These DIY Jumbo Polka Dot Easter Egg Favors are just for adults. Because who doesn’t love an inspirational quote and touch of gold?
Ohhh, how I love surprise favors! I’m kind of like a child deep down.
It’s not just because I’d rather have sugar before dinner, but because you’d actually find me hunting Easter eggs with the three year olds instead of hiding them with the adults.
The point I’m trying to make here is that you can high five the inner child of all of your guests on Easter Sunday (as seen in action here) by passing out these DIY Jumbo Polka Dot Easter Egg Favors.
Fill them up with goodies even adults will be giddy over.
Materials Needed To Make DIY Easter Eggs
- Jumbo plastic Easter eggs — I purchased 6″ assorted Easter eggs.
- Matte spray paint for plastic surfaces — I used an all-in-one paint and primer spray paint.
- Foam pouncers
- Liquid gold leaf gilding
- Candies of your choice
- Minted mini art prints — Mine are 5×7 art prints that fit like a glove inside!
- Tissue paper filler — I used tissue paper fringe.
How To Make DIY Jumbo Polka Dot Easter Egg Favors
First, spray paint the plastic eggs the colors of your choice by breaking the eggs apart and painting each end separately to get the inside and outside.
This way the entire egg is the same even when it’s opened.
Let the eggs dry completely and put them back together.
You can even mix and match colors like I did to create the color blocked look.
Now use your foam pouncer and gold leafing to dab mini polka dots all around the egg. Be careful to not touch freshly inked dots!
These particular eggs have flat bottoms which makes it easy to stamping around them.
Let the gold leafing dry.
And then stuff them with filler, candies, and you favorite mini Minted prints!
Sit them out in a cute pastel basket for guests to grab on their way home. I’m soooo glad I convinced myself this mint green metal basket was a necessity when I was in Round Top last year, totally came in handy!
