Although Easter is not as decorative as Christmas, you can always make things a bit more festive with some DIY decorations around your house. Today I’m going to show you how to create some easy and fun egg decorations using my favorite Pink Paislee supplies.
I really love the bright and playful colors of the Oh My Heart collection so that’s what I mostly used throughout the project. I started by cutting oval shapes with my Silhouette in three different sizes. If you don’t have a die cutting machine you can just fussy cut them on your own. The shape is very simple and the final project is forgiving to any cutting imperfections.
Once you have all your pieces cut, fold them in half along the long side then adhere them one next to the other while they are still folded. You can use as many pieces as you want depending on how many flaps you want on your eggs. I used 5-6 in mine to include as many patterns as possible.
Before you stick the two edges together to “close” the egg, add some string or thread so you can hang them. I left a small piece of thread at the bottom to add some embellishments and secured it with some hot glue.
I used a few different products to embellish each of my eggs. For the smallest one I used some of the adorable Take Me Away buttons above and below the egg.
For the next one I created a cluster with a flower and some leaves I fussy cut out of a beautiful floral paper. At the bottom I paired two chipboard hearts from the Oh My Heart collection.
For my biggest egg I used a suede bow from the Take Me Away collection with a flower to embellish the top part and one of the gorgeous heart charms from the Oh My Heart collection to jazz up the bottom.
It’s a really fun and quick project to make and it’s great to use up any paper scraps you don’t want to throw away. You can embellish your eggs with whatever bits you want and even add messages in the flaps!
