I made this Easter egg banner completely from materials I already had. I cut out egg shapes from cardboard and some scrap fabric. I hot glued the fabric to the cardboard.
Then I printed out the word Easter and painstakingly cut out the letters and traced onto some more scrap fabric and then cut. That part would’ve went so much more quickly if I only had a Silhouette...sigh
Oh, well. It’s done. I hot glued the letters onto the eggs.
I also spray painted some wood clothespins which was no easy feat in all of this rain we’re having. I put them in a box and went onto the porch and just sprayed, sprayed, sprayed into the box. The box kept my porch protected from the paint.
I had this old frame that had just been hiding out in my closet for the past year or so that I drug out and removed the back and the glass.
It had a wire hanger on the back that had to be removed so I borrowed my boyfriend’s muscles to pull out the staples. I painted it a bright spring green and when it was dry, I stapled two pieced of white rick rack ribbon to the back of the frame.
Then, I just pinned on my Easter eggs with the clothespins. I love how it turned out. It’s so bright and cheery!
I can also easily remove the eggs when Easter is over and add letters for spring or whatever I want. (Not that I'm in any hurry to cut out more letters!)
Not only that, but when I get tired of it, I can turn it vertically (maybe add another ribbon to balance it out) and put it in my daughter’s room as a hairbow holder! You can’t beat that- a craft that does double duty!
