DIY Potted Easter Egg Cactus

Potted Easter Egg Cactus I love HI-CHEW candy from Japan and I’m thrilled to partner with them to share our fun new DIY Potted Easter Egg Cactus celebrating their Spring Mix Bag. This strawberry, mango, and green apple assortment of sensationally chewy gluten-free and nut-free candy is made with real fruit juices and purees. It’s the perfect candy for stuffing Easter eggs or as a sweet surprise  for anyone who enjoys chewy fruity treats… like me!Potted Easter Egg Cactus

Here’s how we made these adorable DIY Potted Cactus Easter Eggs, filled with HI-CHEW of course.

Potted Easter Egg Cactus

Step 1 – Stuff an assortment of plastic eggs in shades of aqua and green with HI-CHEW candy. I love that they won’t melt out in the sun like chocolate.

Step 2 – Glue pieces of craft moss or grass around the edge of tiny terra cotta pots with a glue gun. You could also fill the pots with shredded paper or basket grass.

Step 3 – Wrap rubber bands around eggs to create a guide for painting. We used kelly green all-surface craft paint to paint a stripe along each of the 6 guides and then painted a freehand stripe down the center of each segment.

Step 4- Use the head of a straight pin to add dots of white down the rows between the stripes. You can see that perfection is not necessary for this project.

Step 5 – Once dry, place the egg in the pot, pointy side down, and hot glue a small silk or paper flower to the top.

HI-CHEW Spring Mix bags are available for purchase at Walgreens, K-Mart, and Meijer.Potted Easter Egg Cactus

I picked up a few bags of HI-CHEW at Walgreens. Next stop will be the Asian Mini Mart for the tropical flavors. YUM!
