An easter garland DYI with Urban jungle bloggers

I'm so happy to be back for the easter edition of Urban Jungle Bloggers. It was exactly a year ago that I joined for the first time, you can see it here, and what made me realize how a year had gone by, was to be able to see how much my plants have grown since then. You can see the one below is the tiny one I placed as Judith's place setting.

For this edition I wanted to do something very easy to make. If you follow this blog you probably know I'm a "bit" drawn to garlands. And of course this time my plant takes center stage, as well as the mini-chicks and my favorite chocolate of all.

These garlands, which you can make in no time, look perfect as a back drop for your easter brunch, as a craft idea for the children to make on easter day, or just make a few and send them to your pen pals.

And don't forget to bring out the chocolate eggs while you're doing this.


What you'll need is:

  • old book pages
  • scissors
  • washi-tape
  • watercolors
  • string



And then:
-Simply cut the shape of an egg, as many times as you want, and paint in your favorite spring colors, with your preferred patterns. 
-I made them all the same size, but of course you can make them any size.
-Once they have dried, simply attach them to the string with a long piece of washi-tape, on the back part.
-Voilà, nothing more, nothing less! Easter egg decorating the easy way.

I do hope you get in the mood for making garlands and eating lots, and lots of chocolate eggs!!

Urban Jungle Bloggers is a monthly series with the idea to get some green into our homes. Every month Judith and Igor invite bloggers to share ideas for creating an urban jungle through styling challenges, DIYs, green tips and tricks. Every month there is a different theme on the topic.
You can follow and get more inspiration on Pinterest and Facebook.


Have a lovely weekend ahead,
Giova

    1. Thanks so much Igor. I can't wait for all the "branches" of the plant to grow, so they go down like the one and only at the moment.

    1. Thank you so much!!! I never said I had no green fingers, a lot of people do say this though. The only plant I've never been successful with is rosemary, every time I bring one home, a week later its dry :(
