These DIY Easter candy holders are perfect for table decorations or just storing things. The best thing is that they’re easy to make and great for the kids. The one bit that may take a while is for the glue to dry when sticking the chickens on. If you don’t have much time, you could use tape for this, but it won’t hold as strongly.
What You Need:
- Yogurt pot
- Green paper (preferably tissue paper)
- Various sizes of yellow pom-poms
Step One: Wrap the yogurt pot
You don’t want people seeing that you’re using a yogurt pot, so wrap it in the green paper. Tissue paper is easier to work with, but normal A4 paper is often easier to find. Cut the paper to a size so it wraps around the yogurt pot, and glue it on
Step two: Place paper “grass” inside the yogurt pot.
This is your grass – and again, tissue paper is easier to use. Place the paper in the pot so that some of it can hang over the edge.
Step three: Cut your grass
Create grass from the bits that hang over the edge. This is easy to do by cutting zig-zags into the paper. Be careful, as this is fiddly. Don’t let children do this in case they cut their fingers.
Step four: Add the chickens
On the sides of the pot, add some yellow pom-poms (your chickens! just like on the DIY Easter baskets). You can add as many or as few as you want. Use a variety of sizes so you have a family of chickens. And there you have it! One DIY Easter holder; see how simple it is?
