In addition to Easter eggs, you can also add fun Peep shapes, ducks or bunnies to this garland. With thousands of felt and ribbon colors available, you can truly create a unique decor piece for your home.

What you'll need:

materials

  •  4 pastel-colored felt sheets (can be bought on Amazon for less than $1 a square)
  • Easter egg cookie cutter
  • Multicolored ribbon (I used a fun bunch from Martha Stewart)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hole punch (optional)

Step 1: Trace egg shapes into the felt

Place the cookie cutter on the felt and trace around it with the pencil. Repeat until you've traced about six eggs onto each sheet of felt.

Step 3: Tie shapes onto the long ribbon

You can do this first, but I found it much easier to tie the shapes with the ribbon already hanging on the mantel (or wherever you want to feature the finished garland).

Tie the eggs onto the larger ribbon by tying a small knot above the ribbon.

Repeat until all the eggs are on the garland.
