Spring…what a gorgeous time of year! It means Easter is almost here and summer is drawing near! It means that gorgeous green blades of grass are beginning to appear and beautiful tulips are starting to creep up through the ground after sleeping the whole winter through.

Spring also brings with it an elegant pastel color palette of pinks, purples, yellows, and blues and today we are going to celebrate those beeeeautiful colors with this simple, yet gorgeous glittery Ribbon Easter Egg you can hang anywhere, place on your Easter mantle or, as I did, add to your entry way table decor.

Let’s make this cute little Easter Egg together. All you need are a few simple supplies:

Dazzle Grosgrain
Sugar Chevron
Fat Quarter of White Fabric
Heat N Bond

Let’s get started.

Cut your ribbon into strips. The length will determine the size of your Easter Egg.
My ribbon strips were approximately 7″ long.

Decide where you want your ribbon to be placed in your Easter Egg pattern.

Lay ribbon on top of the Heat N Bond. Iron ribbon to adhere it to the Heat N Bond following manufacturer’s instructions.

Draw your Easter Egg shape on the back (paper side) of the Heat N Bond.
*I recommend that you draw your egg shape on the paper side of the Heat N Bond prior to ironing your ribbon to the Heat N Bond. This will make creating your egg shape so much easier. :)

Remove paper of Heat N Bond from the back of the Easter Egg and iron egg to fabric.

This step is optional…I wanted to make sure that none of my ribbon lifted from my fabric, so I did a tight zig zag stitch around the outside of the egg.

I used an old canvas, that I no longer use, as the base for my egg decor. To cover the old canvas, I wrapped the canvas in white fabric and then covered that with my egg decor.
