Fun Easter Ideas: How to Make Bubble Wrap Eggs

Who knew that the packing material could be so fun?

You’ll love this easy DIY Easter egg tutorial.


The Easter Bunny may not use UPS, but that doesn’t mean mail material is irrelevant to this holiday. In fact, if you get a package in the weeks before Easter, be sure to save the bubble wrap! It will come in handy when you want to design these fun Easter eggs.

This Easter, take your eggs one step further with these decorating techniques from the Incredible Egg. All of the designs are easy and inexpensive to create and all of the supplies can be found at your local supermarket or craft store. Depending on how long you plan to keep the egg, you may wish to either hard boil or empty out the contents of the egg prior to decorating.

STEP 1: Thinly coat a piece of bubble packaging with acrylic paint using a small paint brush (HINT: Paint a very thin coat of paint three to four bubbles wide to ensure clear “bubble” imprints; dab bubble wrap with a paper towel if paint looks too thick)             

STEP 2: Gently roll a hard-boiled or blown out egg over the paint                                  

STEP 3: Let the paint dry on the egg, then repeat with another color, if desired
