I love everything about spring, especially the fact that the hens begin laying again! Which means eggs to turn into projects like a DIY egg garland. This is such a fun and easy spring project that you can do by yourself or get the kids involved in it.
We’ve made these DIY egg garlands a couple of times, and I’m always surprised by how gorgeous the garland turns out. It’s especially fun if you have rainbow layers like we do because then you can mix up the colors in your garland. My favorites to use are blue and green eggs. You can also dye eggs to achieve the colors you want. Or reach out to local small farms to see if they have any.

How To Make A DIY Egg Garland
Step 1: Poke a hole at each end of the egg and use grandma’s method of blowing eggs – by putting her lips on one end of the egg and blowing- or my method -sticking a straw over one of the holes and blowing-.
Step 2: Wash the eggs thoroughly and allow to dry.
Step 3: Tie a knot in one end of the string, you want it big enough that the egg won’t slip over it.

Step 4: Gently push the string through both holes in the egg, continue adding eggs until you reach your desired length. Tie another knot in the string and you are done.
