Easy Easter Egg Cups

I’ve seen some great little pics online of different ways to use egg cups when decorating for Easter. They’re something that most households probably have on hand already and with a few little additions, make a cute addition to an Easter display or centrepiece.

So, once I got the idea into my head I started thinking what I could use – flowers, candles, decorated eggs…..

How about adding some decorated eggs. They have great varieties in craft and discount stores these days, or you could make your own.

Then I remembered I had a big box of beautiful ribbon flowers my Mum made some years ago. They’re too pretty to be stuck in a box – they need to be displayed so that others can enjoy them too.

When searching through the kitchen cupboard,  I found a vintage egg cup tucked away. My Mum had kept it for me since I was very young (quite some years ago). Isn’t it great how Mum’s do that for us? Honestly, the hole for the egg was so tiny that I don’t know how a chicken would have laid an egg that small. However, there’s certainly room for a flower.

I’ve published a more detailed post on Decor Notes and have also provided some ideas on how to use your egg cups in a simple Easter display.  If you’ve got some egg cups lurking in the cupboard needing a new life as decorations, I’d love to see your ideas. Please let me know.
