DIY: Easter Egg Garland

Easter always tends to sneak up on me – I think it must be because the date goes back and forth between March and April. Earlier this week, my mom and I started talking about plans for Easter, and I realized that it’s next week. Insane! This garland is an easy way to throw up some last minute decorations around the house, and all it requires is a quick trip to your local hardware store.


blank paper and pen
10 pastel colored paint chips, with 3 colors on each one
white string
Scotch tape

Draw an Easter egg shape on the blank paper. Even for the artistically challenged (that’s me!), it’s a fairly easy shape to sketch.

Cut it out, and use it as your stencil.

Use the stencil to cut each paint chip individually.

To make the garland, tape the string on the back of each egg. Space the eggs out evenly using an official measuring device, like a small bottle of hand sanitizer.

Tape to the wall, and you’re all set!
