My Cheap & Easy Easter Garland

Want a cheap and easy Easter Egg Garland?

I saw these large plastic Easter eggs in our grocery store and bought several packages with plans to make an Easter Egg Garland.

I already had ribbons on hand and I gathered up my scissors, thin wire and buttons.  

The eggs come apart and at least one end already had a tiny hole.  I cut the wire into strips and fashioned a loop and twisted the ends.  I fed the ends through the hole in the plastic egg.  At first I thought I would use the button to hold the wire in place inside the egg but I found out I didn't need to do that.  I just pulled the wire ends apart inside the egg to hold the wire in place.  

Next I threaded ribbon through the egg wire hanger loops and then use different ribbons to tie each egg in place on the ribbon garland.  

Here's the finished Easter Egg Garland hanging in my kitchen widow.  

This project took about 15 minutes and was pretty cheap considering all I had to buy was the plastic eggs. 

We're going to have ham for Easter dinner...just my Hubby and me.  We have a teeny, tiny ham and will probably still have lots left over.
