DIY last minute Easter gift and candle!

It is Easter time everyone!! Here in Greece we love Easter and we celebrate it with lot of joy and respect. But what about those sudden invitations from family and friends? Can you think what to do with an empty eggcup and some candy? What about a lovely Easter candle made of scrap ribbons and beads? Let's see how to create beautiful little things to give as present to those we love!

Open your egg-cup and place inside the paper grass to give a nest effect.

Place inside your candy caramels and the candle. With a red marker you can write something on the inside. I wrote Happy Easter!

Open the plastic sheet and put some more paper grass. Place the egg-cup on the center of the sheet and join the four angles with the wooden laundry clip. Place your ribbon and you are done!!!

Start the ribbon tying and place the beads using thinner ribbon or hot glue. I passed the small beads inside a thinner thread. You can improvise by using various techniques.
