Craft: Spring Egg Cups

About a week back I was crafting with egg cartons, you may remember this post. Well, I couldn't just stop at one craft. Who can, right? I wanted to see what else I could make with the egg cartons. That's when I came up with these cute little egg cups. They're easy to make and would be perfect for a kid craft.

Supplies:
Egg carton - picture above
Glue
Paint
Clear Acrylic paint
Decoupage glue - something non-toxic

Cut egg cartons into individual cups. You will need two per egg cup.

Glue together, refer to picture.

Paint anyway you wish. Once dry, cover with a layer of acrylic paint. Paint the inside (where the egg sits) with non-toxic decoupage glue. Let dry. Done.

* I don't recommend eating out of these egg cups. They're just for display.

These are so cute! I could see myself making a few of these to use throughout the year - the clear acrylic paint really makes them look chic :)

Wow Jessica, your egg cups are brilliant!

Also, kinda impressed with the fact that you're recycling up a storm over there. Perfect in my books. :)

Neat idea! Can picture these as a grouping on a mantel, each holding a colored egg.

Another wonderful idea for fun time with my granddaughter and her little friend. They are coming for 3 days so between this,the precious paper strip eggs, and the dying of eggs they should stay busy. genie
