Easter Decorations_Egg CupsThese sweet egg cup holders will make an adorable addition to your easter table or spring gathering. Nestle ready-to-eat hard cooked eggs inside or proudly display the dyed and decorated variety. Another great tip – use them as place card holders! Just make the grassy coil tighter, write guests’ names onto business cards, and tuck them into the tall grasses.

Materials Needed:
How to PDF
8 1/2″ x 11″ Text Paper (Moss, Sage & Curry)
Medium Adhesive Pearls
7 Point Shape Hole Punch
Double Stick Tape
Bone Folder

1. Cut strips of moss and sage text paper to approximately 2″ x 11″. Use the grass template on the How to PDF to cut out blades of grass or cut freehand.
2. Take one strip of moss grass and sage grass and loosely coil to allow room for an egg to fit snugly inside. Secure outer and inner strips of grass with double stick tape. Curl ends of grass outwards with a bone folder.
3. Decorate the base of the grassy egg cup holder with a curry flower, using the 7 point shape hole punch. Use double stick tape to adhere to egg cup. Embellish the center with a pearl.

    Write the person’s name on the egg with crayon before you dye it and then you have place card and egg in one! Very sweet

    This will be great for my Grand kiddlets. I like the idea of writing the name on the egg with crayon. We used to do that when I was a kid. Thanks katzpajamas. This is such a cute idea.

    You could also use a wrapped Cadburry chocolate egg (or a pile of jelly beans!) to place inside the grass cup- glue/tape a little ‘sign’ with each person’s name on a piece of paper onto a toothpick as a placecard sticking up… Or you could have the little sign say “Happy Easter” or “Happy Spring”… so many ideas with this cute design! Thanks!

    It would be quick to make the grass using the fringe scissors from Martha Stewart!
