Easter is on the way!
Easter brings so many awesome things with it. For one, it means Spring is on the way. Easter comes with other things we love like jelly beans, marshmallow Peeps, chocolate bunnies, and best of all, the colorful dyed eggs!
Whether you like eggs dyed with vibrant hues or soft pastels, the bright and beautiful colors are so fun. Kids love that they can personalize each egg using different color dyes and patterns. The egg dying process is exciting for the whole family to do together.
With all the colors of dyed eggs, it’s easy to get inspired for Easter crafts. With that in mind, we created the DIY Watercolor Easter Egg Garland craft.
This craft brings all the rich colors of dyed Easter eggs into your home. Just like dying easter eggs, your family can personalize each paper egg of the garland using different watercolors and patterns. You can make your Watercolor Easter Egg Garland any size so that it fits the space that you want to hang it.
Whenever you walk past your colorful hanging Watercolor Easter Egg Garland, you’ll smile. And think of Spring.
