I don’t know about you, but for me Easter means two things: chocolate and crafts! Although I also feel the same about Christmas… and Halloween… maybe I have a chocolate-eating-craft-making problem?! Anyway, one thing that sets Easter apart for me, is that it’s a lot more light-hearted than the other seasons. There’s just something about it that I feel lends itself to fun, simple and easy-going craft projects. 🙂
With this in mind, I turned to my trusty Cricut to make some super simple Easter Egg stickers. I made an assortment of moustaches, spectacles and hats. I love my little quirky gentleman Easter Eggs!
Side note: This method is exactly how I made the stickers for my San Francisco travel scrapbook. Custom stickers are definitely a handy thing to be able to make!
Make your own Easter Egg stickers
Supplies and Tools
- Cricut machine (any model will do)
- Cricut vinyl
- Eggs to decorate
- Optional but very helpful: Cricut weeding tools
(If you don’t own a Cricut, then don’t worry – these vinyl sheets can be cut into shapes with normal scissors, so you can make your stickers that way instead. But it’s a lot cooler and neater with a Cricut!).
- Open up Cricut Design Space and browse for some images you’d like to turn into a sticker. Cricut machines can cut to incredible detail, so pretty much any shape will work. You could even make letter stickers to personalise the project with someone’s name!
- Convert all of the images to ‘cut’ files. Resize them so they’re all approximately 1 inch wide (this will fit a normal chicken’s egg, so adjust if you’re decorating something else).
- Load up your Cricut mat with your chosen vinyl, then cut out the shapes.
- Carefully remove the vinyl sheet from the mat. Cut out the stickers, leaving a small border around them. They’re now ready to be peeled off and stuck to your Easter Eggs!
TOP TIP: Cricut sell a reeeally handy set of tools to help remove stickers from the mats. It’s not essential, but I’d defo recommend it! Click here to have a look.
With your stickers made, you’re all set for a crafternoon of Easter Egg decorating! Whether you choose to make a quirky gentleman egg, a personalised name egg, or something else completely… have fun! – Mike.
