DIY Easter Egg Bunting

Can you believe Easter is just around the corner?! I can’t! The start of this year has flown by so quickly. But, it’s nice to get my Spring and Easter decorating done all at once. There’s always so much life and color associated with this season. With this dreary weather lately, it’s a nice way to welcome the holiday.

This Easter egg bunting was a super easy project…you could even get the kids involved with it! All you need is some twine or thread, some plastic eggs with holes at the ends, colorful ribbon, and hot glue.

Cut a piece of string to the length you need. Tie a knot at one end, and start stringing the thread through the eggs. I opened each egg up before stringing it which made it a little easier. Add as many eggs as you’d like and tie a knot in the other end.

After I was finished stringing the eggs, I still felt like the bunting wasn’t quite complete. So, I decided to add some ribbon rosettes at the ends and to the center to spice it up a bit.

These rosettes are incredibly simple to make. Tie the end of your ribbon into a knot. Hold the knot in one hand and twist the ribbon with the other.

Keeping the ribbon twisted, add a dab of hot glue to the side of the knot and secure the twisted ribbon. Continue this pattern until you have a rosette! When you’ve made a rosette the size you’d like, wrap the end to the underside of the rosette and secure it with hot glue.

Using tape, attach the rosettes to your bunting, and hang it up! That’s it…festive and adorable!

There are so many options for how you can decorate with this bunting. The fireplace mantel is always a good place, up the stairwell, outside on the porch railing, anywhere you can think of really!

I am loving the fact that when Easter is over, I can remove the eggs and use them for something else next year. You can never have too many plastic Easter eggs!

What do you guys think about making this into an Easter countdown? I thought it would be fun to make one for each child, containing 10 or so eggs, all numbered. As the days to Easter countdown, they could open the eggs to find a fun treat inside! How fun?! I mean, we countdown for Christmas, and numerous other holidays…why not Easter, too? It could even be educational: add a strip of paper to each egg containing a few verses of the Easter story. It would be a great way to introduce the story to your kids in a fun, easy-to-breakdown way. I’m going to try it out with my little man as Easter gets closer, and I’ll let all of you know how it goes!
