I’ve realized along the way that I’m not much of a pastel fan. I’m into either bright, bold colors or calm neutrals. This causes a problem once Easter decorating season comes along, as most decorations fall into the pastel color scheme. With a few fat quarters of your favorite, brightly colored fabrics, you can create a Fabric Easter Egg Bunting that will catch the eye!
Since we’re living somewhere that infuses Spring greenery and blossoms into their Easter decorations, I thought I’d jazz things up by making an Easter bunting that compliments our Easter Tree .
I downloaded a free Easter egg template from here and set to work tracing and cutting egg shapes from my stash (2 of each fabric).
I used heavyweight Pellon (affiliate link) in between the fabric layers to stiffen things up. And since I’m using this month to purge some of my stash along with Robin, I used a store bought package of Oyster colored bias binding, that I already had but you can easily make your own to match your color scheme.
After layering and center pinning my eggs, I sewed each using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. I trimmed up the edges a bit, sandwiched and pinned them into my binding strip, and sewed down the edge of the binding strip to close it up. This DIY project took less than 30 minutes but adds so much to the mantel.
Easter is one of those holidays for which you just never know what the weather will be. It could be bright and sunny or overcast and dreary, but the right Easter decorations are sure to liven things up, no matter the weather. It’s as easy as inserting just a little touch of color to brighten things up around the house.
