Easter Egg Ornaments

Remember this Easter Tree? Well, I have some fun Easter Egg Ornament ideas for you! They're inexpensive, cute and your kiddos will love to help!

What you will need:
  • 2-3 different colored or patterned Easter scrapbook paper, or just whatever you may have on hand.
  • 5-6 styrofoam eggs (I found these at my local craft supply store w/the other styrofoam stuff)
  • Mod Podge
  • paint brush
  • spring colored yarn
  • straight pins
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • faux bird (optional)

1. Have your cute kids start by ripping up the colorful Easter paper into tiny pieces (the smaller the better).

2. Apply Mod Podge to the top part of the egg with a paint brush and then have your kids put their small pieces of paper on the Mod Podged part. Then brush the top of the paper with Mod Podge and allow to dry. When dry, Mod Podge the other side of the egg and apply more paper, followed by the Mod Podge over the paper. Allow to dry.

3. For the yarn eggs, Mod Podge half of the egg and start wrapping the yarn around the egg, starting in the center. When you get to the end of the egg, cut the yarn and allow egg to dry. When dry, Mod Podge the other side of the egg and wrap yarn, starting in the center. Cut the yarn and allow to dry.

4. Now you should have an array of fun egg ornaments of different colors and textures.

5. Cut 6" pieces or ribbon for all of your eggs. Make a loop with the ribbon and stick the straight pin through the ribbon and then through the styrofoam egg.

6. There ya have it.

I put some of the loops at the top of the eggs and some of them at the bottom of the eggs, because I wanted them to be hanging different ways on the tree. See above picture.

Love the eggs! And I totally use the shoe holder in my bathroom for all of my accessories. Great idea!
