Easter Egg Garland and $350 Silhouette CAMEO {Giveaway} Closed

Surprise Me!

The Silhouette CAMEO comes in handy again!

After we dyed Easter eggs I cut out white vinyl letters using my Silhouette CAMEO.

How to make an Easter egg garland

Dye eggs and placed a vinyl letter on each egg.Take  a piece of floral wire through each egg. Bend over the top end. Next slip a long ribbon (long enough to hold all the eggs and also extra length for hanging) through the loop of wire. Pull the wire from the bottom until the ribbon is even with the top of the egg.

Bend up the bottom wire on the end and clip.

Space eggs out along the ribbon.  Now you have the perfect Easter Egg Garland

I hung mine across my entry mirror over a basket of flowers.

I love how it turned out!
