Paint strip egg holders and DIY paper flower vase for Easy Easter and spring crafts

I wanted to share the projects and templates with you that I demonstrated on our local news. It was the same station I did the segment for in December, and if you are in the area, it was WGN channel 9 midday fix. I’ll post a link for you later!I love these two Easter and spring crafts because they are really simple, but have a great look, and are fun for everyone.

The first one is paint strip egg holders.

With the amount of painting I do, I always have a bunch of these left over. I had quite a few left over from when we did the girls room and they were the perfect spring colors. I thought it would be fun to re-purpose them. If you don’t have paint strips on hand, you could also use stiffer scrapbook paper or card stock.

On the back of the paint strip, I drew my image. You can draw one of your own, or feel free to use one of the templates provided at the end of the post to use.

I then cut along my lines.

You can also use a fancy scrapbook edge punch if you don’t want an animal silhouette.

I made my strips about 6 inches long . Use clear tape to put the two ends together in a loop and viola!

How fun are those?

I also decided to demonstrate an easy and inexpensive way to gift spring flowers with a paper bag flower vase.

I thought it would be kind of fun to do  a play on a vase, on  paper bag. The flowers are sitting inside a mason jar with a little bit of water for structure.

This is the design if you want to use it on a template and copy it. I think this would be a great house warming or even fun centerpieces on the cheap. You could also change the colors or make it a fun coloring project for the kids.

Here are the templates for the egg holders. THey are so easy for Easter and spring crafts!
