I am currently working on my decorations to make the house more spring-like, I tend not to do strictly Easter decorations because we celebrate Passover as well and there isn’t much you can do to decorate for both together so I try to be rather neutral. Plus spring decorations can stay up for much longer and with not much time these days that works out well for me. This idea came to me while looking through my Oriental Trading catalog that I received in the mail, I saw this bird craft that wasn’t made with a plastic Easter egg, it used some other base but I looked at it and decided that it would work because that way I could make it with things I had on hand.
Here is what you need:
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- 2 colors scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge
- Hot glue gun
First, hot glue all the eggs shut by running some hot glue on the inside rim of the egg before closing them. I used blue and yellow eggs because I wanted blue and gold glittered eggs for my finished product, it is helpful if the glitter and the egg color are close in shade.
Sixth, make the beaks by cutting out small triangles on the folded edge of your second piece of scrapbook paper, I chose a solid color for this. Then hot glue them on the bigger end of the egg with the flat side aligned with the flat side of the wings.
Lastly, display in your home! I have a circular votive holder over my mantle and I always change out votives for some type of seasonal decoration, and I am very happy with the way the birds turned out!
