DIY Paint Chip Easter Garland

Sometimes the most impactful decorations are the simplest to create, as the site Modern Parents, Messy Kids proves with this DIY Easter Garland. I love how the two-tone shades give the effect of dip-dyed eggs.

All it takes to string together this colourful garland is a stack of paint chips (chances are you already have a few kicking around your home) and a template in the shape of an egg.

Just trace the shape on the back of the paint chip, cut it out, hole punch the top and thread them on a piece of twine or ribbon. This is a wonderful project the whole family can work on together – from little hands to old souls.

If your decor is mostly neutral, this garland will be a the perfect hit of spring colour and the uncomplicated styling makes it work with other seasonal decorations. Best of all, this project re-purposes materials that may otherwise be headed for the trash – a great way to honour Earth Day too.
