I don't know if I'm the only one who has a bag of plastic Easter eggs sitting in my attic. I admit, I NEVER throw anything away. I have all kinds of stuff that I'm too cheap to buy again so I reuse year after year. Easter Eggs are one of those things.
So when I started thinking about football party treats for our birthday party, my mind wandered to the shape of the Easter eggs and started playing with ideas.
I ended up taking two of the long ends and spray painting them brown. Since the two sides don't attach together, I put a small piece of glue on the inside to hold them together (my dumb camera didn't record all these fun steps, so use your imagination here.)
Then I cut a 2 inch piece of white electrical tape. I cut the tape in half length wise and used that to hold the ends of the "football" together. The other half was cut into 2 one inch lengths and placed crosswise to form the laces of the football.
Quick, easy, and cheap. Gotta love party treats and favors like that!
