Plastic Easter Egg Cupcake Decorations craft idea

Plastic eggs are all over the stores now. It’s too early to start stuffing them with candy and treats, how about turning them into cute cupcake decorations?

The best part is that you can make these in minutes!

I started with:

  • large colored plastic eggs
  • treat cups
  • Elmer’s Painters pens
  • Small colored pom poms
  • Glue dots

To make them glow, I also used battery-operated tea light candles.

It is a super simple two step process/

First, separate your plastic eggs and decorate the larger half or your egg using Spring colored Painters pens to create sprinkles on your “cupcakes”.

    Where do you get the Treat Cups?

      I got mine on Pick Your Plum, but I know I have seen them in the baking section of craft stores like Michaels, or like the party section of a Target, or a party store should carry them.

    Instead of painters pens you can also use sharpies

    Last year when you posted this I fell in love with the idea. So I went out and out and bought eggs and treat cups. I have been to every store in my town and have even taken the egg with me none of the cups I have bought fit the egg. They are either too small or way too big. I need more information. How tall are your cups? What is dimension of the width of the cups? Same with the eggs. Please help me I want to make these as a birthday gift. Can you email me the measurements or even better do you have one egg and one cup I could buy from you?
