This Easter try something new…Hanging Easter Eggs with Burlap Ribbon and Twine. Made from Craft Foam Ovals and embellished with just a few simple craft supplies, these Easter Eggs are both simple and adorable! Hang these eggs on an Easter Tree or a branch from the yard to create a unique centerpiece for your table. These would also make great tags or place setting “eggs”. Very simple to make with very little cutting required and no drying time when using Glue Dots to attach the burlap ribbon to the craft foam. Try making something new this Easter!
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!
Here are a few easy step-by-step instructions:
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.
Trim any excess floss to the same length as the lace.
Next, with a Single Hole Punch (a paper one will work for the craft foam) punch a 1/4″ hole at the top of the foam shape.
Thread a short piece of Natural Twine through the hole and tie the ends.
These Hanging Easter Eggs make a great addition to an Easter Tree or any branch in a vase or container. Try this as an Easter centerpiece on your table! Use for marking place seatings or tags for Easter Gifts. Yes, they can be personalized with Sharpie Markers (or any permanent markers)!
