Easter is right around the corner. Easter is one of my favorite crafting holidays. The little bunnies and chicks make for adorable crafting, and the religious crafts fill my home with meaning. No matter what type of crafts you enjoy, there is an Easter craft out there for everyone.
This Animal Easter Eggs craft uses several items that I already had in my home, and you may, too. Pull out the Cricut machine, a few plastic eggs, and scrap card stock, and get started.
This is an excellent craft project to utilize card stock scraps. You know that bag of card stock scraps that you’ve been saving for a project someday? This is the perfect project for that!
Supplies for the Animal Easter Eggs Craft:
- Cricut machine – I’m using the Cricut Maker but a Cricut Explore (or even the Cricut Joy) would work.
- Cutting mat– Since we are using card stock, a Blue LightGrip Cutting Mat is the norm for this project. However, you may notice that I’m using a Green StandardGrip Cutting Mat. This particular cutting mat is well-used and the adhesive has diminished to the point of a LightGrip Cutting Mat. I save my StandardGrip Cutting Mats for these purposes.
- Card stock – I used a variety of colors for this project, but it was all colors that I had on hand.
- Cricut Pen
- Cricut Single Scoring Wheel (for the Maker) or the Cricut Stylus (for the Explore Air machine)
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Plastic Easter eggs
How to Make this Craft:
Open up Cricut Design Space. Here is the direct link to the cut file, or you may search “Animal Easter Eggs” or “Animal Egg Decor.”
Send the cut file to the Cricut machine.
Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space. There will be many card stock color changes and tool changes. Carefully follow these to make the process run smoothly.
One great thing about the Cricut Maker- if you have the incorrect tool in place, Cricut Design Space will alert you before cutting!
Here’s a quick YouTube video showcasing this project. As you can see, there are lots of card stock changes!
Once all the pieces have been cut, organize them into the pieces for each animal.
Use hot glue to secure the pieces on each egg. I used the photos from Cricut Design Space canvas to make sure that I was matching up the pieces correctly.
Use the eggs as super cute decor!
