Easter Egg Holders

We had some fun with our Easter eggs last year and we made special holders for them too that were easy  enough for my 4 year old to be involved and fun enough to make a bunch so I wanted to share them with you!

I got this idea straight out of Martha Stewart Living. It was super easy and cheap. It cost me $2 to get a roll of 20 gauge wire from Hobby Lobby. I made 9 holders and have tons of wire left so you get a lot for just $2. A pen was too tiny for the loops so I wrapped the wire around a glue stick and a screwdriver too. I made about 6 loops around and then cut the end.

You then flatten the loops and make a circle the size you need and attach the ends by making another loop.

None of mine look exactly alike, they all came out unique, which is part of the fun! Love these. I always enjoy a basket full of colored eggs, but am loving this new stand-up way of showing off your eggs.

For the egg in the picture above, I just applied a rub-on letter.  That was the super simple method and not nearly as fun as coloring them, but still cute enough for display.

For the eggs in the picture below, we applied stickers to the eggs before dipping into the color. After the eggs dried, I removed the stickers and there you have fun designs all over! I had way too much fun with this making polka-dot, monogrammed, alphabet, and striped eggs.

Do you have a fun way of showing off your eggs?  I would love to hear about it!  Thanks for stopping by!  

I will be linking to these parties this week!

Happy Tuesday!

How cute is that egg holder! I have been wanting to make some initialed eggs for our house but I wasn't sure how to display them. Thanks for the idea, now I must go create!

OMG - I love this idea. I have tons of crafting wire (and stick glue too!) We usually use those little punch out cardboardy things that come with the egg dye kits, which totally suck. This is SO much better!!

I LOVE these little eggs!! We haven't dyed eggs with Jayce before (no real hard boiled egg eaters around here), but I think that's going to have to change this year. Love the sticker eggs and the display stands!

I love the egg stands, I will definitely have to do this with my kids. I love the way you did your eggs as well!
