easter egg garland

Are you ready for Easter?  It’s less than a week away, and I’ve added a few small touches to our home for the holiday.

This is such a simple idea that’s been circulating on Pinterest for the past few years…I’ve been wanting to create one for my Easter candy buffet.

To make this Easter egg garland, you will need…

  • paint sample chips
  • string or natural jute
  • tape
  • scissors
  • oval-shaped stencil

After receiving a few strange looks as I loaded up on paint chips at my local Home Depot, I decided which shades of each color I was going to use for the garland.

Using the stencil, I traced an oval on each paint chip.  I made sure to somewhat center the stencil so that I was able to include the various shades of each color on the oval shapes…sort of what an egg looks like when it is changing colors as it is being dyed.

The next step was to cut out the oval shapes.

The final step was to tape the shapes to a piece of jute.  This is done on the back of the paint chips so it is not visible.

Now it’s all ready to hang…

I love the bright colors and simplicity of it!

And so easy…I think it took all of 15 minutes to create.
