Make A Fun Easter Banner

I lied.

I haven't only been cleaning.

I made some Easter buntings,

or garlands,

or banners.

Whatever you call them.

I hung them up to photograph and then forgot about them.

Thinking about cleaning does that to me.

This is my favorite.

I was inspired by this Valentine banner

The one Carol@Art & Sand made for me. I LOVE it. 

I thought it would be cute with little eggs.

Want to make one?

Get your stuff:

Felt - I used the little squares from JoAnn Fabric
Embroidery Floss to match your felt
Pattern for tracing
Embroidery needle
Fiberfill stuffing
Crochet Thread - size 3 - for hanging 

Cut out the pattern
Trace 2 onto the felt for each egg or heart
Stitch the two pieces together using a blanket stitch (a tiny one so the stitching is not too obvious) Leave enough open space to insert the fiberfill
Finish closing the egg or heart with the blanket stitch
Cut the crochet thread to the desired length.
Thread into a long upholstery or needlepoint needle and sew through egg from side to side
Move the eggs around on the thread until it looks like you want it to

This is a blanket stitch -

When you're finished you have this cute little banner.

or bunting,

or garland.


It makes me smile.

Are you inspired?
