$10 on the 10th

Hey Friends! It’s $10 on the 10th. I love it when fun and talented bloggers get together to share great ideas for under $10, don’t you? This months theme is Spring.  When I think of Spring, I think of birds, blooms, sunny days and Easter! With that in mind, I thought that it would be fun to make a Spring egg garland that I could use not only for Spring, but Easter as well. I love a multi-functional decor item for sure!

Spring Egg Garlan d

I actually made this garland a few weeks ago and I made it two different ways.

Today I’m sharing the painted egg version with you.

However, if you don’t like to paint, but love to craft with paper I have a video that is right up your alley.

You can see it here.

Supplies

For this Spring Egg Garland you will need:

Wooden egg cutouts. I found mine at the Dollar Tree – 6 for $1.00.

Paint

Paint brush

Twine

Scissors

Small Carrots – I found mine at the dollar tree – 6 for $1.00

Yarn

Pom pom maker or a piece of cardboard

1/4 inch ribbon

Hot glue and glue gun

wooden eggs

Base Coat Eggs

The first thing you will need to do is give your eggs a base coat of white paint.

Set aside to dry.

Egg designs

Design Your Eggs

Just like a girl scout, I like to be prepared.

I traced around my eggs and drew the designs that I would be painting on each egg.

Paint Eggs

Using acrylic paints, I painted my designs onto the eggs.

As you can see, I painted multiples to make more than one set of egg garlands to share as gifts.

Once they designs were complete, I glued small bows to the top of each egg.

pom pom maker

 

While my eggs were drying, I made 5 pom poms for my garland using a pom pom maker.

These are super easy to use, however you could also make poms using a piece of cardboard.

I purchased my pom maker here.

scrapbook paper eggs

Once my eggs were painted and my pom poms were made I tied them, as well as the carrots to the twine to make my garland.

I used jute twine to tie on the eggs and the carrots.

I left two of my pieces of yarn long on my pom to be able to tie it to the twine.

And this is what the finished painted Spring Egg garland looks like!

So how much did my garland cost?

Eggs – $1.00

Carrots – $1.00

Everything else I already had left over from another project.

So my  painted garland ended up costing me a grand total of $2.00 plus tax.

scrapbook paper eggs

My scrapbook garland ended up costing me a bit more.

I purchased new scrapbook paper to match my Spring/ Easter color scheme.

50% off at Hob Lob – 6 sheets of paper came in at $2.20 including tax.

Both garlands were under $5.00!

    1. Thank you Terrie! We really are enjoying our new spot to eat at the counter area. It’s a game changer for us.

    1. Thanks Ann. I have had so much fun making this garland that I made a few more for my sisters. Some craft projects you just enjoy making more than others and this was one of them.
