1. Print the Template: Start by printing out the template on colored paper or cardstock. Make sure to choose a color that complements your Easter theme or personal style.

Use stickers, ribbons, or drawings to make it unique and eye-catching. Let your imagination run wild and have fun with the decorating process.
