, too!  Find somewhere you need a little pop of color and spread the joy with ladybugs!  No one will know they are from leftover Easter eggs!

    1. oh my gosh Chloe what a beautiful arrangement and such a great idea on those left over Easter eggs. Those lady bugs with the buffalo check are perfect together.

      1. Thanks so much Terrie! Isn’t it funny, when you can’t just go out and buy something, how creative it makes you!

    2. Super cute Chloe! Adorable wreath and daisy pot!

    3. Hi Chloe, do you wonder why I am never able to comment on your wonderful blog posts. Your ads/ jam my browser chrome. So many ads many moving, FLASHING, and the u-tube things make it impossible to view the actual content as that loads last…usually I simply give up—Today I was cantankerous enough to wait it all out.

      I’m on a Mac Catalina Os 10.15.2 with way enough power to run anything—and your site along with other bloggers using multiple ad systems just aren’t worth waiting it out!

      The Ladybugs are adorable….too bad it took 7 minutes to get to them, and three stalls, 1 crash on the system. Like I said, I was being cantankerous and waiting it out!

      PS I never NEVER NEVER click on ads anywhere. If I want to look at a product, I go through google or amazon and look up what I want to buy and where.

      From the Mediavine site…VIEWABILITY
      Using lazy-loading and other speed tricks, we maintain over 70% viewability, making advertisers VERY happy.

      That’s for the advertisers—what about the users…I think it sucks, no other word for it. Just thought you might want to add these thoughts to your analytics. Sandi

      1. I am reaching out to Mediavine to see what is going on…I haven’t had anyone else ever report this and I have asked several people to open my site and report back to me. I am so sorry.

    4. Hi Chloe,

      These are super cute and how wonderful are they with the wreath.

      So creative!

      Cindy

    5. Instead of borrowing a cup of sugar, I’d like to borrow a cup of your creativity. This is an adorable project!

      1. Oh Sandra, you are so kind! Sometimes I can’t fall asleep at night because the ideas are swimming around my head! I am getting ready to bake my first cakelets in my Nordicware pan this weekend, I sure wish you were close by and making them for me! Wish me luck!

    6. How creative. Considering our circumstances lately, what a fun gift to leave on a neighbor’s porch.

      1. That is exactly what I thought, Annie, to leave them on the porches up and down my street!
