Easter Decor

17 Mar

Easter is right around the corner, so I thought I would share my Easter decor with you. I decorated our mantle with fun spring-time and Easter decorations. One of the decorations is an easy Easter egg garland that I made. Here’s how I made it…

Supplies:

  • 3 pieces of scrapbook paper of your choosing
  • oval stencil
  • pen
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • Scotch tape

Directions:

  1. Choose your three pieces of scrap book paper and trace three ovals on to the back of the paper.Β 
  2. Cut out each of the ovals with your scissors.
  3. Using your hole punch, punch a hole about an inch from the top of each oval.
  4. String each oval along a piece of yarn measuring as long as you want. Mine was about ten feet.
  5. Space each of the ovals out evenly across the string of yarn and use a small piece of Scotch tape to adhere the back of each oval to the yarn.
  6. Hang your Easter egg garland and enjoy!

This is what my finished garland looks like on our mantle.

And, here are some more pictures…

basket

I got these little baskets from Target and put some Easter grass in them.

I’ve had this little birdie for a while. He’s been on my craft desk, but I thought he would fit in nicely on the mantle for now. I bought him from Michael’s.

chick eggs

I got these little egg chicks from the dollar spot at Target. Love!

I bought the plastic eggs from Michael’s and put some washi tape (also from Michael’s) on a few of them to add a littleΒ cuteness. I had the vase already.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my decor as much as I enjoyed creating and sharing it. Please share in the comment section below if you used this tutorial or have other ideas to share. I’d love to see them!

    Cute! I like the idea of doing Easter Eggs…I just made a little garland/bunting out of napkins this year. Sounds crazy but it turned out well! It is fun to add a little spring colour to the inside, yours looks adorable.
