The first thing you’ll need to do is blow out enough eggs to cover the length that you’ll be making your garland. For this little one I made to go across my fantel (fake mantel!), I used 16 eggs.
Once you’ve got your eggs all set, you’ll probably need to make the holes on each end a little bigger, just for ease of stringing. You can easily do this using a push pin.
(Thank you to my daughter for letting me photograph her dirty fingernails while she helped me!)
Next, grab some twine or ribbon and start stringing! I used natural jute twine, but anything will work.
Tie a loop or a knot at one end to keep your eggs from falling off.
You can see I made my holes quite large. It really doesn’t matter at all. Once the eggs are all side-by-side, the holes are hidden completely! If you’re still having a hard time getting the twine through, try grabbing it with tweezers and pulling it through the hole. It worked for me!
This is a great Easter decoration. It looks so nice paired with pretty things like satin ribbon or even rougher natural things like reclaimed wood and jute.
It’s also a fabulous family project!
It takes a lot of lung power to blow out all those eggs! It’s great to be able to take turns.
When you’re done, you’ll have a beautiful garland that you’ll be able to keep and reuse for many years to come! Several of the eggs I used here were actually blown out last year and I was amazed at how well they keep. Good to know!
