When I was browsing the Ballard Designs website a few weeks ago for inspiration for the Rock Your Knockoff Tour, I saw the perfect Easter project.  I chose something else for my knockoff but I still planned to make this project because I knew I could recreate it for much less than the BD price.  I saved this image onto my laptop, but unfortunately now I can’t find the ornaments on their website.  BOO.

I ended up making an Easter egg garland instead of ornaments.  Here’s how I made it:

Then I ran a jute string through the holes that were already on top of the eggs and hung it on my hutch.  It’s all decked out for Easter and spring, although the rest of my living room and kitchen will be filled with superhero decor for my boys’ birthday party this weekend!

I bought the sequin bunny from the dollar section at Target last year.

These are the embellished eggs and nest I made last spring.

      Thank you so much Michele! 🙂 I used to not decorate for spring, but it’s my favorite season so it makes sense to bring it inside too!
