How to DIY Homemade Easter Egg Glow Fireflies

DIY Homemade Easter Egg Glow Fireflies

These little lightening bugs were made with plastic Easter eggs and flameless LED tealights inside. So fun! There are so many things to do during summer vacation and yet, some days it can be hard to think of anything to do. This is a super quick craft to help your kids feel a little bit of magic.

These fireflies are super easy to make. Just pop a flameless LED tealight into a plastic Easter egg. You don’t even need glue! Poke holes through the egg with a thumbtack to insert the pipe cleaners. The eyes are drawn onto white sticky labels, and the wings are silver duct tape. Quick, easy, and totally cute! Proto-lightening bug version with glittery scrapbook paper wings and puff ball eyes.
