Tips, Tools & Techniques - Cheap & Easy Easter Eggs

Hello! Here's our regular feature where we share tips, tools & techniques that have caught our eye, things we have Pinned, and things we have tried. These are probably not going to change your life(!) but might make it a bit easier...

Happy Easter!! As part of a Recovery Arts event, we held an Easter Egg decorating session. Here's how it went:


Materials:

For the Eggs -

  • Cheap Chocolate Eggs (the ones from the 99p store worked a treat! - We used a selection of One Direction and Thomas ones but you would never know it!)
  • Chocolate Buttons, Edible Glitter, Hundreds and Thousands, Writing Icing etc
  • Candy Melts or similar for "glue"
For the Packaging - 
  • Inner Cardboard "holders" from the packaged Eggs
  • Foam Stickers, Googly Eyes, Pom Poms etc
  • Foil Wrapped Mini Eggs
  • Shredded Tissue Paper
  • Floral Cellophane Wrap
  • Pipe Cleaners & Ribbon for tying 

And that's all there was to it. Being limited in resources (both money and space!), we wanted to give the participants a couple of hours to do something fun and creative, whilst having the bonus points of giving them something to take away with them to give as gifts (something a lot of these people would not have been able to afford to do themselves). What do you think?
