Easter Crafting Craziness – Egg Ornaments

I love to decorate for the holidays. I have 3 small fake cedar trunk trees that I leave up all year and decorate for the various holidays. It drives Mr. Steam nuts! And now the Mini-Steams have caught the holiday decorating bug. Tee hee!

The kids wanted to decorate their trees for Easter, but I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on Easter ornaments.

At the craft store I found these small plastic eggs 24 for $0.60! So I got one bag for each of the Mini-Steams. They were super simple to make.

  1. Drill a small hole in the end of the each egg
  2. Cut about 7″ of 1/4″ ribbon. I matched the ribbon to the egg color, but you could use all one color.
  3. Tie a square knot in the ribbon
  4. Push the ribbon through the hole. I used a blunt skewer to help push the ribbon through.

DONE! Told you it was easy!!! They didn’t take to long either. It took me about 1 hr to drill and tie all 48 ornaments.

The kids are thrilled with how they turned out.
