- Step 2: Color and Decorate
If you printed the black & white Easter Egg Holder pattern, use crayons, colored pencils
or markers to color in the Easter designs. If you choose the Create
Your Own or Dots patterns, draw designs of your own creation, or stamp the egg
holders with rubberstamp images. Let your creativity flow. Try to
make egg holder designs that enhance the Easter eggs that you plan
Tip: Use pastel Easter colors. Color in the background also if you like. Do
not color the bottom half of each pattern—it will be folded to
- Step 3: Cut
The Easter Egg Holder pattern has three
egg holders and ten stickers. Cut out each egg
holder and sticker around its outside edge.
- Step 4: Make Holders
Fold each egg holder pattern lengthwise along the long center line
with the design on the outside. Use your thumbnail
to make a sharp, flat crease.
Open up the fold and apply glue all over one side of the holder.
Press the sides together and smooth with your hand.
Form a ring and overlap the ends about ½" (1 cm) or more.
Tape the ends together at the top and bottom edges with small pieces
of tape. For the best fit, check the holder on an egg before taping
Tip: The Easter stickers may be used to cover
the tape on the back of the egg holder.
- Step 5: Display Your Eggs
- Make as many holders as you need for your Easter eggs.
- Place the fat end of a decorated Easter egg into an egg
holder. A slightly tight fit will make the egg and holder
- Use your eggs and holders for a table decoration with Easter
basket grass spread around and between them.
That's it! You're done!
