Hi, friends! Even though Easter is really less thanย 2 weeks away, I’m just now doing a little Easter craft. I don’t normally do any decorating for Easter, but I wanted a cute little banner that I could hang up over my fireplace. This little banner is seriously SO quick, and super easy! I whipped it out while Jade napped. A win in my book!

Materials for Easter Banner:

  • Foam Easter eggs (I found this pack at the Dollar Store!)
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Fishing line/thread
  • Letter stencils
  • Scissors
  • Needle (not pictured)
  • Sharpie (not pictured)
  • Tape (not pictured)

While I was perusing around the Dollar Store last week trying to find bins so I could organize my linen closet, I came across these adorable little glitter Easter eggs. I knew I needed to do somethingย with them, so I brought them home with me. They were so perfect for this little banner!

First, I chose some pretty scrapbook paper and cut out a banner shape. I didn’t do any fancy measuring, I just used my letter stencil size as a guide for how big I wanted each banner, and used a ruler to draw the straight lines. I used my first banner as a “stencil” to trace on the other 5 I needed.

SONY DSCI then used my letter stencils to stencil the letters for “Easter” on each banner. I just held the stencil down really tight so it wouldn’t move and used my Sharpie to draw the letters.

SONY DSCTo add the foam Easter eggs, I started by threading and tying some fishing wire onto my needle.

SONY DSCI then just “threaded” on the foam eggs.ย 

SONY DSCIย threaded on 6 eggs to start, and then added my “E” letter banner. You could easily use clothespins to attach the banners to the fishing wire, but I didn’t have any small ones on hand so I just flipped the banner over and taped on the fishing line at the top.

SONY DSCI continued on with each letter banner, threading on 6 eggs, then taping the next letter on.

Super easy, right? I just used a little gold washi tape to hang it up over my fireplace!

SONY DSCIt’s the perfect simple Easter decoration that cost me $1, since I had everything but the foam eggs! I dig cheap decor. ๐Ÿ™‚

SONY DSCHope you all have a great rest of the week!
