This Watercolor Egg Garland Is the Perfect Easter Decor

Get hoppin' and string up a colorful, festive garland before that Easter Bunny arrives! This project is easier than dyeing eggs (though that's another fun way to spend a crafternoon), and is a great way to get the whole fam in on the holiday action.

Watercolor Easter Egg Garland

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Watercolor paints
  • Watercolor paper or card stock
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Egg template
  • Sewing machine and thread (or scotch tape and twine)

Instructions

1. Paint Your Paper

Grab your watercolors and let your inner artist come out and play. You can paint a pattern or keep it abstract with a variety of painting techniques that'll show you all the cool ways you can explore color.

To keep it in line with Easter, stick to a pastel color palette.

2. Cut Out the Easter Eggs

Print the PDF egg template, cut it out and trace it onto the back of your paper. Cut out each egg.

3. Assemble the Garland

There are two easy ways to turn your eggs into a garland: if you have a sewing machine, you can stitch the eggs together leaving a few inches between each egg to evenly space them out.

Pro Tip

Always test your stitches on a piece of scrap paper before sewing your garland. This way you can make any tension adjustments needed.

If you're not into sewing (or you wanna keep the whole process kid-friendly,) break out the scotch tape and assemble the garland with a length of twine.

4. Decorate

Once the garland is assembled, hang it up! These paper Easter eggs would also make adorable embellishments for scrapbook pages or handmade cards , or they can be used as gift tags for special Easter treats .


Find Your Next Project

If you've got spring fever, these projects are here to satisfy.

Finally, complete your third and final project: a bluebird on a flowering branch. You'll use the primary palette with the addition of burnt sienna.
One of my favorite things about paper is how quickly it can turn from a simple flat sheet into a gorgeously festive party statement. And this leaf garland is a great example. You can pull one together in under an hour, then drape it across a wall to make your event feel extra special. It's also completely customizable: Use shades of green for a foliage look, harvest hues for a Halloween party, or even metallics for the new year.Paper GarlandHow to make a homemade garland
