Paper Egg Holders

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Colorful cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Various hole punches and decorative elements
  • Thick pens
  • Paper trimmer
  • Ruler
  • Hard-boiled eggs

Pro Tip

The paper colors you want depend on the eggs. Bright, colorful paper is best if you're using plain hard-boiled eggs. But if you're planning to display decorated Easter eggs , more subtle colors let those babies shine.


1. Cut

Cut a variety of cardstock strips, each about 1" wide.

2. Decorate

Once you have a handful of strips, give them a personal touch by punching holes, drawing simple patterns or using crafty scissors (like zigzag scrapbook scissors). You can also layer the papers together.

3. Glue

When finished, cut each strip to about 5" long. Wrap the paper around so the ends overlap, then glue them together.

Put the eggs on display in their cute paper holders!

Pro Tip

If you're using dyed eggs, make sure they're completely cool and dry before placing them inside the paper egg holder.

Have a very crafty Easter with more easy paper projects.

Get hoppin' and string up a colorful, festive garland before that Easter Bunny arrives! This project is easier than dyeing eggs (though that's another fun way to spend a crafternoon), and is a great way to get the whole fam in on the holiday action.
Handmade mini paper baskets may just be the cutest way to gift candies, decorative eggs and other Easter treats. It's all thanks to a simple technique: paper weaving. Move the strips through one another, secure it with glue, stuff it with colorful artificial grass and say hello to your festive DIY gift wrap.

You don't need an occasion to make a card, but Easter sure is a good excuse. Craft these three versions super-quick, then send them to friends and fam in honor of Bunny Day. Bonus points if you pair 'em with a handmade envelope!
