Sequined & Flowered Eggs in Painted Egg Cups

Inexpensive plastic eggs and wooden egg cups get prettied up for Easter! DIY Sequined & Flowered Egg in Painted Egg Cups at littlemisscelebration.com. It’s kind of hard to believe that in about a month, it will be Easter. There are all kinds of eggs to decorate; hard-boiled, of course, foam, paper mache, plastic. Simple and inexpensive plastic eggs and wooden egg cups get a pretty transformation today into sequined & flowered eggs in painted egg cups. These can be a great Easter decoration, a little gift or even serve as place cards or favors at Easter dinner!

We used to have a big, fun Easter egg hunt every year at mother-in-laws house on Easter Sunday. All of the kids had a different colored set of plastic eggs to hunt for and us big “kids” had a blast hiding the eggs all over the place. Inevitably, there was always that one egg that someone hid so well, it wasn’t found until the following year! Last year, I shared how special these plastic eggs are to me and made some special Mod Podged versions. This year, it’s bling and flowers!

I found these round cup, 10 mm sequins at Hobby Lobby. They come in all kinds of colors – I went with bubblegum pink and light blue. For the flowered egg, I used Prima yellow paper flowers.

A tall, narrow shot glass someone brought us back from vacation actually made the perfect holder to work on the eggs. I used Gem-Tac to glue the sequins and flowers to the eggs, staring at the top and layering rows. Glue sequins or flowers right over the part where the two halves of the eggs snap together. I let one half dry, flipped the egg over and finished the other side.

Ok, you might be thinking no WAY you’re going to glue individual sequins! :) The process actually went pretty quickly! I used my trusty Tweezer Bee craft tweezers to pick up, hold and place the sequins & flowers, and a tooth pick to apply a thin layer of glue. I put a sheer, white bow on the top of the sequined eggs and finished the flowered egg with larger, layered flowers.

I had these unfinished wooden egg cups in my stash of wood products. You can find wooden eggs cups online or make your own by gluing wooden parts together.

I gave each egg cups two coats of bright, white acrylic paint. Polka dots just say spring to me! Using the end of a paint brush, I gave each cup a sprinkle of polka dots to match each egg. Put some polka dots inside the egg cups! Each cup was finished off with sheer, polka dotted ribbon in a matching color.

Aren’t these fun? I want to get sequins in more colors and have a whole rainbow of sparkly eggs AND I have lots of flowers in different colors, so more flowered eggs will be made! Hopefully, I’ve made the Easter bunny proud!

It only happens once in a while, but this year my birthday falls on Easter Sunday. Ha, everyone should be making me gifts! :) We haven’t quite decided on our plans for Easter yet, but I’ll have a special little egg for everyone.

  1. Oh, these are so pretty, Cindy! And easy enough that I think even I could pull these off. :)

    • Thanks, Carrie! Of course, you could make these!!! I love how they look for so little $$ and they’ll make cute little Easter gifts. Thanks so much for visiting!

  2. These are so sweet, Cindy! I love that they will last so something I can add to my Easter decor stash, too! Pinned! xo

    • Thanks, Claire – never hurts to have a little Easter sparkle! Gluing sequins turned out to be a great stress reliever – who knew? ;) Thanks for the visit and pin! xo

  3. Hi Cindy – Polka dots and bling… will you be mine?!?!?! These are ADORABLE! Hugs, Holly

    • Holly, I should totally send the pink egg and egg cup to you, my friend! So happy that you like them and we always need a little sparkle! Thank you for visiting and hope you had a good Monday! Hugs! xo

    By golly if your eggs in egg cups aren’t the prettiest and most wonderful ones I’ve seen. You are always so clever, I love seeing what you’ve made when I open your posts. Always happy surprises. I can’t decide which one I love the most, the sequins or the flowers, both are adorable and so cheerful for Spring, love the polka dots.
    I should be working on some Easter projects I’ve started, mostly Easter Banners but since I was offline for almost 2 full months with a sick pc I can’t seem to keep myself away from this time eating machine.
    Speaking of working on projects, I’ll take a break now to work on couple of them in different stages. Happy Spring days Cindy.

    • Hi Jane Ellen! So happy to hear from you and I’m so glad you are well – I was worried when I hadn’t heard from you for a while. Oh, there’s nothing worse than a sick computer; I’m just glad that YOU are ok!! The calendar says spring but we’re supposed to get some snow here tomorrow – can you believe that? I’m sure it will be a quick storm and warmer days are ahead. I’m so happy you like the eggs and I’m sure you will get all of your Easter projects ready. Thanks so much for visiting and making my Monday happy! :)

  5. Cindy, we always had eggs like that and wouldn’t be able to find them until the next snow melt. The boys like it when we used to hide them with money. One year, (a super long time ago, before the economy took a fall) my husband put a hundred dollar bill in one egg. It was the one that was lost. He never did it again. Men.
    I absolutely LOVE how you decorated these eggs with sequines! So you… and so me! I’m totally going to do this, this year! Have a happy Monday night!

    • Gloria, I absolutely cannot stop laughing over the lost egg with the $100 dollar bill! That is one of the best ones I have heard in a while!!! I can’t wait to tell MY husband that story! I knew you would like the sequins, just like me! Thank you so much for visiting and sharing that great story – I know every time I look at a plastic egg, I’m going to think of this! :)

      • Yes, it’s one of things where my husband learned a lesson… either keep track of the hidden eggs… or don’t fill them up with big bills! Can’t wait to have a craft day and do these eggs. :)

  6. Cindy, Who doesn’t love sequins? These pastel eggs in those adorable polka dotted egg cups are so cute. I love how you finished them off with a polka dotted ribbon. I’ll be pinning to my Easter board. I bet you will get lots of chocolate bunnies this Easter birthday!

  7. Your eggs are adorable, Cindy! And let’s not forget the egg cups. Polka dots always make me smile. I haven’t even started on any Easter projects. Thanks for the sparkly push to get eggstra creative.

    Thanks for sharing at Project Inspire{d}! I always look forward to your cheerful projects.
    Wishing you a week filled with extraordinary creativity!
