DIY Paper Easter Eggs

Alright…that’s it…I’m over Winter and ready for Spring! I recently packed up and stored away all my Christmas decor and quickly realized that I really don’t have much in my home decor arsenal for Spring. When I think about springtime I can’t help but to think about the Easter holiday. I really love this time of year and figured I could craft something for my home. I created these DIY Paper Easter Eggs and I absolutely love how they turned out!

It’s important to know that this project is way easier and faster if you have a Cricut cutting machine. It can also be done if you have a regular computer printer at home, but it does take a little bit more time and patience.


Step 1: Download the Files

Download the files by clicking HERE or up above in the supplies list.

The link will take you to my Etsy shop where you will be able to purchase and download the digital files. These files can be used over and over again to make as many eggs as you wish!

If you are using a Cricut, you will be using the SVG files.

If you are using a printer, you will be using the PDF files.

Step 2: Cut the Pieces

  5. Click Browse
