Easter Egg Garland

The Tiny FunnelThis year’s Easter garland is brought to you by recycled milk and water jugs. I really liked working with the milk container plastic at Christmas and decided to use it for this project. It’s easy to cut, translucent and uses something we already have.


The Tiny Funnel

Materials:
  • Water, milk or juice jug
  • Washi tape
  • Oval template (or you can use a punch if you have one)
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Thick needle with a sharp point
  • Cord (not twisted string)

  1. Cut the panels from a container- clean any packaging off (oil and baking soda or Goo Gone).
  2. Trace the oval onto the plastic and cut the shape out (or use the punch).
  3. Add washi tape strips to the oval.
  4. Pre-pierce 2 holes near the top of the "egg" with a thick sharp needle.
  5. Then add the cord through the holes (yes, pierce first then string).
The cord (left) doesn't unravel like string (right).

You could also string the eggs individually to hang on a tree or in a window.
