Easter Egg Lights

April 10, 2017

We love this fun project – so quick and easy.  Perfect for an Easter weekend party.

Required materials:

  • Inexpensive Plastic Easter Eggs
  • One string of mini lights (or more if you’d like!)
  • Drill driver and an assortment of drill bits


1. David tried out 3 different drill bits to find the size hole that closest matched the base of the string of mini lights.  For our standard mini lights, the drill bit of choice was 3/16″.

For a string of LED lights with a slightly larger base, you’d need to try the next size up.  A snug fit over the base of the light didn’t require any type of hot glue to keep the eggs on the lights.


2. Here’s a shot of what that drilled hole looks like:



3.  Just repeat and pop an egg onto every bulb.



4. As the sun goes down, these lights just look so pretty.
