A simple Easter craft is to upcycle the plastic, colored Easter eggs you probably already have. My kids are teenagers now but I still have a plastic bag full of brightly colored, plastic Easter eggs from when they were younger. I will probably never use them again since they’ve outgrown Easter egg hunts. I’ve tried several times to give them away on Freecycle but they’re still sitting with my Easter decorations for another year.

Simple Easter Craft
Instead of throwing them away, this year I decided I would try a simple Easter craft and upcycle the plastic Easter eggs into something a little more decorative.
- Tear the pieces of colored tissue paper into small jagged strips. Try to avoid straight edges or sharp corners.
- Coat the plastic colored Easter egg with a layer of Modge Podge. Yes, this is messy.
- Paint a layer of Modge Podge on top of the torn pieces of colored tissue paper. Lay them on in a random pattern and make sure you cover the entire plastic, colored Easter egg.
- Allow it to dry completely and display.
If you want to let the base color of the plastic Easter egg come through, use only white tissue paper to decoupage with. This will mute the bright neon color of the egg and allow it to be all one color. If you want a stained glass look, use a variety of different colors to decoupage your plastic Easter eggs.
