Happy Easter everyone!
Some of you are fully aware it’s been a little busy for me lately, and my plans for decorating Easter Eggs has been put on the back burner while I attempt to meet other deadlines. Although it’s cutting into my blogging time, I’m pleased to say that design demands are picking up around here and for that, I’m ever so grateful!
This post comes a bit later than I hoped, but I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring you a little Easter cheer, especially as I haven’t been on the blog much lately. So, today I’m sharing these quick and easy DIY Easter Egg Favours I made this morning. They’re super easy to make and are the perfect addition to your table settings this Easter, as well as other springtime entertainment you may have coming up. What’s even better is that you don’t need to take a trip to the craft store for this project; most of the materials I’ve used here are recycled packaging. Best of all, these are not just for Easter, you can customise the contents and use these all year round as pretty party favours for your guests!
- Mini Easter Eggs in assorted colours
- 2 Small Striped Party Paper Bags. Here I’ve cut recycled bags at the seams to get a single sheet of paper
- 1 Sheets of Patterned Scrapbook Paperstock. Here I’m using double-sided Perfect Harmony Avery from Daisy Bucket Designs cut in for equal squares
- Cardboard tubes. Here I used the inner cardboard tubes from loo rolls
- 1 Sheet of clear cellophane wrap. Here I’m recycling left overs from my recent flower shop purchase.
- Assorted Ribbons
- Cello Tape
- Cut papers into squares, ensure they’re big enough to cover the cardboard tubes entirely
- Wrap paper around cardboard tube and tuck the excess paper inside the ends of tubes
- Cut cellophane sheets approximately twice a long as the cardboard tube with just enough to wrap around them with a slight overlap, then secure with cello tape.
- Slide the covered cardboard tube to the centre of the cellophane wrap to allow room for twisted ends
- Cut ribbons into desired lengths
- Tie ribbon around twisted cellophane wrap at one end of the cardboard tube
- Fill the tube with mini Easter Eggs
- Twist the loose end of cellophane wrap and secure with ribbon
