Here’s how we made these adorable DIY Potted Cactus Easter Eggs, filled with HI-CHEW of course.
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.Does this make a cute teacher or hostess gift? I want a whole cactus garden as a centerpiece but first I need to go buy more candy because we have eaten every last piece. HI-CHEW Spring Mix bags are available for purchase at Walgreens, K-Mart, and Meijer.
