Easter Egg Ornaments
- decorative paper (I used Vintage Bliss from Simple Stories.)
- crafter's tape
- Easter egg template (see below)
1. Save and print out a copy of the Easter egg template. Cut out one of the eggs to use as the pattern to cut out additional eggs from 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. Take one of the folded pieces. With it still folded, apply a small amount of adhesive to one of the sides.
4. Lay another folded egg over the adhesive on the first egg 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 yarn across one of the ornament halves. 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 a second half piece on top of the first. This will sandwich the yarn into the center of the ornament.
Hang and enjoy your beautiful Easter eggs! They'd be perfect on an Easter tree like Nell from Rhythms of Play showed here.
- 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.
