Running low on time and need some quick holiday décor? These 3D Easter egg ornaments are super simple to make, require minimal supplies, and can even be a fun project for kids!
Start by choosing several colors of pastel cardstock and some coordinating patterned paper for each (I am loving all things plaid right now!). My favorites are a mix of Curious Metallic and Stardream Metallic cardstocks (Rose Quartz, Lime, Lagoon, Amethyst, and Poison Ivory from left to right) because they’re thick and shimmery, making for some beautiful and sturdy ornaments.
Cut equal numbers of small egg shapes out of each cardstock and the matching patterned paper. Here I’ve used my Silhouette to cut four eggs out of each cardstock and four eggs out of its matching plaid paper, but you can cut the eggs with a manual die-cutting machine or by hand too. Cutting more shapes will yield a “fuller” egg, but you can even cut as few as two of each if desired.
Score each egg shape down the center and crease the fold to allow for easier assembly and more evenly-shaped ornaments. My eggs are about 2.25″ wide, so I scored each at around 1.125″.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy holiday décor project and thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to visit the CutCardStock store to purchase any of the products showcased today, and if you liked this project, please leave a comment below!
