Making a DIY Easter egg garland is a cute and simple way to add budget-friendly Easter decorations to your home. Whether you like them neutral or you love the bright Easter colors, I have a few different styles for you that are so easy to make!
DIY Easter Egg Garland Supplies List
- plastic Easter eggs – I got mine at Dollar Tree
- twine or ribbon to string the eggs on
- a needle with a large eye (but not too big that it won’t fit through the egg holes)
- ribbon or burlap (optional)
- silk plants (optional).
How Do You String Plastic Easter Eggs?
When you’re shopping for plastic easter eggs for your garland, be sure to grab the ones that have little holes in the ends. This makes the project so simple and you get a beautiful Easter decoration for your mantel or anywhere else in your home.
If you already have eggs and they don’t have holes, just snap the eggs shut on the twine. I tried this with cotton twine and it worked great. The eggs didn’t fall off, they just hang in a different direction.
How To Make An Easter Egg Garland
Making an Easter egg garland is pretty easy. Just sort out your colors in order and string the eggs on twine using a needle. You’ll need a needle with a larger eye to fit twine through. Pop the eggs open so it’s easier to fish the needle through then close the eggs back up.
Some eggs have two holes on each end, make sure to use holes that are in alignment or the eggs will hang slightly crooked. I didn’t do this so you can probably see what I mean by looking at the picture.
Decorating The Garland
This is completely optional, but you can add cute embellishments to your Easter garland to create different variations. Tying strips of ribbon between each egg, or even every couple of eggs, adds a little character.
I made an all-white DIY Easter egg garland, tied pieces of cut burlap ribbon, and added a piece of a boxwood pick. To make your garland a little “extra”, you can even make tassels to add to the ends.
In the photo below, I used a piece of 2″ wired ribbon cut in half lengthwise. The pieces were 8″ long.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY Plastic Easter Egg Garland. Before you go, be sure to take a look at my bunny garland for another Easter decor idea. I also made some super cute bunnies out of Dollar Tree eggs.
