I made these for my son and will put candy in them for Easter and they can be used as desk or shelf decoration after that. This project was inspired by the link below at Instructables by KaptinScarlet.



As I had everything on hand except the eggs, my only cost was the eggs and they had them 30% off at JoAnn fabrics so they only cost 69 cents for 6 eggs. The eggs are a little larger than standard Easter Eggs, but you could also get standard ones from the dollar store and would get more eggs.



Each egg takes about 1 glue stick and even though I used 3-4 coats of paint, it did not really take much, so I estimate the cost to be less than 15 cents per egg.



If anyone is interested in making these, I have posted a link of the how-to at Cut Out and Keep and on my blog at

I made a couple of these for the Easter swap last year. They are a lot of fun to make.

I never thought to put candy in those plastic eggs and paint them! What a great idea, I think I might do this and surprise my coworkers. Thanks! Smiley
