Egg Ornaments

Tools & 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. Secure the egg with a brass paper tack at the bottom.
  6. Tie a piece of string or twine around the paper tack at the top.
