When we moved into our new house we had a beautiful fireplace, but no mantel! We ordered one off Etsy, and now it is one of my favorite spots to decorate for the holidays.
I purchased a lambs ear garland from Hobby Lobby that I can leave up year-round, but it wanted something more colorful for my spring decor.
How to Make an Easter Egg Garland
Start by choosing your eggs. I found some sparkly glitter eggs from Dollar Tree. I used one and a half packages of eggs for my garland but I could have easily have used all of them.
I found the perfect spring colors of twine to use for my garland, but any string or yarn will work. Cut the twine as long as you want your garland to be.
Thread the three colors of twine onto a large yarn needle.
Note: If you don’t have a large enough needle for your project, you can tightly wrap a piece of tape around the end of your twine to make it easier to thread through the eggs.
Almost all plastic eggs have small holes at either end of them. (I believe this is a safety precaution, in case someone accidentally swallows them.)
Tie a double knot at the end of the twine to keep the eggs from falling off.
Open up the egg, and thread the twine through one end of the egg, through the middle of the egg, and then out the other side.
Be careful to not get the twine caught in the two egg halves, then close the egg back up, and slide the egg down the twine.
I added a plastic pearl bead in between each egg. This step is optional, but I like the way it looked over having the eggs touching. I actually made the garland first with no beads but I like it much better with the pearls than without.
On a few of my eggs, the holes were closed up. I used my piercing tool to easily re-poke the hole.
Continue this process until you get to the end of the twine. Tie another double knot at the end to keep the eggs from falling off.

That’s it! See how easy that was? This took me less than 10 minutes to make, and that was mostly because I was stopping to take pictures and videos of the project. And I purchased all my supplies at Dollar Tree so it cost me only $5 to make (two bags of eggs, one package of twine, and one package of beads.)
