Hey all! These super cute hidden egg suckers make great decorations or gifts. I got everything you see here at Dollar Tree. 18 eggs, suckers, ribbon, grass, bowl= $5.00. Easy + inexpensive= cute!!!
What you will need:
- Plastic Easter eggs
- Thick ribbon with wire edges
- Dremel or other hole making option (screw driver, hand-held drill)
- Easter grass (optional)
Let’s start with making the holes first.
*Be sure you are drilling in a safe place with the appropriate matting and are
wearing eye protection*
Drill a hole in the bottom of the plastic egg using a slow speed. Faster speeds could cause plastic to melt.
After drilling the hole, check to see if the sucker stick will fit. If not use your drill to widen the hole a little by tilting the drill from side to side while on a low-speed.
Depending on the type of sucker you use, you may need to cut the plastic cover on the suckers so the suckers will sit lower in the egg. To do this simply unwrap the plastic a smidgen and cut access off.
Time to grab that ribbon. Cut a good amount off the roll. I cut each of mine to about 10′ long.
Fold the ribbon in half and pinch together in the center with your fingers. Put the center of the ribbon under the egg on the stick. Wrap both ends of the ribbon completely around the stick twice. Tie a knot and pull tight.
This is where the wire comes in handy. Pull the ends open to create the bow. You may need to use scissors to clean up the edges or to shorten them — that part is completely up to you.
And that’s it! Once your eggs are created you can either give them as a gift or create a fun center piece using a bowl and Easter grass.
