I couldn’t help but notice the cute Easter egg wreaths all over Pinterest, and when a friend decided to make one (which turned out awesome), I knew I had to give it a try. It’s an easy project, and at a total cost of around $10 it’s a cute and affordable craft to try with the kiddos. There are plenty of these on Pinterest to choose from, but these are the steps I used to make this version:
- Cover a basic green styrofoam wreath with a decorative ribbon. My wreath was had a flat top and bottom, and I covered it in the same green ribbon I used for the bow. This is so that it doesn’t stand out if it shows around the eggs.
- Cover the wreath with the plastic eggs using hot glue. I started on the inside, went to the outside, and then filled the middle and alternated the egg colors.
- Add additional eggs to the top of the wreath. After covering the wreath with the eggs, I decided the rows of eggs looked a little too precise. To get a more whimsical (and full) look, I added more eggs to the top of the wreath focusing on the center so that it would have a rounded appearance and to cover the green ribbon underneath. I used 165 eggs on this wreath.
- Tie ribbon around wreath to hang from door hanger and add a bow. My usual wreath hanger is black and bulky, so I picked up this white one for less than $3 at the craft store.
