Easter is coming up and it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to give your loved ones.
Today, I’m going to show you how to make Easter egg holders with a Cricut machine.
All you need is:
-Cricut Explore Air 2 (or any other Cricut machine)
-Design Space software
-glue stick or tacky glue
1: Design Your Easter Egg Holder With Cricut
First of all, open up the Design Space software and click on the “New Project” button. Then choose “Design from Scratch” from the drop down menu and select “Easter Egg Holder”. If you don’t see this option, go ahead and create your own project.
Easter is a great time to use your Cricut Maker. It’s not just for cutting, but there are many projects you can make with it. Today we are going to be making some cute Easter egg holders that you can put in your basket or give away as gifts.
Here is what you will need:
Cricut Maker Machine
Fabric (I used a cotton material, but you can use anything like felt)
Glue gun and glue sticks
- Cut out your fabric pieces using the shapes above. This will give you 6 different shapes per sheet of material. I used two different colors of fabric so they would stand out better in photos, but that is optional too! You could also use one color if you wanted them all to look similar if that was your preference. The shapes are pretty simple so any beginner should be able to do this without much trouble at all! If you don’t have access to a Cricut Maker yet, there are always other ways of cutting out shapes like drawing them by hand or using scissors and an exacto knife!
Easter is just around the corner and I have been busy making some cute Easter crafts for the kids. This year, I wanted to make something that was easy to make, but also fun for the kids to play with.
I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out some Easter egg holders and then paint them with vinyl paint. I used my Cricut Craft Room software for this project because it allows you to scale and resize your images before cutting them out. This means that you don’t have to worry about making sure that your image will fit on your mat or cutting mat. Simply open up your image, select “Scale” from the menu bar and change the number until your image fits on your mat (it will tell you how many inches high/wide it needs to be). Then hit “Accept” and you’re ready to cut!

Here’s a great DIY Easter craft idea to make with your Cricut! This Easter egg box holder is so easy to make and perfect for any occasion.
You can make these in just a few minutes. You don’t have to be an expert crafter to be able to make these, they are so simple! If you can use a Cricut you can create these cute egg holders.
These little boxes are so cute and would be perfect for any Easter celebration or just for fun! The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating them!
We used our Cricut Explore Air 2 for this project but it can be done with any Cricut machine. I highly recommend using the Explore Air 2 because it has so many features that will help enhance your projects, especially if you’re just getting started with the Cricut machine.

Easter is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to decorate your Easter eggs this year.
You can buy plastic egg holders for a pretty penny in the store, but why spend money on something that you can easily make at home?
Here are some simple ways to make Easter egg holders using Cricut Maker:
- Use the Cricut Maker to cut out a design on cardstock paper. You can use anything you like as long as it is the right size and shape.
- Trace around your design onto the backside of some felt and cut out the shape using scissors or an X-acto knife.
- Lay your cardstock down on top of a piece of fabric that has been folded over so they are touching each other. Use an iron to flatten them together, then flip over so that the cardstock is facing up again and glue down with hot glue or double-sided tape (or even contact paper!). If you want to add an extra layer of protection against moisture, then use clear packing tape around the edges of your cardstock insert too!
- Cut out another piece of fabric from the same material as before
Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning how you’re going to decorate your Easter egg holders.
Egg holders are an easy way to add some color and style to your breakfast table. Whether it’s for Sunday brunch or an Easter egg hunt, these DIY projects are full of fun ideas for making a special treat for your family and friends.

- Cut out two bunny faces from each color of paper using the Silhouette Design Space software. Make sure you like how they look before cutting because you can’t change them once they are cut! You will need one of each color for each holder. If you don’t have Silhouette Design Space or want a different design, you can find some free
I’m so happy to share this project with you! I love it because it is super easy and cheap to make.
Here’s what you need:
-Cricut Explore Air 2 machine (I got mine from Amazon for $250)
-Cricut vinyl (I used the black matte)
-Cardboard egg holders (mine are from Target)
-Hot glue gun
First, cut out your vinyl piece. I made mine about 9 inches by 4 inches wide because I wanted to cover up all of the cardboard on my egg holder. If you don’t care about covering up all of the cardboard, then make it bigger than 4×9. I also cut out a smaller piece of vinyl that was 3×2 to go over the hole in middle of my holder where they put the eggs in.
Next, lay your egg holder on top of your vinyl with the bottom facing up and then use hot glue to secure it down so that there aren’t any bubbles underneath. Then flip your egg holder over so that the top part is facing down and secure it with another layer of hot glue around all edges so that no air bubbles can get through (this will be covered up anyways). Last step is
