What Do You Need To Make This Easter Garland
Plastic Eggs – Any colors or style work. You just want plastic Easter eggs you can open and then press together.
Fishing Line – This doesn’t have to be any special kind. Just reach for the cheapest as the eggs are very light and won’t weigh it down.
Long Upholstery Needle – You can find this at a craft store or shop online. You might find that even Target or Walmart carry this type of needle.
5/8″ Ribbon – Feel free to use whatever color of ribbon you want. I wanted a fun color to patch the eggs for this Easter themed garland. I used a handful of colors to help create more dimension.
Does Any Color of Ribbon Work
Absolutely! You can use any colors you want. The one thing I found is the thicker ribbon really works great. Or piece together a handful of smaller pieces of ribbon. This will help add a bit more texture. I found the 5/8″ worked perfect.
Can I Use Thread Instead of Fishing Line?
If you don’t want to use a fishing line you can use a thread like you would sew with. I like the fishing line as it was clear and really helps to hide the string portion of the garland. Feel free to swap it out if you have thread on hand and don’t want to buy fishing line.
