How to make a flower garland with Easter eggs

Plastic Easter eggs are the perfect way to give a pop of color to springtime decor. Split them in half, and they can easily become the three-dimensional centers of the flowers in a garland. String it up to bring a smile to any room in your home or to accent an Easter party without spending a lot of time or money.
Whether or not you celebrate Easter, you can use those plastic eggs to decorate at this time of year. They represent birth and something new, which is what springtime is all about, regardless of your religious affiliation. If you do celebrate Easter, you'll have plenty of these leftover after the holiday, so instead of putting them away for another year, turn them into an all-season-long decoration.
