Quick Last Minute Easter Garland

2 Materials
1 Hour
I needed some last minute Easter color for the my front door. I wanted something in pastel colors. Nothing fancy, but simple decor that was quick, easy and wouldn't break the bank.

When I came across these plastic pastel eggs at 
Walmart for $1.98 a bag - 48 regular size or 24 large size - 
I knew I could do something fun with them.
I bought 1 of each.

You'll need the plastic eggs, some string and ribbon (optional).
The amount of eggs and lengths of string and ribbon will depend on how long you want them.

These eggs already had holes in each end which made them easy to string together. I didn't even need a needle.

Since I wanted some ribbon dangling off each end.
 I searched my stash and found pastel green, aqua, and lavender.
I cut 4 lengths of each color about 10'' long.
I opened what would be the 1st egg of the garland, strung the string through the hole and tied it to the ribbons that were strung through the opposite half of the egg's hole then closed it and continued threading on the rest of the eggs. 

I made 2 garlands, one with the regular size eggs and one with the larger eggs.
Both had the ribbon ends, which is your preference whether or not you'd like them to add them or not.
Then hang wherever you'd like a little more Easter fun.

I hung the regular size egg garland above my front door, adding some green curling ribbon I had in the center.

The large size egg garland went above the entrance of the arbor.
Again adding curling ribbon I found in my stash in the center,
 this time purple.

There ya have it, quick, easy peasy and inexpensive!
What could be better?
Easy enough the kiddos could make them!
