By: EcoHeidi Borchers

Save those spoons! Let the spoons serve as eggs for this Easter craft for adults. Spoon Easter Egg Greeting Cards from Heidi Borchers are eco-friendly and easy to create.

Materials:

  • Blank card 5" x 7"
  • Shredded paper (I used paper from my paper shredder)
  • Tulip Fabric Spray Paint - green
  • Plastic spoons - assorted colors
  • Tulip Dimensional Paints - assorted colors
  • Glue (I used Aleene's Tacky Glue)
  • Alphabet stencil (1" tall letters)
  • Pencil
  • Waxed paper
  • Small candle and matches

Instructions:

  1. Place the shredded paper onto waxed paper and spritz with the spray paint.

  3. Glue the dried painted shredded paper along the bottom edge of the card. Let glue dry.

  4. In a well-ventilated area, carefully hold the plastic spoon over the candle flame (but not in the flame). The flame should be under the area where the handle meets the bowl of the spoon.

  5. Within a few seconds the heat of the candle will soften the plastic. Pull the handle apart from the bowl of the spoon.

  6. If you need to trim the edges of the bowl or the stem, return to the heat of the flame for a few seconds to soften plastic. Then cut or trim while the plastic is still soft. Be careful! If you leave the plastic in the heat too long the plastic will be hot.

  8. Shake the dimensional paint down to the tip before using and always test before applying to project. Carefully squeeze the paint into different patterns and shapes onto the outside of the spoon bowl. Let paint dry completely.

Painting tips:

  1. On waxed paper, squeeze paint into different shapes or dots. After the paint dries, you can peel the painted shapes off the waxed paper, then glue shapes onto the plastic spoon bowl.

  2. You can also put a rhinestone in the middle of each dot.

  4. Hearts - Squeeze dot and pull into a line, then pull up. Repeat with other side of heart.
