Easter Ribbon Eggs

 Easter Ribbon Eggs-

With Easter just around the corner I thought it would be fun to make some simple decorations. This craft for making Easter Ribbon Eggs is easy enough you can have children join in the fun. Of course you’ll want to leave the hot gluing to the grown ups.

I regret I didn’t take more photos. Sorry. It’s difficult to hold your project and take a photo at the same time, giggle.

What you need

Styrofoam eggs I used eggs 3 /12 inch eggs ( from your local craft shop)

Ribbon (your choice) I used about 2 ½ yards for each egg

Craft Glue (not hot glue)


Embellishments, I used rick rack, lace, beads, little embroidered flowers, etc.)

Straight pin

Lets Make It!

Start by cutting a piece of ribbon about 3 times the length (wrapped end to end) of your egg.

Put a drop of glue on the end of the egg.

Place the ribbon end onto the dot of glue and secure with a straight pin.

Begin wrapping your egg, by drawing a line of glue and laying your ribbon onto the glue line.

Continue this process as you wrap your egg laying each piece of ribbon slightly over the other.

You will need to cut new strips of ribbon as you continue on. You do not need to keep adding straight pins.

If you’d like to add a ribbon loop for hanging (I did). Add your loop about half way through the wrapping process, by extending your ribbon out past the egg end of the egg.

Fold the hanging ribbon back on itself and add a drop of glue and secure with a straight pin.

Then continue wrapping. After it’s completely wrapped let dry.

Select your embellishments. Add ribbon, lace etc. to your heart’s content.

 Will you give this project a try?
