Easter Crafting Craziness – Character Eggs

Right now Ms M is totally into Sesame Street and Minions, while N is all about the Ninjas, both the Teenage Mutant Turtle and regular varieties. I searched several different stores and couldn’t find plastic eggs in any of these varieties.

So what’s a mom to do but make some!!! So a little vinyl, some electrical tape, a black sharpie, some googly eyes and I was set!

For Ms M – Both good and evil minions. The purple minions really need some hair, but I haven’t found anything in my stash that I can use yet.

Minion Eggs

  • Electrical tape for the goggle bands
  • Silver paper attached using terrifically tacky tape and cut using Nestabilities dies
  • Googly eyes attached with E6000 glue
  • Sharpie for the hair and evil minon teeth

For Ms M – Sesame street characters
Sesame Street EggsMaterials:

  • Characters were cut using the Cricut Sesame Street Friends cartridge
  • Black, white, brown, orange, and red vinyl
  • Black sharpie for the eyes and Ernie and Bert’s hair

For N – Some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle EggsMaterials:

  • Masks cut using the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge – superhero mask and then welded to some curved shapes for the knot
  • Red, orange, and blue and purple vinyl

For N – Some Standard Ninjas

Ninja Eggs


  • Square and 2 circles from Cricut craft room basic welded
  • White vinyl
  • Sharpie to draw eyes and eye brows

I can’t wait to put these in the kids baskets and see their reaction on the “Easter Bunny” knowing just what kind of eggs they wanted.
