Fun and Easy Easter Egg Garland Craft

Easter snuck up on me again this year! I’ve been busy this week gathering supplies for our family Easter basket and making plans.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! I love everything about it, Spring is here, warmer weather is coming, bright colors and flowers are beginning to show up, the birds are singing when you wake up & the very reason why life is good is being celebrated!

My Lord and Savior died for me (and you!) but He didn’t stay dead, He rose again!! And that my friends is something to celebrate!!

I love, love, love to do fun crafts and activities with my kids to prepare for the holiday! Now, I obviously love to do activities that focus on the Lord and teach my children more about this great holiday, but I also enjoy doing some crafts that are just for fun!

One day last week we made some Easter Egg Garland. My husband said he remembers doing this craft when he was younger and thought it would be fun to pass on the tradition.

Supplies Needed

You simply need some Embroidery Floss, Liquid Starch, small balloons, and flour. I purchased my floss & starch from Amazon but you should also be able to find them in any craft store.

How To Make Them

Once you gather your supplies mix 1 cup of liquid starch with 1/2 cup of flour really well!

liquid starch and flour mixed together in a large glass measuring cup.

Once it’s mixed well, choose the color of embroidery floss you would like to use first and dip it in the liquid. It works best if you kind of twirl the floss into the liquid in a circle instead of just plopping it in so it doesn’t get tangled.

When all the floss is wet take it and gently wrap it around a small balloon. While you are wrapping you should also be swiping the excess water & starch mixture off of the floss.

Once your balloon is wrapped lay it flat for several hours to dry. You will use one full strand of floss per balloon.

After at least 4 hours feel the balloon and if all of your floss is dry and stiff you can pop your balloon. Then take another pack of floss to string your little eggs. It’s as simple as that!
