I loooooove Easter egg season! It’s so fun to come up with something new each year. This year I made myself chuckle with a few of these little guys. They’re pretty funny for an Easter egg hunt, or just for leaving in a bowl as decoration. Bonus points if you get this one:
Let’s make ’em!
- contact paper or adhesive vinyl
- scissors and craft knife
- optional (but it makes it a whole heckuva lot easier): Cricut cutting machine
- craft paint
Make Time: 1 Hour (Plus Drying Time)
I’m not gonna lie. I’ve been doing lots of cutting projects lately and while you totally could do them by hand, they are so much better and so much easier if you use a Cricut machine. No joke, cutting all of these words took about 3 minutes with the Cricut. By hand I’m sure it would have taken hours. But I digress.
Cut out your letters in phrases that you love. If you like mine, you can download the file right here! Upload it to the Cricut design space and cut, or print it onto your vinyl and cut out the letters by hand. Set your letters aside.
Hard boil your eggs and dye or paint them. I chose to paint these because I wanted really opaque, saturated colors. Just cover them with a coat or two of paint and let them dry thoroughly.
Stick your letters onto your eggs! It can help to use tweezers for placement if your letters are extra tiny. Press the letters into the eggs to be sure that they adhere thoroughly.
Hide these dudes all over the yard and make your family hunt for them! Or just take pictures and Instagram the pants off ’em. Either way, you’re pretty much gonna win at Easter. I said a hip, hop… xoxo
