Paper Punched Easter Eggs

Some of the best projects are also the most simple, and it doesn’t get much more “back to basics” than these paper punched Easter eggs.

Simple and classic, they take just a few minutes to make and will last for many springs to come!

    Wow! saw this on One Pretty Thing. People laugh at me for being a junk collector but it pays off….someone gave me a box of 500 of those 3/4″ long pins which I never use but have also never gotten rid of.

    And now I have a perfect use for them. These are so pretty and clever!

  11. Debi says:

    I just tried this project (I was so excited to do it) but the pins kept falling out. Would gluing each one help with this problem?

    • Debi!
      I am so sad! I am so sorry you are having trouble with my Easter egg project!
      Yes, you can absolutely use glue to help, but just be careful! If you’re going to use hot glue, it doesn’t mix well with styrofoam. Just be extra careful…or choose a different type of glue!
      I hope this works, and I’m sorry again!

    you dont give size of styrofoam eggs, but the punch is 5/8. so I am going to smaller ones with smaller punch? for my easter tree. then try a few bigger ones for bowl or maybe a large one with cut out with scene inside for a centerpiece wow possibilities are endless!

    love this project, but I looked all over and cant find 5/8 hole punch. what am I missing?

    • Nikki says:

      I just found mine at my local craft store, but the size isn’t set in stone. If you can find a 1/2″ that should be fine.
      I wouldn’t go any smaller, at least not with this size egg…you’ll need a lot more circles!
      And same thing the other way, I wouldn’t go much bigger, or your eggs will look more like pine cones.
      If you REALLY can’t find even a 1/2″, think about adjusting the size of the egg to go with the size punch you can find!
