Foam Easter Egg CraftEaster is right around the corner and my family and I are eggstatic! We love when the Easter bunny hops into town every year and welcome him with fun Easter décor throughout our house. This year, my kids and I wanted to create some simple and fun Easter décor items using Dollar Tree’s adorable foam eggs! We couldn’t decide on what craft to do, so we chose two; an Easter egg tree and a glitter egg hanging nest. These crafty décor ideas were so easy and fun to make and only cost us a few dollars. Try them out for yourself!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 12-pc. Foam Eggs with Ribbon Loops
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • Galvanized Steel & Twine Plant Container
  • 32-oz. Decorative White Stones
  • Wood Branches

Easter Egg Tree:

  1. Paint branches or sticks from your yard with white paint and allow to dry.
  2. Place sticks in your plant container, and fill the container with the white rocks.
  3. Hang foam eggs from the branches, and enjoy!

Gather These EGGcelent Supplies:

  • 12-pc. Foam Eggs with Ribbon Loops
  • 2-oz. Mod Podge® Craft Adhesive
  • 67-cu.in. Floral Moss
  • 2-pk. Metal Containers with Lids
  • Assorted 9” Latex Balloons
  • 256-ft. Twine
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)

Glitter Egg Hanging Nest:

  1. Inflate and tie off a 9″ Balloon. Cut Twine into several 4-ft. strands
  2. Fill a metal container halfway with Mod Podge® and soak several feet of twine in that adhesive.
  3. Wrap the adhesive-covered twine around the inflated balloon, beginning with a loop at the top (near the tie) and working your way around.  Repeat soaking and wrapping with each strand of twine until the egg is about 1/3 covered in twine.  Begin each strand where the previous strand left off.
  4. Allow 3-4 hours for the adhesive to dry, then pop and remove the balloon to reveal the twine nest.
  5. Cut a hole in the front of the nest large enough to reach your hand through.
  6. Add floral moss to the base of the twine nest, secure with hot glue if desired.
  7. Cut the loops off of the foam eggs, secure eggs to the moss (and each other) with a dot of hot glue.  Then hang (using another piece of twine, attached to the top loop) and enjoy!
