Easter is almost here! We can almost hear the Easter bunny hopping along to hide some eggs filled with treasures! Now that it’s a little warmer, we’re finally feeling a little bit of the Spring season, so it’s time to party! If you’re ready to throw down a little Easter bash, make sure there’s not a guest who leaves empty-handed with these adorable little party favors. What does the Easter bunny love more than hiding eggs filled with sweets? Carrots, of course!
Fill your peep’s Easter baskets with these sweet gumball treats. They are a quick and easy project to put together, so let’s hop right to it.
STEP ONE: Gather Supplies
STEP TWO: Cut the Tissue Paper
Trim tissue paper into 4 x 9 inch strips. You’ll need two strips for each tube.
STEP THREE: Glue Tissue Paper
Adhere two tissue paper strips together at one long side.
STEP FOUR: Wrap the Tissue Paper
Tape one cap onto the tube so it is secure and won’t pop off.
Using long glued side, wrap tissue paper strips around the tube hiding the secure cap. Apply glue as you’re wrapping to hold tissue in place.
STEP FIVE: Fringe the Tissue Top
Use scissors to create the carrot top’s fringe. TIP: Don’t cut all the way to the tube’s plastic stopper. Leave about ¼” uncut to prevent tearing.
STEP SIX: Create Tag
Punch tag with hole punch and thread with baker’s twine.
STEP SEVEN: Tie Top and Fill
Tie fringed top with tag and fill tube from the bottom with gumballs.
