Spruce up your home for spring and add some adorable Easter flair with this easy, colorful and fun Easter egg garland DIY project. Using brightly colored ribbons, soft felt and an Easter egg cookie cutter, you can create a one-of-a-kind garland that will instantly brighten up your kitchen, living room or even a nursery. Not only is this an easy, quick project, it costs less than $15!
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:
- 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)
- 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 2: Cut out shapes and punch holes
Cut your egg shapes with scissors.
Using a hole punch or your pencil, punch a hole in the top of the egg large enough to string ribbon through.
String a piece of ribbon through the hole and match up the ends.
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.
There’s your garland — it’s cute, easy and instantly adds some spring flair to your home!
