DIY Easter Garland

Ahh, Spring is in the air! The birds are chirping, the rain is falling (like, alot), and Easter is just around the corner.

What better way to celebrate this awesome season then sewing a new simple Spring craft?I can’t think of anything better!

So today, I’ve whipped together a fun and super easy Easter craft that involves some paper, scissors and of course, the sewing machine.

What You’ll Need:

  • Various Colors of Coordinating Spring-Themed Scrapbook Paper- 12″x12″
  • Coordating Sewing Thread
  • Paper for your Egg Stencil
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

First, create your egg stencil.  I just Googled “Easter egg” and found the image I wanted super fast. I made my eggs about 4″ tall. If this is the size you prefer,you’ll get about 4 per scrapbook page.

Trace your eggs onto the back of your scrapbook paper with a pencil and cut out your eggs with your scissors.  Easy peasy.Make sure your sewing machine is threaded properly with the color of thread you want, then pull about a foot of thread out of the machine before you start sewing. You can use this extra thread to hang your garland wherever your heart desires!

Set your machine to the widest straight stitch possible. Then, take your first paper egg and stick it under your sewing foot, making sure it’s centered. Sew it completely down the middle.

Once you have it sewn, pull the egg out, and make some slack before you sew the next egg. Pretty soon, you’ll have an egg train. Ha!

See? Choo choo!

Repeat this until you have reached your desired garland length, snip the end of your thread, then hang your new Easter decor for all to see! My garland ended up being a little too long, so I just snipped off the last egg with my scissors. Love it!

I thought this was easy and turned out so cute! After I made these, I wanted to sew some using paper Easter bunnies, so I might just do that soon. Wouldn’t that be cute?

Give this craft a try and let me know what you think? Happy Spring and Happy Sewing!
