The Easter egg hunt is over. The overabundance of Easter candy is now in the kids. How do you keep them entertained? How about some Easter egg boxes to take home some jellybeans? These boxes are super easy to create and require very few supplies. Take a cue from the Girl Scouts and set up a table outside, cover it with newspapers and let the kids create mementos of the day!
You will need:
Miniature Paper mache oval box
Acrylic paint, pink or any pastel color
Gold acrylic pant
Flat lace scraps (You can buy bags of misc. scrap lace in fabric stores for very little money)
1. Paint the box top and sides with pastel color. Paint the box bottom with the same pastel color. Let dry.
2. Paint the inside of top and bottom in gold acrylic paint (if desired) Let dry.
3. Cut pieces of various flat lace scraps
4. Decorate the top by gluing the scraps lace across. Slightly arc the lace so it resembles a decorated egg. Vary the lace strips with widths, designs and colors. You can even add rhinestones if you like. Let dry completely.
