Plastic Easter Egg Tea Cups

Number of View: 92370

Mmmm~~~ What is my daughter drinking? No, she is not drinking Sake. ;P

She is pretending to drink a cup of coffee with the tea cups mommy made with plastic Easter eggs. =)

I used the rounder eggs to make mini Play-Doh cupcakes, and the pointy ones for the tea cups.

I used buttons to stabilize the bottom. I didn’t have the patience to wait for the craft glue to dry, so I ended up using hot glue.

For the tea cups handles, I used butterfly and heart punch outs, ribbons, and buttons. (Shown Stampin’ Up! Heart to Heart Extra-Large punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, and Butterfly Extra-Large punch)

Originally, I just wanted to add the handles and no decoration on the cups. But, I ended up liking the ones without the handles. If I had planned it better, I should’ve put the art works first before adding the buttons on the bottom. I got hooked on drawing on the cups using permanent markers, Stickles, Dimensional Pearls, stickers, and Rub-ons. My son even helped me with the drawing! Perfect project for kids crafting!

Put two plastic eggs together, and…

Made a bird bath.

So many possibilities! Save all the plastic Easter Eggs! =)

Two on the right are my favorites.

Oh my~! And what is this!!! =)

  • Sol - that is so genius! I know what to do for arts and crafts on Easter. tea time at Easter.

  • Sherita Dikens - Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  • Amy - I’ve made a bunch of these already. Thanks for sharing. The idea is PERFECT for spring, and a perfect touch to a fairy tea party.

  • Whitney at It's Gravy, Baby! - Oh my, such a fabulous idea. LOVE them. Thanks for sharing!

  • Amy - So Clever! I just adore how you up-cycled those annoying plastic eggs. I can’t wait to make some. Thanks for sharing!

  • Brady Mobus - I’d personally have to talk with a person in this article. That’s not necessarily something My spouse and i typically carry out! I like examining a new write-up that may find individuals to consider. Also, thanks intended for letting me to be able to review!

  • Erin @ Strawberry Mommycakes - SUCH a cute idea! I’ll definitely be doing this with the left over Easter eggs :)

  • Lancel - You made some decent points there. I looked on the web for more info about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.

  • Alexandra - Adorable. Will be trying tomorrow

  • Elizabeth - Your Easter egg tea cup idea is absolutely ingenious. I’d like to replicate your idea for my daughters birthday party favors. I’ve noticed however that plastic eggs now have holes for stringing/hanging. How did you go about sealing those so that the liquid didn’t seep out while not subjecting drinks to toxins??? Thanks!

  • sunghee chon - Thank you, Elizabeth!
    I think these craft glue (e.g., Modge Podge) are thick enough if you don’t put too much, it’ll be okay. And, I think they are non-toxic. Look at my kids dumping the glue like they are paint on this blog post, http://www.creativityinprogress.com/blog/mini-play-doh-cupcake-wrappers/. Heehee
    How old is your daughter? Can adults help out and use hot glue guns (low heat)?
    Have fun!!!

  • Allison Katelyn - This is such a cute idea – I love it! I don’t have kids but would be all over this for tea parties if I did – wish I had them when I was a girl! :)
