Polka Dot Ribbon Easter Eggs

Polka dot ribbon is so much fun and adds a boutique and vibrant style to any craft project. Using plastic Easter Eggs Polka Dot Ribbon Easter Eggsand Morex Polka Dot Ribbon-to-Bead I was able to create fun hanging polka-dot Easter Eggs that can be placed in a window, on a door knob, peg board, and Easter tree.

Ribbon-to-Bead comes with a wire needle attached to the end of the ribbon. The wire needle is perfect for threading the ribbon through beads or even Easter eggs!

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

1. Begin with plastic Easter Eggs using either a wood-burning tool or a large picture nail and lighter melt a hole into the top and bottom of the Easter Eggs.
