Plastic Easter eggs are EVERYWHERE during this time of year. They are probably one of the most inexpensive, if not THE most inexpensive Easter decoration you can purchase at a retail store. You can buy an entire bag for less than a dollar! Being the cheapskate I am, I wanted to think of some Easter egg decorating ideas, particularly with plastic Easter eggs, because, well… I’m cheap. Here are some fun and easy ideas that you can do in a jiffy just in time for Easter this coming Sunday!
Make a plastic Egg Garland.
Unsnap each plastic egg and snap them back together around a ribbon to create your own Easter egg garland in minutes. Hang it on a mirror, on your mantel, or use larger ones and drape them on your stair railing.
Embellish them with ribbon.
Using some glue, ribbon, and rhinestones turn rather drab store bought eggs to fab store bought eggs that you can take out and use again next year.
Make a wreath.
Talk about a complete transformation! Cover them in yarn and make a yarn Egg Wreath just like this whimsical one from The Sweet Survival. I love how she used both small and large eggs.
Display them in glass jars.
Gather similar color hues and display them in apothecary jars or vases. Don’t be afraid to mix them up with natural glass fillers to match your décor.
Add your own artwork.
I may have saved the best for last! Alisa Burke, took an ordinary plastic egg and used Sharpies to decorate her eggs. Mix the tops and bottoms when your done for a fun look!
