Egg Ornamnets

These hanging egg ornaments are fun to customize, easy to make, and can be strung from either a tree or the ceiling. Make them ahead of time as part of your celebration's decor, or set up a craft station during the party so kids can make their own.

Tools and Materials

  • Craft paper in varying colors
  • Scissors
  • Brass paper tacks
  • String or twine

Making the Ornaments

1. Cut craft paper into strips that are 8" long and 1/4" wide.

2. Cut a few more strips in a zigzag pattern (also 8" long and roughly 1/4" wide).

3. Bend one of the paper strips so the ends meet to create an egg shape.

4. Fasten together the two ends using a brass paper tack.

5. Repeat steps 3–4 until you've completed an entire egg, using varying designs of paper. To secure the egg, add a brass paper tack on the bottom. (There should be only one brass tack at the top.)

6. Attach a piece of string or twine by tying it around the paper tack at the top.
