And then I googled "Paint Chip Sample Easter Garland" and found this which seems to be the origin of the phenomenon:
And so I totally copied the idea and made one myself. First I went to Home Depot and picked out practically one of every one of their paint chip samples.
Then I made an Easter egg template and traced it with a light purple marker onto each paint chip sample and cut them out.
Then I organized the eggs by color.
Then I put them in the order I wanted (I repeated pink, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple) and sewed them together across the top.
Viola - an easy peasy, free, cute Easter garland!
Our very first Easter decoration :)
