Easter Egg Wreath

 I aspire to be one of those people who has her house totally decked out in appropriate holiday decor weeks before the actually holiday arrives. (AKA: my mother in law.) Instead it's less than a week until Easter and I just took down my kids' four leaf clovers and snowmen crafts only to find that my collection of Easter decorations is unfortunately very sparse. I'm not usually one to go out and buy decorations, so I decided to go the cheap route and use whatever odds and ends I could find at home...Voila! I ended up making this wreath inspired by this Pinterest find:

Supplies Needed:
a basic wreath 
ribbon (optional)
3-4 dozen plastic Easter eggs
hot glue gun
newspaper (to cover gluing area)

1. Make or a buy a wreath. (I stuck a piece of wire down the middle of foam PVC pipe covering and taped the ends together to form a circle.)

2. Wrap ribbon around the wreath so that any uncovered surfaces won't look so nasty.

3. Start gluing! After some trial and error, I discovered that it works well to glue the eggs to each other rather than always trying to glue them to the wreath. You don't need to glue any eggs to the back of the wreath - just the front and a bit of the sides.

4. Let everything dry. If desired, add a bow. Then hang up and enjoy your work of art!

Happy Easter! He is Risen!


  1. I love the wreath. So very creative. I am going to make one for next year.

  2. You made it look so easy! I bought a long thing of plumbing foam (I had read to buy that, cut to size and duct tape it into a wreath), but have yet to use it. Now I'm feeling inspired...
