Easter Egg Garland - Kids Craft

With Easter just days away, Molly and I cooked up a quick and easy garland to dress up the mantel and make our house look festive.  This worked well with our St. Patty’s Day Shamrock garland, so I sought to replicate it.   I wasn’t as focused on the end result – just spending an hour doing this with her was a lot of fun.  She’s very proud of it and showed Mike as soon as he got home from work.

First, we started with a few crafty materials.

·         Elmer’s School Glue
·         Martha Stewart Bunny Punch
·         PSA Peel & Stick stamper loaded with espresso ink and easter egg from PSA Topiary
·         PSA Peel & Stick stamper loaded with plum purple ink and bunny from PSA Little Bunny
·         Glitter glue
·         A small hole punch (we used one with a star)
·         Fiskars scissors
·         The Twinery twine
·         Pastel cardstock

I first folded the paper in half, the cut out eggs.    With the remaining paper, I let Molly punch the bunnies out using the Martha Stewart bunny punch.

Then she glued the bunnies onto the eggs.

We stamped a few of the eggs, alternating between Little Bunny with plum purple ink and the easter egg from PSA Topiary with espresso ink.

We used some glitter glue, because really – gliter glue is way more exciting than regular school glue.

Time to punch the holes.

Threading the twine required a lot of assistance, but Molly also worked hard to do it herself.

All threaded up... 

 And ta-da!  Doesn't it look cute?  Most importantly.... it was fun!
