Last minute Easter, easy and cheep...

Need a lot of table decorations? Need a lot of little gifts?  Most of these items come from the Dollar Tree. You don't need a lot of supplies.  A bit of glue, wire cutters and any other embellishments  you want i.e. glitter, ribbon etc.  You can make these as fancy or as plain as you want.
 
 The eggs are small, have a hinged top and are 24 in a package.  Your choice of Easter grass.  I had the chenille chicks left over, if you can't find any you can substitute the small styrofoam bunnies at the Dollar Tree OR place an Easter message inside OR a tiny birds nest OR ... well whatever idea you come up with.
Depending on how many you are making you will need bunches of flowers accordingly. Some of the Dollar Tree bunches work better than others.  You want lots of petals and a flat center.
 Put a small hole in the bottom of the egg...I put mine in the most rounded part of the egg. There may be holes there already but you want yours to be in the center.  I use an ice pick. If you are doing this with children , pre-do the holes.
 Remove the center of the flower, slide the egg onto the stem and re-insert the center. Add a bit of glue, Easter grass, a bit more glue and the chick. Push the leaf and flower up to the bottom of the egg.  There you go !     Add them to a vase of flowers, use them by themselves, these are a sweet gift for children to make and give.
Visit  Ivy and Elephants   for a beautiful Easter message and Beverly's Pink Saturday for beautiful pinks.
Thank you for your visit and sweet comments.  I appreciate them !   Wishing you all a very blessed Easter.

You had me at the hinged eggs...
I love that. You can do more creative things with the center of them if they are hinged. I'm going into town today and going to see if they have any in my DT store.

This is so precious Francie! I would have never thought of it! Easter is my favorite season although it is very emotional for me. Lost both my dad and our unborn daughter Rachel on Good Friday two years apart! But I love the celebration of Christ and rising after suffering a terrible . Thank you for sharing this beautiful idea! Happy Easter! Hugs, Anne
