DIY Easter Garland

With Easter quickly approaching, and so little time to prepare, why not make some decorative Easter Garlands? They’re simple to make – and easy on the budget! DIY Depot will show you how:

You will need:

  • Some string- plain or colourful
  • A punch
  • Scissors
  • Tester paint cards (paint swatches) available at any DIY Depot
  • Adhesive putty


  1. Cut the paint tester pieces into Easter-themed shapes – bunnies or eggs fit the theme perfectly.
  2. Next, you’ll have to punch a hole at the top of your cutouts. Make sure it is centered in an ideal place, so that the shapes hang straight.
  3. Now, cut some string to a measurement of your choosing. String the cutouts through the holes that you’ve punched.
  4. Finally, you can adhesive putty your decorative garland up just in time for Easter!


If you want to take it a step further, you could turn this garland into a backdrop for your Easter photographs! Just add a punch hole to the bottom of each cutout and string some more shapes downward!
