Make these cute Easter Treat Cups out of pastel paper cups and supplies you probably already have on-hand.
Even though Easter’s not for another month I wanted to try an idea I had (ahead of time) to make sure it would work.
My idea was to make Easter treat cups but secure them at the top with ribbon. To do this, I cut rounded slits down opposite sides of each cup (see pic below). This worked out great and the rounded shape gave me the idea to add an Easter Egg version to the mix.
This would be a great craft to do with kids or make them yourself for your grandchildren, nieces or nephews.
Here’s a list of the supplies I used but feel free to use whatever you have in your craft bin:
– Pastel paper cups: white, yellow, pink, blue, green or purple
– Craft glue and clear tape
– Googly eyes
– A black sharpie marker
– A hole punch
– Pastel colored ribbon
– White pipe cleaners for bunny ears
– White pom-poms (small) for bunny cheeks, pink pom-poms (slightly smaller) for bunny nose
– Orange colored paper (for the chick’s beak)
– Any other decorations you choose
How to Make Easter Treat Cups:
To get started, make two slits (opposite each other) 3/4 of the way down the sides of of each cup. Then round each cut like this:
Use a hole punch and make a hole in the front and back of the cup, then decorate to look like a bunny, chicky or Easter egg.
Finish by gluing ribbon around the base as a final decoration (again you could use washi tape or anything you choose).
With the Easter egg design, only glue pieces of ribbon to the front of the cup as decoration. You can still glue a ribbon around the entire base if you choose but if you glue ribbon all the way around the middle to top area, you won’t be able to open it to fill with candy.
Fill with treats and tie the top with a ribbon. That’s it!
