Handmade Easter Gifts

Who doesn’t love a little bit of chocolate over the Easter long weekend? Instead of a basket or a treasure hunt we decided to make a gift bag with a difference – our very own egg cases! These are easy, lots of fun and will leave everyone wondering how you got the Easter eggs inside!

ITEMS NEEDED:

  • Balloons
  • Craft Glue
  • Thin string
  • Scissors
  • Mini Easter Eggs
  • A spoon

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Stretch the balloon open and place 4-5 eggs inside.
  2. Blow the balloon up to the size of an Easter egg – this can be small, medium or large, whichever you prefer.
  3. Cover your chosen string in glue and begin wrapping the balloon in the string. Try not to leave large gaps or your eggs might fall out!
  4. Once your balloon is covered in string leave the balloon to dry.
  5. After the string dries use a spoon to separate the string from the balloon.
  6. Pop the balloon and cut it in to pieces to ensure the mini eggs fall out. You will need to do this through the gaps in the string.
  7. Remove the balloon remnants and your egg shell is complete! All the delicious chocolatey gifts can now been seen from the outside.
