  • Colored paper

  • Scissors or craft knife

  • Pencil

  • Fringe scissors

  • Permanent tape roller

  • Ribbon

  • Floral butterfly on wire, or other embellishments

  • Hard-boiled egg

  • Nontoxic pen or marker


  1. Cut an 8-by-1 1/2-inch strip from colored paper. Draw a pencil line down the length of the strip, 1 inch from one long side. Make a mark 4 1/2 inches from one end of the strip.

  2. Cut a 1-inch fringe with fringe scissors, using the pencil line as a guide, along the entire length of the strip.

  3. Using the tape roller, apply adhesive from the 4 1/2-inch mark to the end of the strip in the area that is not fringed. Coil the strip, creating a cylinder.

  4. Bend and fray the ends of fringe to look like grass. Tie a ribbon around the base of the cup.

  5. Use a glue gun to attach a butterfly on a wire or other embellishments (flowers, bumblebees, etc.) to the inside of the cup.

  6. Write guest's name on hard-boiled egg with a pen or marker. Place egg in holder.
