Plastic Easter Egg Craft

We have an abundance of these plastic eggs lying around from all of the Easter egg hunts we’ve enjoyed with the kids over the years. And although they are still participating in them, we “borrowed” a few for crafting purposes. Afterall, kids can’t have all the fun;).

There are many creative uses for those plastic eggs so before you toss them away, check out these fun plastic Easter egg crafts. We previously made this DIY Easter Wreath with chalky painted Easter eggs and I love how easy and cute this Dollar Store Easter egg wreath looks!
