Ready for a little Easter inspired home decor project?
Today, I’m pleased to share this fun Easter craft tutorial and hopefully it’ll inspire you, especially if you’re wanting to create some pretty Easter decorations for your home.
Find out how to make these fun fairy lights with an Easter egg theme in my tutorial below. This is a quick craft project that’ll take an hour at most! When you’ve made these Easter inspired fairy lights, drape them across your mantelpiece, or hang them like bunting across a wall – anywhere you like really!
My daughter is rather taken with the Easter lights I made and last night I found them draped over her doll’s house – she was using them as a night light!
You’ll only need a few materials for this Easter craft project:
- Plastic Easter eggs (the kind that you fill with treats!) – see them here.
- Battery operated LED fairy lights
- Hot glue gun (I have this cute pink one).
- Drill or an old pair of scissors
Step 1: Make holes in the bottom of the plastic Easter eggs
Carefully make a hole at the bottom of one of the plastic Easter eggs using a drill or a pair of scissors like I did in the photo above. I twisted the blade of the scissors around to make a perfect circle, just the right size for threading one of the lights through. Make holes in the bottom of all of the plastic eggs.
You might find it easier to split the plastic eggs in half to do this, as they should come in two pieces.
PLEASE TAKE CARE if you’re using scissors, just in case they slip whilst you’re making the holes!
Step 2: Insert the fairy lights into the plastic Easter eggs
The holes you’ll have made should hopefully allow the LED lights to push through, yet fit snugly when they do. Dab a little glue from your glue gun around the fitting inside the plastic eggs to keep the lights in place.
Once you’ve done this for all the plastic Easter eggs, your lights will be finished! Hang them wherever you like in celebration of Easter!
Brighten up your home with Easter decorations!
