DIY Easter Egg Garland

Hello everyone!
While pulling out our Easter decorations, I discovered that Erik and I had quite the stash of plastic Easter eggs.

I usually add a few to glass jars for decoration but had no idea what to do with the rest...
After looking online for some inspiration I decided to turn them into a garland.

You will need:
Plastic Easter Eggs, Make Sure They Have Holes At Both Ends
String, I Used Bakers Twine
A Needle

Sort the eggs into colors and size.
Lay them out in the pattern you desire and measure the string against them, I added a few extra inches for safety.
Cut the string.
Tie a generous knot at one end and thread the other end through a needle.

I originally was going to thread the string through the holes by itself but found that the majority of the holes on my eggs were not completely punctured.
The needle helped break through them easily.
Open an egg and thread the needle through one of the bottom holes.
Thread the needle through the same top hole and close the egg.

Repeat until you have all of your eggs threaded.
Remove the needle from the thread and tie it off.
Cut off excess string.
Place where you desire.

I can't wait until the day Erik and I have a mantle but for now I make our entry way table work for our garlands.
It's the first thing you see when you walk into our house and I love how it showcases our holiday decorations. 

All together the garland took me less than half an hour to make and now I don't have a bag full of plastic eggs just taking up space in my basement.
Win, win.
Does the Easter Bunny hide plastic or real eggs at your house?

All my love,
