After the big spring cleaning before Easter, big and small fans of the Easter Bunny are busy: eggs are dyed, the front door is decorated with a homemade wreath, the tablecloth ironed and the apartment decorated. Nothing is nicer, of course DIY decoration ideas to shape yourself. For the Feast of the Resurrection, I wanted to decorate the kitchen and windows with Easter eggs garlands and thought about this simple, but chic design.
To make this pretty Easter Egg garland you need the following materials:
- patterned craft carton in coordinated colors
- Nature cord
- a motif punch
- Paper for the template
- strong liquid glue
2. Make a template
So that the Easter eggs get the same size and shape, it is helpful to make a template. For this I folded plain paper in the middle and drew half an egg on the fold.
3. Many, many colorful eggs
I wanted to make my Easter Egg garland in a pretty color gradient, but I had selected patterned cardboard in brown, dark green, light green, yellow, orange, red and purple in the craft shop. The pattern of the sheets of paper can differ calmly, I opted for checks, stripes and hearts.
From each cardboard I then cut out four eggs with the help of my template. I wanted to make four garlands and use an egg of every color for every Easter egg garland. Of course, you can also use all the eggs for a single long garland.
4. The garland is made
As a string for the garland I used natural cord in a pale yellow tone. First, I applied a strip of strong liquid glue on a paper egg, pressed the string as horizontally as possible and then fixed the natural cord with a short piece of patterned tape. The decorative band is not only decorative, but gives the cord more support.
When sticking the natural cord, I made sure that the pencil traces were on the back of the ice and I glued the string on the top half of the ice, so the eggs would not tip forward later, I also stuck the eggs at the same distance. Next I punched flowers out of white cardboard with a motif punch.
I stuck the white flowers on the middle of the ribbon. Finally, I cut off the natural cord and knotted loops on the ends. My Easter egg garland now only had to dry. So that the eggs would not fall off, I put the garland aside and waited half an hour before hanging until the glue had completely dried.
5. Decorate the apartment
When my garlands had dried, I was finally able to decorate my apartment in Easter. It was a lot of fun to pick the right place for the Easter egg garlands. The garlands can be hung on the loops on nails in the wall or fixed with adhesive film to the window frame. For more great crafting ideas, visit my blog DIY decoration ideas !
