Easter is just around the corner on April 16. If you haven't decorated yet, there's still time! Here is a beautiful Easter egg wreath you can make to use up all of your extra plastic eggs floating around the house.
What You Need
This is a list of the materials I used to create my wreath.
- wreath form
- plastic Easter eggs
- paper Easter grass
- small styrofoam Easter eggs
- wire ribbon
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
You can always substitute other things you have on hand. My wreath form came from Goodwill on 50% off day for just $1! It's the straw kind, so I simply left the plastic on the wreath to keep it contained. The eggs are the best part! At a yard sale, they had a huge bag of them for FREE... The only issue was that they said Publix across all of them 🙂 For this project, though, it didn't matter, because I turned the wording to the inside.
I found the styrofoam eggs and grass at the Dollar Tree. The ribbon was from my gift wrapping bin. In total, I spent $3 for the entire project!
Steps to Make Your Easter Egg Wreath
1. Organize your Easter eggs so that it's easy to place them on the wreath by colors.
2. Use your glue gun to attach the eggs to your wreath form. I glued each egg to the actual form and then connected them to the eggs around it. Place them as close to each other as you can, but small gaps are okay. To keep the bulkiness down, I didn't glue them to the back side of the wreath form.
3. Add dollops of hot glue into the gaps, and use your Easter grass to fill in the holes.
4. Take your small styrofoam eggs and glue them into the bigger grass sections.
5. Use your ribbon to make a pretty bow. I made three bows and then fastened them in the center with another scrap. If you want a little more direction, you can check out this post by Victoria Elizabeth Barnes. It's for Christmas bows, but it can be applied to any type.
6. Attach your bow by either tying it around the wreath or using pins.
7. Find a place in your house to display it. Mine is heavy, so I sit it on my mantle instead of trying to hang it.
Remember all of those loose eggs around your house that you didn't know what to do with? Now you have turned them into a beautiful Easter egg wreath! Just adding this touch to your home will bring a little spring color and Easter festivity. Enjoy the holiday!
