  • To make the handle, use the wire cutters to cut a pipe cleaner (chenille stem). Then with the glue gun, glue each end of the pipe cleaner to the inside of the cup. Let dry.

  • Then take a small piece of ribbon and wrap it around the pipe cleaner stem. Using another small piece of ribbon create a small bow and attach to the handle with the glue gun.

  • Glue a small craft decal the front of the bow.

  • Lastly, cut the top of the construction paper in straight vertical lines to create grass.

  • Let it dry completely.

  • Put a little Easter grass in the cup and fill with HERSHEY'S Easter Chocolates and Candies.

  • Let it dry completely.
