The banner I found at Hobby Lobby came with 12 pennants on it so I cut 5 of them off to make a shorter banner. You will want to lay down something under the pennants before you begin painting. I then took my spouncer and started making polka dots on the pennants. I used two different sizes of spouncers for this.
Once the paint was dry, I then glued the letters on the three center pennants leaving two on each side of HOP.
To hang the banner you simply tie a loop on each end of the jute twine.
To start the garland I tied a double knot in one end of my jute twine leaving a small loop on the end to use for hanging.
I found the eggs and the wood beads at Hobby Lobby. You don’t have to use these specific items but you will want to make sure the eggs you use have a string attached to them so they can hang from the garland. I did three wood beads and then one of the eggs for my pattern but you could certainly change it up for a different look.
Once I had all of my eggs and beads strung, I then tied a loop on this end just as I did on the other end of the garland. This turned out adorable! You could also add some tassels to each end of the garland if desired!
I chose to paint my egg with the color Pink Parfait by Apple Barrel. You could sure skip this step if you wanted, however, I wanted the edges of my egg to be painted.
Next, I began gluing my straws on. I started with blue and worked my way to the top using all three colors.
Once I had all of the straws glued on I took my scissors and cut around the shape of the egg.
To give it a more finished look, I glued rope twine around the edge. I also used this twine to make a hanger for the egg once I was finished.
The last thing I did was add a bow. I simply took two different pattern of ribbons and crossed them and used a piece of jute twin to secure the middle. I added a cute little egg embellishment to the center as well.
If you didn’t want to add the twine hanger you could also use this as a shelf sitter or accent piece for a tiered tray!
