Easter Craft: Egg Holder

I knew one day all those scraps of gift wrap and toilet paper rolls I hoarded would come in handy. And now here they are combined to create a festive looking egg holder. Simple directions below.

Supplies:
toilet paper roll
glue stick
fabric glue
ribbon
decorative paper
green paper
exacto knife
scissors


Cover a toilet paper roll with any paper of your choice. Let dry. I used a glue stick to adhere it to the TP roll. I find the paper stays flat and smooth using the glue stick.


Cut the roll into four sections using an sharp exacto knife and scissors. You should now have four pieces that look like the picture above.

Glue a piece of green paper in the inside of the tube. Match up the seam of the green paper with the seam of the decorative paper.

Cut the green paper to resemble grass. Glue a ribbon around the roll where the decorative paper and green paper meet. Done.

Thank you So Much! I have Washi covered eggs to give as holiday gifts to friends tomorrow, and I had no idea how to make holders for them. Like you, I also have cardboard toilet paper rolls hoarded. This will work out nicely. Since this is for the holidays, I may try a different paper than green for the grass, I'll have to see what I have on hand. Again thank you for this idea. You've saved me.
