Which came first, the ribbon or the egg? Whatever the answer, the two materials partner beautifully in spring centerpieces, graceful garlands, and sustainable surprises you can pull out year after year. To double down on symbols of spring, hang dyed eggs from flowering branches, like the dogwood shown here. We ordered blown-out eggs, which come with small holes on each end, and got straight to the fun: Tinting them in happy hues, hooking ribbon onto floral wire, and pulling it through each egg and back to create a loop on top and a wispy tail beneath. If your fabric is wide and textured enough, you may not need to tie a knot under the egg to hold it in place; just snip the ends as desired.
