You know I love my garland for every season and holiday! Here are two ways to make beautiful Easter themed garland for about $10 each.
How I Made TWO Easter Garlands With Cheap Eggs!
For the first one I got two bags of robin eggs from Michael's Craft store made from styrofoam.
I used a small screw driver to pock holes through the styrofoam eggs.
I threaded a doll needle with thick thread and stung them all together!
I think it came out absolutely beautiful on my mantle!
For the 2nd garland, I got a 1/2 dozen pack of plastic eggs from the Dollar Tree. They already had a hole on one side so I drilled a hole on the other.
The secret is that you need to start with the smallest drill bit and go up until you get to a larger hole. If you start with a larger bit it will break the plastic.
I got these tassels form Amazon and I already had some large beads from a previous project so I just strung on a tassel then a bead then the egg as a "second bead", and finally another wooden bead then fastened it off!
Both of these projects were easy and could be a fun craft to do with kids.

If you want to use actual plastic eggs, rather than the styrofoam ones, cover the area you are going to drill with masking tape on both sides and use a lower speed. It will keep the plastic from shattering. I learned that trick MANY years ago when dating a musician. I used to make jewelry out of guitar picks.
