Do you ever find something at the store that you’re so excited about, you feel like you need to call everyone you know and tell them to RUN to get it? That’s how I felt about these adorable mini Easter Eggs from Dollar Tree! With 24 eggs and two different sets of colors (bright or pastel) they’re a steal. I might have a few projects in the coming weeks using these little cuties!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the necklaces. They remind me of candy leis people make for graduation!
- mini plastic easter eggs (Dollar Tree)
- any small easter candy
- needle and thread or thin string
Start by letting the kids put a few pieces of candy in each egg. Older kids could help with the needle and thread, but mine stuck to the filling eggs job. Thread your needle and make a double-length of thread as long as you need for a necklace. I used a small fold of washi tape at the end so the eggs wouldn’t slip off.
