I love Easter. I love the vibrant colors, the family time, and that it means more to me now than just hunting eggs. This year, when thinking of fun crafts to make for Easter gifts, I knew I wanted something colorful, fun, and inspirational. I decided to make an Easter Egg Bouquet filled with inspiration…and gotta have some candy in there too of course.
I love that this Easter craft is cheery, sugary, budget-friendly, and inspirational. It takes no time to put together and is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face.
To get started, you need to purchase your choice of Easter goodies (I purchased mine at Walmart);
- 6-12 Plastic Easter Eggs ($1.97)
- 2-5 bags of candy (I used Jelly Beans at $2.28 per bag-4 of them)
- Easter grass ($.33)
- Ribbon ($2.97–or use what you have at home)
- Wooden Skewers ($.97)
- Clear Jar or Vase (mine was $2.97 and is of decent size)
- Green Marker
- Take 6-12 wooden skewers and ‘paint’ them green. You can use paint if you want but I used a green marker. It was so easy and fast to do this. Set aside to dry completely.
- Fill jar with some Easter grass; pour candy over grass in jar.
- Almost all plastic Easter eggs have small little holes in the bottom of egg. Simply stick skewer in hole. Repeat for all plastic eggs.
- Assemble using a floral technique.
- Tie a ribbon with bow around jar. You can be done at this step if you wanted or….
- Write or type out little messages on pieces of paper. I typed, printed, and cut them out. These can be words of encouragement, things you love about the person you’re giving it to, or inspirational Bible scriptures (like I did). Insert them into each egg.
When giving as a gift, you can include a handwritten note saying something like – “An egg a day shows what Jesus would say. Happy Easter!” depending on what type of messages you chose.
I spent under $20 for this but you can spend much less by using a jar or vase you have at home, making that jar or vase smaller than the one I chose, and ribbon you have at home. The candy was the most costly item but it’s because I bought a big vase to use. I wanted a full but not cluttered bouquet so I went with a larger one. You can make this in under $10 easily.
I hope you like it as much as I do. It’s so much fun to me and I’m thrilled to be able to include the Bible scriptures and hopefully brighten someone’s day. Happy Easter!
