Easter Craft: Candied Eggshells

Candied  Eggshells

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Here's a tabletop treat that's guaranteed to crack a smile.


  • Empty paper egg carton
  • Nontoxic acrylic paints
  • Yellow jelly beans
  • Easter basket grass


Cut or tear the cups from an empty paper egg carton.

Use nontoxic acrylic paints to coat the insides white and the outsides tan or beige.

Once the shells are dry, fill paper candy cups or mini bake cups with yellow jelly beans and place them inside the shells.

Then set a pair atop a small nest of Easter basket grass beside each place setting.
