Easter Egg Ornament Craft

The warmer weather has put me in the mood for some spring crafting! With Easter just around the corner, the kids and I began making a few crafts that could also serve as decorations. One of the crafts we made were these Easter Egg Ornaments out of pretty, pastel paper. Making them was a fun and easy way to begin adding little touches of spring to the home. Keep reading to see how you and your kids can quickly whip up your own Easter Egg Ornaments with just a few simple supplies that you probably already have in your crafts stash.

Easter Egg Ornaments
Supplies
pad of decorative paper (I used Vintage Bliss from Simple Stories.)
crafter's tape
scissors
yarn
beads
Easter egg template (see below)

Directions
1. Save and print out a copy of the Easter egg template. Cut out one of the eggs to use as a pattern piece to cut out additional eggs from your decorative paper. You'll need four egg pieces to make each ornament so be sure to cut out a lot.

2. Fold the paper eggs in half lengthwise.

3. With the piece still folded, apply a small amount of adhesive to one of the sides.

4. Lay a second paper over the adhesive making sure to match up the edges of both pieces of paper. This will be one half of your ornament. Use two other egg pieces to make the other half of the ornament.

5. Cut a piece of yarn that is several inches long.

6. Tie the two ends together into a knot. Thread a bead over the opposite side of the yarn and pull it down to the knot.

7.Lay the yard across one half of the egg ornament. Make sure that the bead is sitting plush against the bottom of the egg. Apply adhesive to the sections of paper that the yarn is touching. Lay the other half of the ornament on top of the first. This will sandwich the yarn into the center of the ornament.

8. Thread a second bead onto the yarn allowing it to rest on top of the egg. Tie a knot to secure it in place. Tip: If necessary, you can neaten up the edges of your egg with your scissors.

Hang and enjoy your beautiful Easter eggs! They'd be perfect on an Easter tree like Nell from Rhythms of Play showed here.

Alternative ideas
  • String up several on a piece of twine to make a unique garland.
  • Group some of the eggs together in a basket to use for decoration.
  • Have the kids write a sweet note on each one and gift them to friends and family members.

Happy crafting!
