{easter egg garland}

Except for Halloween and Christmas, I don't decorate too much for holidays, but I do like to have just a little something festive around the house.  I spotted this Easter egg garland diy project made from  paint swatches the other day and I knew it was just the right amount of  decoration to celebrate Easter(other than these). You can see the full tutorial for the garland with a printable template here. I chose to cut out my egg shape free hand because I wanted it to have a more "home-made" look to it and I strung the shapes onto a half inch thick purple grosgrain ribbon. The entire project only took about 30 minutes and it fit perfectly on our kitchen chalk board. Disclaimer: this project does require you to go to your local hardware store and take more paint chips than a normal person while acting like you are just "researching" for an upcoming paint project.

There are so many more festive things you could do with these egg cut outs. They would be perfect on hand-made Easter cards or used as the place cards and dish markers for an Easter brunch.


  1. SO cute! I love that you used cute ribbon!

  2. I saw your comment on Modern Parents Messy Kids. I like the ribbon affect better. The only ribbon I have is red...I am going to Walmart today...maybe they would have those paint chip things too. Who knows. I will be getting some ribbon though...maybe green because I can use that for Christmas/St. Patrick's day/etc.

    Thanks for the idea!

  3. So glad you tried my project - it looks great on that chalk board. I've put it up on my pinterest page of reader's who've tried my ideas. Check it out here:
