Easy DIY Easter Egg Garland
For the past couple of years I have been wanting to make one of these Easter egg garlands, but I could never figure out how to string the eggs on the garland. I finally figured it out, and I love how it turned out!
This Easter egg garland is super easy to make. I didn't have to buy anything to make it because I already had all the supplies I needed on hand to make it. To make this garland you will need:
- 10 plastic Easter eggs
- Jute twine
- Fabric scraps
If you take a close look at plastic Easter eggs, you will find that many of them have two small holes at one or both ends of the eggs. These holes are too small to put the twine through, but you can work around this.
I used a multi tool knife to make the holes a little larger, allowing the twine to pass easily through the eggs.
To make the garland I cut a piece of twine approximately 3 yards in length. I then took one end of the twine and pushed it down through the top of an egg and then back up through the other hole. Continue with each of the 10 eggs, spacing the eggs approximately 6 inches apart.
After you have strung all of the plastic eggs onto the twine, cut some strips of your scrap fabric. I cut my strips approximately 1/2 inch wide and 18 inches long. These measurements do not have to be exact and you also don't need to worry too much about cutting in a perfectly straight line.
Tie the scraps of fabric to the twine, one piece of fabric between each pair of eggs. I used three different colors of fabric and alternated them.
That's it! This Easter garland takes less than an hour to make and is so cute, you will want to also make one for a friend. Happy Easter!
