Plastic Egg Tea Cups

Hope you had a nice Easter!

Now that it's over ~ Ever wonder what to do with all those plastic eggs?
With just a few items you can turn them into fabulous tea cups!

What you'll need:
Plastic Eggs
Glue Gun
Paint & Brush
Buttons
Embellishments (glitter pens, rhinestones, etc.)

First let your little one(s) decorate those eggs!
Pens, paint, glitter, stickers... whatever their little creative mind can come up!

Then glue a button to the bottom of each egg.

That's it! You're done!
The perfect addition to every play kitchen!

We glued some pearls together to create a handle.
This tea cup is my favorite!

Now get those plastic eggs & start creating :)

  20. Hi, I am Aimee from over at HomeSpun-Threads (http://www.homespun-threads.com) and I am getting together some creative/crafty bloggers (that I have loved from afar) for the month of May. The plan is that every day in May a different guest share something totally creative for kids to do during the summer. Summer time is approaching quickly and many of us parents are biting our nails trying to figure out what fun things we can do with our kids this summer. I thought the Tea Cup Tutorial was adorable! I’d absolutely love it if you would be interested in joining me, even if you want to share a post you have done previously. Please let me know as soon as possible, I only have spots at the end of the month open. Thanks so much for your consideration. If you'd like to participate my e-mail is.
    alarsen (at) homespun-threads (dot) com

    Graciously,
    Aimee
