Salt Dough Easter Egg Garland

Easter is only a few days away!

If you need an easy decor idea, that will turn out super cute and keep the kids busy! I’ve got the perfect one for you!

We used a super easy basic salt dough recipe to make this garland. The kids had lots of fun decorating the “Easter eggs” and it turned into my new favorite piece of Easter decor, I know I’ll treasure as the kids grow up!

Salt dough Easter garland

First we started with the salt dough recipe :

  • 1 Cup of Flour
  • 1/2 Cup salt
  • 1/2 Cup water

*preheat oven to 250

Mix all of your ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Knead your dough by hand for a few minutes to make it smoother. Roll it out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. And cut out your desired shapes.

Poke a hole or two in the top of each egg (if making a garland) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 2 hours and let cool completely.

We used acrylic paints to decorate our eggs (and one bunny) we strung our eggs together with a piece of ribbon and voila!

(I found poking two holes in the top instead of one, helped the shapes stay straight once hung.)
