Easter Egg Garland

Here's what you need!

16 wooden football/egg shapes (Can get from Michael's)
4-5 sheets of scrapbook paper (Can use scraps in spring colors from random companies)
9 yards of spring ribbon
Alphabet stickers or stamps (to spell Happy Easter)
Sandpaper & Ink square or antiqued Ink pad
Purple gel pen (to outline the alphabet stickers)
Crop-a-Dile (to punch holes in the wooden eggs) or small drill bit
Modge Podge Matte
Cross Metal Accent
First adhere your egg onto a sheet of paper, placed upside down. This way you can cut the egg out of the paper, rather than trace & cut. This saves tons of time! Cut out all of your eggs (don't worry about being perfect - you will be sanding the edges next).
Next sand & ink all the edges of your eggs.
After you ink the edges, allow them to dry a few minutes before handling them.
Next, line up your garland in the order you would like to see the patterns so that you do not end up with any matching papers next to one another.
Add the alphabet stickers or stamps or other embellishments. Outline stickers with gel pen in contrasting color to make them stand out.
Paint eggs with Modge Podge to seal & protect.
Punch holes into the sides of each egg with the Crop-a-Dile tool or another heavy duty hole punch, or drill with a small drill bit
Cut ribbons into 4" lengths and tie eggs together.
Hang & enjoy this beautiful Easter season!
