Shrink-Wrapped Easter Eggs

The Furno Heat Gun takes a decorative Easter gift to the next level

Overview

Over-sized Easter eggs with a decorative candy mosaic are a fun departure from traditional baskets. Shrink wrap helps keep candy fresh and organized in a colorful, graphic way.

1

Fill egg with paper

Fill the bottom of the egg with craft paper to make a solid base.

2

Add paper grass

Top with the shredded paper grass.

Arrange candy

Arrange the chocolate bunny and cookies on top of the shredded paper using smaller candies and jelly beans to fill in space.

4

Wrap

Carefully wrap the egg in shrink wrap keeping all the treats in place.

5

Cinch shrink wrap

Gather the extra wrap around the base of the egg and pull tight. Cinch the shrink wrap with an eight-inch length of wire.

6

Heat shrink wrap

With the setting on low, run the heat gun over the shrink wrap until it is taut. Be careful to not melt the chocolate.

7

Surprise treat!

You now have a perfectly wrapped container of treats, ready to surprise your special some-bunny.
