You only need a few supplies, so before we get started I wanted to let you know that if you click on a link and make a purchase, I may make a few cents. Thank you in advance.

We found everything we needed at our local Hobby Lobby store. Egg cups can be found in plain white for around $2.99. With the 40% off internet coupon, you can snag one for even less. Scrapbook paper can also be bought on a dime, ranging from .29-.79 cents a sheet.


1. Begin by cutting your scrapbook paper into tiny pieces. Pieces should be about an inch or less in size. This will make them the perfect size for layering onto your egg cup.

2. Dip your finger in some Elmer’s school glue and spread it all over one side of the egg cup. You only want to do one side at a time so it doesn’t dry out on you.

3. Press the tiny pieces to the egg cup, flattening them out as you go. Continue to layer on pieces until that side of the cup is covered. Repeat these steps on the opposite side.

4. Once your egg cup is covered, apply a thin layer of glue on top of the pieces. Don’t worry, it will dry clear!

Allow plenty of time for your egg cup to dry now. Once it is, you are ready to use it. Display your decorative eggs in it or use it to hold hard boiled eggs at your next brunch. Either way you use it, it is a great way to add some simple spring charm to your home!
