Make these cute Recycled Plastic Easter Egg Toadstools in 15 minutes or less. Yep, you can have a couple of these done in no time. These are perfect for kids to make for the garden, flower pots, and fairy gardens. This is craft is part of the Craft Lightning Series that the wonderful hosts from Country Chic Cottage, 30 Minute Crafts, and Creative Green Living are hosting. Check out all of the other great 15 minute projects featured on these sites all week long. Let’s get started!
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- White Acrylic Paint
- Small Sponge Dabber
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
- Branches/Drift Wood
- Pruning Shears
Step 1: Take the sponge dabber and make polka dots on the plastic eggs. Let dry.
Step 2: Take sticks or drift wood and cut them to size. You can use pruning shears. Cut the sticks on the longer side because you will be putting these in the ground.
Step 3: Put hot glue on the top of the stick and adhere it to the top inside of the plastic egg.
Step 4: This is completely optional. If you would like these to last a little longer, spray a clear coat to seal the paint.
There you have it! Quick, fun and simple. We used these for my daughter’s fairy house that I made them. It adds extra cuteness around their fairy house which they both really love. Plus, this is such a great way to recycle those plastic eggs that just end up hanging around the house!
