Easy Hanging Easter Eggs with Burlap Ribbon, Lace, and Craft Foam

Our Oval Craft Foam Shapes are sold pre-cut and ready to decorate so all that needs trimming is the Burlap Ribbon and Lace.  Cut into 2″ pieces.  If doing this craft with a group, precut all the burlap and lace for easy assembly.  The burlap, lace, and buttons are attached to the craft foam with 1/2″ Glue Dots.  There is no mess and no drying time required!  Just press the glue dot onto the ribbon and attach to the oval craft foam!

Next, trim a small 2 1/4″ piece of Ribbon Lace (we used Robin Egg – Mint Green) and attach the lace in the middle of the burlap ribbon with another Glue Dot.  Press to secure.

Thread a short piece of embroidery floss through a button.  We used an embroidery needle.  Now you can attach the button one of two ways…  1)  Use another Glue Dot or 2)  Sew the button on with the embroidery floss.  We trimmed the embroidery floss to the same length as the lace and used a Glue Dot to secure.  This way the back of the Hanging Easter Egg doesn’t show any stitches.

Hole punch the top of the craft foam oval to hang the Easter Egg.

Thread a short piece of Natural Twine through the hole and tie the ends.
