No matter how many times we increase our data plan, we seem to always come close to going over our limit each month. My husband travels, so he is often the culprit as Wi-Fi is not always an option. With a second middle schooler in the house asking for a phone, this data issue is not going to end. I try to be so careful when using our phone and will even print out a recipe instead of looking it up at the grocery store. However, sometimes at a craft store, I will look on Pinterest for inspiration rather than printing out tutorials. I recently found this Easter Egg Candle Holder on Pinterest and wanted to create something similar, so I kept going back to my phone looking for directions. All I could think of was, “Data Data Data.”  What is a family to do when there are so many demands on the same data account?

I started my first child on Walmart Family Mobile, and I am thrilled to hear about the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan featuring Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU ($7 value) every month per line for $49.88. This is such great news and will come in handy with tax season, as I can send info to my accountant without worrying about using too much data. A free movie each month will help us save on our cable bill, as we won’t have to rent one there. The kids can download a movie on SmartTV, a tablet, laptop or Chromecast and watch them on road trips so everyone is happy! This new plan is a win-win, and if you plan on getting a refund this tax season, head on over to Walmart to grab one of the many phones you can use with this plan.

We went with Galaxy Grand Prime phone. It is a a great smart phone for the price. This phone takes pretty sharp and colorful pix with it’s 8 megapixel camera and 5 megapixel front facing camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording available. It has a long battery life which is great when I am on the run with the kids.

 Now that we are saving money, we can use that extra bit to make some adorable Easter decorations, like these Easter Candle Holders. For less than $20 and about an hour of work (minus the time for the paint to dry), you will have adorable Easter decor that people won’t believe you made.

DIY Easter Egg Candle Holder Tutorial

 

The original tutorial I found shows you how to create beaded eggs, but I found some that were already beaded and knew that these would save time and money.

You will need:

  • Beaded Easter Eggs, or make your own.
  • 1/4 inch (min) wooden dowel
  • Small wooden Plaques
  • Drill, wood glue and spray paint

Start by drilling a hole into the ends of your Easter eggs. Mine turned out to be styrofoam so this was a little messy.

Drill a hole into your wooden plaques, going deeper into the wood on the bottom plaque.

Cut the length of the dowel to fit the number of eggs in your holder, with about 1/3 of an inch on each side.

Spray paint the top and bottom of the Candle Holder. Allow to dry completely.

Next, weave the dowel into each egg and attach to the wooden plaques. You can add wood glue in the holes if it is not a tight fit.
