I wanted to make a couple of Easter cards to go with these cute Easter baskets that I made.  Remember this sweet little basket?  After all the effort that went into those hand decorated Easter baskets, run-of-the-mill, dollar store Easter cards would just not do!

So, I started experimenting with material that I had on-hand from other projects.  For example, I had a couple of cute little wooden mason jar signs left over from a key chain project.  And, instead of scrapping them, I decided to transform them into Easter eggs…and, unlike the quirky key chains (that you’ll likely never see because they are so UGLY), the Easter eggs turned out pretty cute!


No one would have guessed I used Mason Jar signs for the Easter eggs, but I did!

AND, they were super EASY to make!

And, of course, now my mind is racing…what else can I make with these super cute wooden Easter eggs?  How about an Easter tree adorned with these wooden Easter eggs?  OMG!

  • Gel coloring markers, glue and raffia or string.

Instructions to Make Handmade Easter Cards:

  1. Using the gel pens or markers, draw stripes on the wooden labels (I guess I can call them “Easter eggs” now).  My pens were glittery, so they add a bit of sparkle but the sparkle is hard to see in the picture.
  2. Glue the flowers on the wooden egg and tie the ribbon.

  3. Glue the egg on the card. If you like, place a piece of cardstock under the card first like I did in the picture above.
  4. Download the Link to the Happy Easter saying and copy it on a color printer.  Use heavy white or other colored cardstock.
  5. Cut it to fit the card and then, glue it to the card.
  6. Sit back and admire your work!
