Ok, I know Easter is over for this year, but I didn’t get a chance to share my pretty spring banner!
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies.

I originally planned this craft just for fun and to add some new decor to my Easter season, but it also turned out to be a perfect post for the #CraftyDestashChallenge! I had everything I needed for this craft! I raided the plastic eggs of Easters past, grabbed a skein of yarn, a can of spray paint from my stash, vinyl, and craft paper. Total cost – ZERO! (Obviously excluding when I bought all this stuff originally, ha!)
- Plastic Eggs
- Spray Paint
- Yarn or String
- Hot Glue Gun
- Craft Paper
- Cutting Machine
So my first step was to collect a bunch of similarly sized plastic eggs from our stash of Easter goodies.
I drilled tiny holes in each end of the eggs and then spray painted them. I had a skein of white yarn that I patiently threaded through the eggs. I spread them across a long line of yarn while spacing them to make room for the craft paper letters I created. I opted for an aqua and gold color scheme.
Design the phrase in your preferred font and cut out in vinyl. Layer on top of banner cut craft paper.
I dabbed a bit of hot glue on the ends of each egg to secure them to their space on the yarn, once I’d determined the correct spacing. The paper craft was also hot glued to the yarn once I had my letters adhered.

I very much enjoyed (and I’m still enjoying!) the pretty, bright, spring appeal of my easy spring banner. That’s saying A LOT, considering we had snow here today.
Hopefully my belated Easter spring banner will bring inspiration and joy to someone next year, in time for Easter! I still have my banner up, and I’m fervently hoping spring will show up and stay!!
