This DIY paint chip Easter egg banner is a fun holiday craft the entire family will love! Plus it’s adorable for the home and is inexpensive!
My husband is a painting contractor by trade (and my go to DIY genius here on the blog!)
We are as different as night and day but we both like to think outside the box when it comes to our home.
He’s all about efficiency and I’m all about flexing my creative muscles. But you know? Somehow it all works out and we’re still married after 34 years!
Family is immensely important to both of us and we homeschooled for 23 years. That’s a lot of family togetherness!
One of my favorite annual activities with the kids was Easter Resurrection Cookies. They tasted amazing and my children got to experience the Easter story in a hands on way. Win win!
Easter is also the perfect time for an easy craft that’s fun for creating memories as a family. Or if your kids are adults like mine, grab a grandkid or neighbor friend. Kids love to help and the activity is all about family and memory making.
Ok, it was about survival many days, but let’s pick and choose those memories, ok?
I love repurposing and using a few bright and colorful paint chips is right up my alley (and is a nod to my uber talented hubby!)

Paint chips (you may have some on hand but if not this is a great place to buy them!)
Oval printable (included)
Piece of thick cardboard
String, thread or jute
Silver Bows or embellishment of some kind
Step 1. Use my free oval printable and print on heavy cardstock. I found this size works well with the larger paint chip cards.
Step 2. Cut out one oval to use as a template.
Step 3. Glue oval shape onto thick cardboard.
Step 4. Cut out oval and use as template to trace onto each paint chip.
Step 5. Use as many paint chips as needed to create the size banner you desire.
Step 6. Attach paint chips to string or thread and add bows (or other embellishment) with a small pop dot.
Step 7. Hang!
I love to add a banner or garland to my rustic barn wood floating mantel.
