Hello my name is Amy and I blog at amylanham.com. I love decorating for all the holidays, but sometimes it’s hard to find easy Easter holiday decorations.
That’s why I created this super simple Easter egg banner. It’s really easy to make, and can be completely customized to match with your house or different themes for the holiday.

Easter Egg Garland Tips:
How many different papers do i need?
I would recommend having at least 6-8 coordinating papers. Have fun browsing the scrapbook paper aisle and get as much paper as you want. The more paper you use, the better it will turn out!
The project can be made with less, but I think that the fun of this project is that not all the eggs match. If you prefer matching, then you would just need one or two coordinating colors.
What if I don’t have a cricut?
Find an image of an egg, or just freehand draw one. Then use that image to cut out the coordinating papers. Try to make sure the eggs are cut as close to the same size as possible. This is easier with a Cricut, but not impossible by hand.
The rest of the steps after cutting are exactly the same.
Where should I hang my garland?
This is the fun part! Anywhere you want. It would look really cute hanging on the front door above a wreath. Can be hung on the mantel or on a picture ledge.
I also think it would look beautiful at the centerpiece to a long table. So many ideas. No matter where you put it, it’s going to look great!
The Eggs keep flopping forward when I try to hang it, what should I do?
This is because the eggs are a little top heavy. If you find they are too heavy and won’t stay put when you try to hang them there are a couple options.
- Tape the eggs individually to the wall
- Create each egg twice and attach the 2 together, one in the front and one in the back. So instead of each egg having 2 pieces of paper, they would have 4.
