Here’s a Quick and Easy Way to Make Easter Egg Garland

Turn cheap plastic Easter eggs into a gorgeous elegant egg garland for Easter decor in minutes with this easy DIY. Use painted or colorful plastic eggs.

If there is a way to turn plastic Easter eggs into beautiful seasonal decor, I’ll find it! I tend to use items I have on hand and repurpose old decor to create new pieces for each holiday so I don’t accumulate too many things. It’s very satisfying to change something to fit with a current style or mood. And that’s just what I did for an Easter egg garland DIY this year!

Hi there. Welcome to day six of A Very Global Easter where Casa Watkins Living and I are sharing seven days of globally inspired Easter DIYs and decorating tips.  We are getting close to wrapping it up but have a couple of more to share with you.

How to Make Plastic Easter Egg Garland

Optional: Paint your plastic Easter eggs in colors that fit with your decor.

  • Start by spray painting plastic eggs with chalkboard spray paint or primer.
  • Once they are dry,  use craft paint and gave each one two coats of a favorite hue.

  • Did you know notice that plastic eggs already have a hole in each end?   This makes it super easy to thread fishing wire through to make egg garland.

  • Start by threading a small button or bead on one end of the fishing wire so the eggs don’t slip off. Continue by threading eggs on one by one. Use a long needle or open the eggs to make threading easier. Add a second button or bead after the last egg is on.

Hang on a fireplace mantel, piece of furniture, or drape over a piece of art or mirror for a beautiful Easter vignette!

Gold Bunny Bank

I hung my Easter egg garland around a piece of art over the foyer cabinet and added a gold bunny bank to complete the holiday decor. 

I love how the colors tie into our hallway art gallery.  This is the view right when you walk in the front door.

I was planning on doing a bit more but I’ve been fighting a cold this last week and am lacking my usual energy.  I am planning on decorating for spring soon!
