I was decorating for Easter a few weeks ago, and I had all these foam eggs. At first I was going to hang them in various places in the kitchen, but then I got this fun idea to turn the eggs into a banner.
This is a very easy and inexpensive project, and I was really pleased with how it turned out. And it just happened to go great with this "Happy Easter" banner I already had.
What you need:
Foam Egg Sheets
You should be able to find the foam egg sheets at Wal-Mart, a craft store, or possibly a dollar store. The holes were already punched in these, but you can always use a punch that works with foam if you can't find any sheets like these.
Cut your ribbon in to 6-8 inch pieces. You could actually go shorter with the ribbon, but I like the look of the longer ribbon. Loop the ribbon through the holes of two foam sheets. Tie the ribbon into a knot. Keep adding eggs in the same way until you have the desired length. On each end of the banner, take a piece of ribbon and loop it through a hole; tie a knot. (These ribbons on the end will be used for hanging.) To give the ends a more cute and "finished" look, take a second ribbon and loop it through the hole, but this time tie the ribbon in to a bow.
Another thing to consider is adding additional ribbons. I thought about tying additional ribbons through the bottom wholes or tying ribbons through the middle of the eggs, but in the end I just decided to keep it simple.
