I’m not putting my eggs in one basket.

In fact, I’m taking them out of the basket and stringing them from my mantel and filling up glass jars from HomeGoods with the rest.

DIY Egg Garland

1) Buy cheap plastic eggs (the kind with the holes in both the top and bottom – try the dollar store)

I have to confess, I did put a couple bunnies; a basket with flowers and some eggs on my table just to take a picture of the table cloth. Well, maybe, I AM ready for Easter after all. Thanks for the inspiration.

  46. Kelly I love how colorful your mantel is! So cute!

  47. Beautiful! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  48. Love, love, love your egg garland…featuring it tonight at the 2nd KOSO party! Thanks so much for linking up!

  49. Love your Easter and spring decor Kelly – cute way to make an egg garland! Pinned to the It’s a Spring Thing pinboard!

  50. I featured your lovely mantle today Kelly!!! Thanks so much for sharing your creatiity at “It’s a Spring Thing” linky party! Have a fabulous week ūüėÄ

  51. Did you decoupage the three patterned bunnies? They’re so cute and festive!

  52. I am glad to know that eggs come with holes in the ends now. I made a lengthy garland a dozen years ago but had to make holes by heating an ice pick . The smell was horrid, but the garland beautiful. I draped mine on the yard fence, scallops, and enjoyed it for several years. I think I will go on an egg hunt to the dollar store. Thanks for inspiring me.

  53. Did you glue the eggs together? Or do they just stay together on their own? I would be worried they would open.
    So adorable! Thanks for sharing!
