DIY painted egg cups

Target is one block away from my house.  As many trips as I take in a week , I could probably be 10lbs lighter if I walked ever time I went.

This weekend while strolling through the Easter isle I stumbled across these $2 wood egg cups. I am not a huge egg eater, but thought they would be super cute to paint and plant succulents inside.

I pulled out a few of my favorite paint colors, a small paint brush and pretended I was in pastel wonderland.

I started off by painting the bottom, letting it fully dry before painting the top. I tried taping off each section using washi tape, but with the cup being round I found it was hard to get a perfect line.

Instead of taping each section, I ran my paint brush along the bottom edge and followed it around.

Once I had all my names typed out I attached each paper flag to a tooth pick. You can fold the paper however you like .  I first folded my two ends and then cut a triangle from the ends to make a flag  or banner shape.
