Easter Egg Garland

Pinterest projects





The other day it occurred to me that Easter is just over a month away. For the first time ever, we are hosting Easter at our house, so I obviously need to pull out the cute and decorate! I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I had to makes it! 

To make you'll need: paint chips, a tiny hole punch, and ribbon. 

First, take each paint strip and cut ovals. I used large square samples and cut them using an oval shaped scrap booking tool I have. I was able too get four eggs from each chip.





Once you have all the eggs you want cut out, arrange them how you would like them on the garland. I just did this on my kitchen floor -- feel free to judge how dirty that floor is,  maybe that will be my motivation to finally mop! Anyway...



Once they are arranged, punch the eggs with the hole punch. I chose a rainbow pattern, but you could do it anyway you like. I wasn't too concerned about the punches being straight since I wanted them to hang a little lopsided, so they looked more like individual eggs. I chose two holes per egg for stability, but I'm guessing one would work too. 




Next, sting each egg on to the ribbon. Hang and arrange the eggs! That's it!


I'm absolutely in love with how the garland came out! I can't wait to get the rest of the decorations up for Easter!
