Easter is a festive colorful holiday. Decorate your house, buffet table or kids room with these easy to make Easter egg string lights.
Watch how easy these are to make, then read on for a full supply list and more details.
I have collected a good share of plastic Easter eggs since my kids have been born. I fill them up for the various egg hunts they participate in then bring them back home and pack them away for next year. This year when I pulled out my Easter bin I decided I needed to do something special with a few of these eggs.

Here’s how to make Easter egg string lights
- Plastic eggs
- String lights
- Drill bit – use a bit the size of the bulbs on your string lights
- Block of wood
Use appropriate protection and follow all operating instructions when using any power tools.
I started by placing the top of my egg on a block of wood. Holding it in place with my hand I drilled a hole into the center. The block of wood keeps the drill from damaging the work surface below.
That’s about it, just drill holes into the eggs, enough to fill your string lights, then pop the eggs onto the lights.
I used a drill bit that is the same size as the light bulb. The eggs fit snugly and I didn’t need to use anything else to secure them. This means I can take the eggs off the lights after Easter and pack the items away separately to use another time.
String these Easter egg string lights above your Easter buffet table, or put them up on your mantle this month. This is an easy fun project using items you are sure to have around your house.
