How to make an Easter egg garland {guest post}

This gorgeously simple craft today is from the lovely Brenda from 13acres.  Brenda was one of the very first bloggers I got to know when I first started blogging four years ago and we have remained friends ever since!  You can see the last guest post that she shared here.  Brenda is a clever creative soul and beautiful inside and out.  She and her family have recently embarked on a wonderful tree change and have just moved into their newly built farm house in country Victoria where she bakes delicious goodies, takes beautiful photos, grows her own veggies and even makes her own passata.  Whenever I visit her blog it always makes me smile.  I know you’d love it too.  

What you need 
  • coloured paper or old wrapping paper or old cards (anything really)
  • scissors
  • something to pierce little holes (baby hole punch or sharp knife) 
  • twine or jute string 

1. Make a template of an egg shape with a piece of cardboard.  

2. Use this to cut out egg shapes from your selection of paper.  


We used some old scrapbooking paper and old paper bunting cards that I used to make for markets.  


The bright colours were perfect for this Egg themed garland! 

3. Make two small holes at the narrower end of the egg as this is where you will thread the twine.  


4. Starting from the back, thread the twine in one hole and back through the other as this is how it will stay straight. 


Leave enough twine on either end for hanging and hey presto, your done!  An Easter Egg garland!
