DIY Easter Garland Decoration –> I grew up with a mom who crafted so I think it’s in my blood! I can’t walk through the Dollar Tree without craft ideas popping into my head. And I’m guessing you suffer a similar affliction if you’re here!
What is SO great about this Easter craft project is that it takes about 15 minutes, $5 and there is virtually NO mess to clean up when you’re done! Do it with kids or by yourself, it’s great either way!
How to make this DIY Easter Garland Craft:
If you’d like to watch the instructions you can see them here:
If you’re thinking, “Well that looks easy!” it really is! I love that this can be done with kids or without and doesn’t make a mess. I know part of childhood is making messes, but sometimes you just need a clean craft that they still enjoy ;)
And while I know that all Dollar Tree stores are different, I’m guessing you won’t have a problem finding these items there. Ours is one of the smallest store sizes and it carried these items. (Isn’t it fun going to the huge stores, though? We have one about 25 minutes away and if I’m ever in the area I can’t help but stop in!)
Easter Garland Decoration Supplies:
While we purchased all of these items at the Dollar Tree, you could certainly find them other places. I particularly liked the Easter bunny eggs because they split down the side. But other styles of Easter eggs could work well, too.
– 2 or 3 packages of Easter Bunny eggs (or eggs of your choice!)
– 1 plastic tablecloth
– Ribbon of choice
– String or twine (length as long as you’d like your garland to be)
With these supplies you could make at least 20′ of garland…it goes a LONG way! Of course, you can space your eggs closer or farther apart and go even further.
How to make your Easter Garland Craft
1. Place your eggs on the string. Again, I placed mine about 6″ apart, but you can make them as close or far apart as you would like. You might have to play around a little to get them to stand up straight. Placing the string towards the top seemed to work best for me!
2. Cut your tablecloth in 1″ strips. You can see this best in the video, but by cutting the tablecloth while it is still folded, you can get 4 strips per cut. Simply leave it folded and then fold it one more time. Cut your strips, then find the fold and cut that to separate the strips. Each strip ends up being about 10″ long.
3. Cut your ribbon. Use a strip of tablecloth as a guide and cut strips of ribbon to match the length. This roll of sparkly ribbon from the Dollar Tree made about 10 strips. I also used some other ribbon (the yellow and white with gold) that we had at home, but you wouldn’t need to!
4. Tie your strips of table cloth and ribbon onto the string. No need to double knot! One tie holds these in place just fine. I alternated two pieces of tablecloth to one piece of ribbon, but again, do what you think looks best!
That’s it! This really is a simple craft, but it creates a big impact in any room.
Display your Easter Garland Decoration
Now your Easter Garland is ready to be displayed! Hang it on a mantle or staircase railing and stand back and admire! It is fairly durable, so you could also put it outside. And I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing you’ll get quite a few compliments from your new creation ;)
We hope you have as much fun making this as we did! We’d love to know if you make any changes and of course how yours turns out!
We hope you have a great (Crafty!) Easter!!
