Every year I try to find new and interesting ways to display Easter eggs. My favorite will always be the old Paskris tree, but there is something to be said for a humble hard-boiled egg that deserves a place of honor. Not that I don’t love a colorful jumble of eggs in a basket, but you know, sometimes you have an egg who deserves a shot at a solo career, up on the mantel with the other treasures.
Paper grass and Easter eggs are old friends, so this just seemed like a natural combo! Best part? They are crazy easy to make.
All you need is an 8.5″ by 3.6″ piece of paper (that’s one third of a standard letter size sheet) with fringes cut 2/3 of the way down. Now fold back the fringes, circle it around a couple of times and dab with glue. Presto! Grass eggs at your service. You can make one to display a single egg, or make a whole bunch and then it will look like you are trying to grow a garden of Easter eggs (don’t act like you aren’t).
As always, this post is brought to you by Paas, America’s favorite Easter tradition. Go see some of the amazing eggs they are cooking up on Facebook (like these fancy eggs I made with their Flashy Foil kit). Yeah, cool huh?!
