DIY easy Cracking Easter Egg Pots
Chompsing my way through a chocolate dessert pot the other night, I noticed the pleasing oval shape of the container. Ruby's never one to let me throw anything away if it can be used for junk modelling or crafting, so I stocked up and bought a few more. And you thought I was selfless drinking wine so she could have corks to play with?!
We painted our pots (remove all labels first) with poster paints mixed with white acrylic to get lovely pastel colours. They needed a few coats.
When dry, fill with mini eggs. Run a glue stick around the rim and carefully lay a single sheet of tissue paper over the top trying to get it as taut as you can. Leave for a few minutes for the glue to dry, then carefully tear the tissue paper away leaving a sealed 'lid' attached.
Now you have pretty pots of Easter eggs to give away. Simply 'crack' them open to get to the contents.
A simple but effective way to jazz up some inexpensive chocolate eggs. We'll be giving these away to school friends at the end of term.
