A Fun Way to Spruce up Your Easter Decor
3D banner that takes no time at all
With March behind us, I’m of course weeks behind getting all my Easter decorations completed. At some point I’m hoping to get on top of all of this and have everything ready weeks BEFORE! But who are we kidding?! After I made my St. Patrick’s Day banner (shown here), I knew I was in for many more holiday banners to come. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, I’m just saying stay tuned for banner madness each month. My 3D Easter Egg banner was inspired by all of the 3D banners and mobiles that are taking over the internet lately. This one was extremely quick and easy, and if you don’t count the two days worth of not getting anything done, it really only took me a couple hours to complete.
Spring inspired card stock of your choice (I chose 2 colors, you can do more if desired)
String or yarn of choice
Step One – Design and Cut
1. Create an egg design in Silhouette Design Studio
I created my egg from a design I already had in my library and increased the size to about 3″. You can easily make your own egg shape, or find one in the Design Store.
2. Multiply it enough to fit as many as you can on your paper
3. Send to Silhouette to cut
Step Two – Fold and Glue
1. Start by folding all your eggs in half with the pattern or color facing out as shown
2. Start by glueing two pieces together, back to back
3. Glue one more piece together, back to back
Step Three – Attach to String
1. Once you have all your eggs almost assembled, cut your string to desired length
2. Start by placing glue in the middle of the egg and place string down
3. Let the glued string dry a bit before you add your final egg piece to ensure it doesn’t move
4. Glue the final piece of the egg back to back, closing your 3D egg
Hang and Enjoy
I’m loving the mix of printed and solid color paper with the striped bakers twine. I didn’t notice it until I took a step back, but it looks like I have a purple theme taking place. While the 3D egg banner could stay all Spring, I’m already getting excited about making a new banner for May!
