easy easter craft idea with egg boxes

I’ve been collecting egg boxes for a while now, with the intention of making paper mache piggy banks for our nieces. I never got that far, but luckily I had the boxes all piled up & ready to make something for Easter.

Here’s an easy project using egg boxes & white chocolate eggs.

Half-A-Dozen Easter Egg Gift Boxes 


Easter Crafts - Required (1)

Optional: pens, ribbons & flowers. Not included on the picture: ear buds. You’ll need these if you’re using normal food colouring & not the food colouring pens.


Remove stickers or labels from the boxes. Paint the empty egg boxes with a colour of your choice. I used white.

Now give the white chocolate easter eggs a bit of personality with the food colouring. It’s a good idea to wear plastic gloves when handling the eggs.

Once the boxes are dry, place some raffia in each egg hole to make the eggs fit more snuggly & pop the chocolate eggs in each box. Personalise with a message if you like.

Add your wrapper of choice & decorate with ribbon, flowers, washi tape or a card.

Easter Crafts - The End

There you have it: a lovely little gesture to drop off for a neighbour, family or friend this weekend.

May you & your loved ones have a wonderfully blessed Easter!
