(1 Votes)


With a can cozy and styrofoam you can make a cute little candy dish for Easter. The chick is a great embellishment to top it off. In eight steps you can have this candy dish ready to be filled with goodies.


  • DecoArt Products Required
  • Foam Paint
    • FP02 - Yellow
    • FPG02 - Pink Glitter
    • FP03 - Orange
    • FP09 - Black
  • Styrofoam egg (2 5/16" x 3 1/16"), EG35BHL #601047
  • Small sharp scissors
  • Orange craft foam
  • Lo-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • 1/2" flat brush
  •  #2 round brush
  • Gift bag or plastic grass filler
  • Egg-shaped Easter candies
  •  Lime green can hug, Darice Foamies #1040-78


  1. Press large end of egg against hard surface to flatten slightly so egg will stand on end. Use flat brush and Yellow to paint egg shape; let dry.
  2. Trace and cut pattern shapes from orange craft foam.
  3. Refer to photo for placement and use round brush and Pink Glitter to paint cheeks.
  4. Use Black to paint dots for eyes; let dry.
  5. Use Yellow to paint "Happy" on can hug. Use Orange to paint "Easter". Let both dry.
  6. Refer to photo for placement and glue feet to bottom of egg, wings on sides, and triangle beak on face of chick.
  7. Glue bottom of chick feet to top of can hug rim, with chick centered and balanced on rim.
  8. Fill can hug partially with gift bag paper shred or plastic grass filler and top with jelly beans or other egg-shaped candies.

Helpful Tip:

  • When painting foam egg, place toothpick in bottom and secure into another foam surface to dry. (We turned foam plate over with rim on surface and stuck toothpick as anchor into center of plate.)
