Easter Cupcake Case Nest

The easiest, quickest, cutest, mess-free Easter craft/gift.  I spotted cupcake cases when I was at the shops and thought they would make perfect nests for Easter chicks.   It’s fun and easy for kids to assemble, or they can be given as gifts.


I found all of the materials for this craft at a discount store.  Most supermarkets, and craft stores like Spotlight, will have them too.

Easter Cupcake Case Nest

1. Fill the cupcake case with shredded paper. I didn’t use anything to secure the paper to the base of the cupcake case, but a bit of craft glue would work well as an option.

2. Nestle the chicks into the paper.

3. Add a few Easter eggs.

Option: Wrap in a plastic gift bag and add a ribbon.
