Let's do what we love, and a lot of it!

Easter is around the corner and it’s time to decorate, so let’s make Easter Egg Garland!

I love to decorate for the holidays, but decorations have become so expensive. Even the stores I used to think were affordable have upped their prices.

So making my own decorations became a thing. It would be impossible to find Easter garland for $5, trust me! All supplies used came from The Dollar Tree, but rest assured, yarn is everywhere and you may just have some at home.


  • Yarn
  • Cardboard box
  • FREE printable


1. Download and print your free printable. Cut out the amount of eggs you’d like to use.

2. Grab a box and cut off a side. I used an Amazon box from the garage.

3. Using the printable as a stencil, trace the egg shape onto the box. I used 8 eggs for my finished garland.

4. Cut out all the eggs. I ended up using a box cutter, it was much easier than scissors. Just be very careful, always cut away from you and do not cut on an important surface. I used another side of the remaining box to cut on.

5. I found this fuzzy yarn at Dollar Tree, making this project $5. You can use any yarn you’d like! Grab your favorite and hold the beginning piece on the middle on the egg, and wrap around the egg.

6. Keep wrapping until the cardboard is covered in yarn. I cut the yarn and tied it in a knot on the back. You can also dot it with hot glue to hold it.

7. Cover all your eggs in yarn. I did 2 eggs of each color making 8 total. I had these beads on hand from Dollar Tree that I used in between each egg.

8. This is not necessary, but it did give it a finishing touch. Just knot your string, add 3 beads, knot again and add a yarn egg. Continue this process until the garland is to your size preference.
