Make This: Easter Egg + Hydrangea DIY Garland

Spring DIY // Easter Egg + Hydrangea Garland

It may be a tiny bit early to start the Easter train, but no matter how hard I try, I just cannot get into St Patrick’s Day DIYs this year (or any year, really). I’m not the only one that feels this way, am I?

So, on to Easter I go…

A long time ago I made this spring garland using pastel Easter eggs and fresh hydrangeas. But I never actually shared it here on the blog. You may remember it from Project Wedding last year. It’s super easy and looks much more fancy than it really is. Which, in my opinion, is a good combo.

Here’s how to make your own…

How to make a unique Easter garland

Pretty easy, right? You could whip up one of these garlands in less than 30 minutes. Just use eggs that have already been blown, so they’re hollow (or pick up some decorative eggs from the craft store) and you’re good to go.

Tie it all together by using a couple of the extra eggs as a super simple cake topper. And now you’re cake coordinates with your garland. Skip the flowers on the cake if it’s feeling too matchy-matchy.

So what do you think? Have you started planning Easter DIYs yet? Or am I just insane? You can tell me. I can take it.

Thanks Laura. I’m ready for spring too. Even in Florida, it was a pretty cold winter, for the most part.

Beautiful pastels! And it gives me a reason to dye some eggs for Easter this year.
