Hey y’all, hey! I found these cute pastel eggs at Dollar Tree in the “Plus” section. I’ve been waiting and waiting for a “Plus” aisle in my Dollar Tree, and these are a great “first Plus project” with a little breath of spring during this COLD Washington state winter!
Check out the videos below or follow along here for all the details.
And the final project (I tried a few things!) is designed by y’all! So many great suggestions while I was live helped to make this craft so stinkin’ adorable!
Dollar Tree Plus: Stacking eggs (Dollar Tree Plus is a section of the store that offers items that are over $1.50), planters, moss
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White wax (or you can use white paint and just wipe it off a bit), Petticoat Pink

Stash: Pipe cleaners, burlap, ribbon
Let’s make it!
They are too shiny for what I want, so I’ll tone them down a bit. I’m just going to whitewash them. Y’all, they sold out fast! If you see them, grab some. One of our friends said most stores got only one box of 16.
They even snap together like this:
I used White Wax, but you can also paint these if you want. I’m thinking Debi’s Design Diary Petticoat Pink, Mint Chip and Prom Queen. Those colors are perfect matches!
Tip: Judie suggested Mod Podge and tissue paper. That would be cute also!
You can see in the first image that it is shiny before I applied the wax. The second picture shows how the wax helps to define the pattern.
I did the same process on the blue and green eggs.
The ones on the left are waxed, which toned them down just enough!
I was thinking I’d put them in a planter and have them on the porch on either side of the door. But y’all suggested making a bunny! I’m using the small and medium sized eggs, and now I’m loving the whole bunny concept.
Here’s the Dollar Tree cake tray I’ll be using, and the next picture shows the Dollar Tree planter that could also work if you wanted to do the eggs in the planter.
TIP: Use a strong glue (like E-6000) if you’re going to use them outdoors. Also, put something like rocks or sand in the planter to weigh it down.
I added two kinds of moss to the cake tray and just used hot glue to adhere the moss.
Next, I added pieces from an Easter garland wreath and glued on some Easter eggs.
Y’all suggested ears, so we have ears!
I used pipe cleaners (chenille stems) to shape the ears, then painted some pink on them.
I hot glued raffia and ribbon onto the bunny, then glued it to the cake tray.
Those ears, y’all! So stinkin’ cute! And the bunny is just adorable with the small and medium sized eggs for the head and body!
If you want to do the planter idea, just stack the three eggs, glue them onto a cake tray (or any surface you might have), add some moss and weigh down your planter. Quick and simple!
Meanwhile, check this out! I’m new to Diamond Art Painting, and these Highland cows are just adorable! I got them on Amazon (CLICK HERE) and there are four to the set.
