Easter Egg Garland

.

Today is all about Easter. Well, Easter decorations. And that’s why I came up with this.

 

It’s like egg garland……hanging from your wall/door/furniture.

 

It’s a quick project and involves minimal sewing.

 

You’ll Need:

 

  • Egg template
  • Scraps of fabric
  • Ribbon/Ric-Rac/Buttons/Etc
  • Double sided, iron-on adhesive
  • Twine/Raffia/Yarn/String/Etc
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
 
Make a template for your egg. Short stubby eggs, tall slender eggs, bumpy and lumpy eggs……..any type will do.

 

Then cut out as many eggs as you’d like to string up on your wall/door/furniture. I made mine with 6, planning on draping mine on the door. However many eggs you cut out, cut that same number out in a plain color, as your backing. Then cut out that same number again of double sided fusing.

 

Iron all 3 pieces together. Do this to all of your eggs.

 

Now, decide how you want to decorate your eggs. Sew any decorations/embellishments onto your egg and then sew all the way around your egg.

 

Stitch any ribbon into place.

 

And then trim around the edges, cutting off the excess ribbon. (Heat seal any ends of ribbon with a lighter so that it doesn’t unravel.) Then make a seam all the way around the egg.

 

Attach your eggs to some twine/yarn/string along the side seams of the eggs.

 

Then string up in your house somewhere.

 

I will be stringing mine on my front door, on the outside. Well, once the snow-storms subside. But first, I will spray my eggs with Scotch Gaurd, just for a bit of added protection. And maybe with a ‘Happy Spring’ or ‘Happy Easter’ sign right there with it.

 

But have fun with it.

 

And enjoy your Easter!

    LOVE this blog, Ashley. I am currently in the process of making those fabric blocks…and plan on making a tutu as well. :) Thanks for the ideas.

    ALSO: on that last pic–do you remember where you bought that fabric of the egg on the left? The one that is light blue and white? If so, please let me know. I love it! :)

    You are a doll. I just love it all! My computer kept kicking me out of your blogs, so I am super happy to be back and see all the amazing things you have come up with. Did you see that clip on creativity they have on youtube from President Uchdorf? It makes me think of you.
