Kids Easter Crafts: Paint Chip Easter Egg Garland

There’s something so cool about paint chips… maybe it’s the thrill of standing in a Home Depot collecting your favorite colors and not having to pay for them! You may have also accumulated a bunch of them over the years as well. I personally think this one of the prettiest and easiest kids easter crafts out there, and very customizable. After one paint chip craft you’ll look for other DIY projects!

You’ll Need

  • Pencil
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • 30 large paint chips in various spring colors
  • 1/8″ hole punch
  • Cotton household twine or embroidery thread
  • Clear tape

Kids Easter Crafts


  1. Make your template by drawing a 2″ to 3″ tall egg shape on a piece of cardboard and cut it out.
  2. Place your template over each paint chip, centering it so white line between chip colors runs across midpoint of egg.
  3. Trace around template, cut out and repeat for the rest of the eggs.
  4. Use hole punch to make two holes, centered and about 3/8″ apart, ½” from top of each egg shape.
  5. Cut a length of thread about 5′ long. Tie a knot about 6″ from one end. Working on other end, wrap a 1″-long strip of tape around end, like a shoelace tip.
  6. Thread taped end of twine through holes of a paper egg, from back to front, then front to back.
  7. Pull egg carefully toward knot. Thread all eggs in this way, arranging them to slightly overlap.
  8. Tie knot at end and hang your beautiful garland with tape.
