Easter Egg Necklace




By Noreen Doll.

After you’ve colored all your Easter eggs, an Easter egg necklace is a fun way to use some of them.

To make the necklace you need to use empty colored eggs that you’ve blown the contents out of.

An Easter egg necklace is a perfect project for a little girl. Its fun to create, and then can be worn. It also looks pretty hanging from a hook or nail, or around a bed post.

How to Make an Easter Egg Necklace.

1. Make a pattern for leaves to put between the eggs on the necklace.

Trace the pattern onto cardboard and cut it out.

2. Use the cardboard pattern to trace several green leaves.

Cut them out.

Poke or punch holes in the center of the leaves. If using a punch, use one no larger than 1/8 inch.

3. Cut a length of twine or yarn that is at least 1 yard long.

4. Make a long needle to thread the twine through the eggs using a paperclip or length of wire.

5. Thread one end of the twine through the eye of the needle you made, and then thread one egg onto the twine.

Push the needle through the smaller hole in the egg first, and it’s easier to find the hole in the other end of the egg as you push the needle through it.

6. Slide 1 leaf onto the twine up next to the egg.

7. Alternate an egg and a leaf until you have 8 or 9 eggs on the twine.

8. Tie the ends together in a nice bow.

Don’t make the eggs go all the way around, as we discovered that leaning back in a chair while wearing the necklace crushes the eggs in back. And results in tears.

Tips.

Instead of leaves, you can make a flower pattern and cut colorful flowers to string between the eggs. However, colored flowers with colored eggs can be too busy.

Twine is good for stringing because it is sturdy, and ties very nicely into a bow that doesn’t slip out easily.

And adults always need to be handy whenever anything sharp or pointed is used by a child.

  14. Yes. First we had fun blowing the eggs, then dying them, and finally stringing them into necklaces. We loved the necklaces, but had a few tears when someone leaned back in a chair and crushed a few of the eggs! Fortunately, we had extra eggs and were able to replace the broken ones.

  15. I think that’s pretty, my granddaughter will love that. what did you use for the eggs?

  16. I used real eggs. We blow out the eggs, color them and string them. See the tutorial above. Have fun with it!

  17. This is wonderful! Thank you for sharing with us at Brag About It!
