Looking for a green alternative to plastic Easter eggs? Then try out these egg containers made out of egg cartons. They're easy to make and can be used year after year. Not to mention, it's a fun craft for kids (and adults).
*I don't recommend placing loose candy in these containers. Instead use candy like chocolate kisses or tiny toys.
Japanese masking tape
Here's what you'll start with, a basic egg carton.
Cut out into individual little cups.
Paint the tops of the cups. If you plan on hiding these outside, paint a couple coats of decoupage medium on them as well. They'll hold up better that way.
Place two cups together and seal with Japanese masking tape. To make the tape lie flat on the cups, cut little slits on the edges of the tape. Done.
These little containers can be used for other occasions such as parties and gifts.
