Sharing is caring!

As most of you already know, I love to repurpose and make many of my crafts reusable like these decorated plastic eggs. I realize that plastic Easter eggs are already reusable but why not have more of a reason to want to keep them by making them pretty. The fun thing about these decorated plastic eggs is once they are filled with candy or a toy, they can accent a place settings at Easter dinner or be used in Easter baskets. They can also be given to friends, co-workers, or teachers as a sweet Easter gift. This is such an easy craft to make and is a lot of fun to do with the kids. I like to find small pieces of ribbon, fabric, beads, buttons, and anything else I have on-hand to decorated plastic eggs to create these little treasures.
