Easter Egg Wreath

With Easter being a little early this year, I busted out some of the Easter decorations (actually, I only have 3 items…kinda sad, but I’m working on it!). I feel like I’m completely skipping St. Patrick’s Day.

I also wanted to share how I made my favorite Easter item last year…an Easter Egg Wreath!

Easter wreath 5

I ventured to Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon in hand and picked up the required items:

Styrofoam ring

Bags of pastel Easter eggs

Wired ribbon

Approximate total spent: $12

Easter wreath supplies

With glue gun in hand, I just started to glue each egg on individually. I made sure they were closed all of the way and then put a small line of glue down the center of the egg, making sure to cover both sides of the egg to better ensure they don’t come apart.

I just glued them on however way would create the least amount of white space being shown from the ring underneath. You could wrap some colored ribbon around the ring prior to gluing the eggs on if you want to see a color underneath as opposed to white.

Of course, I ran out of eggs midway through the wreath, so the project had to be postponed until after another trip to Hobby Lobby.

Easter wreath 3

But just my luck, Hobby Lobby did not have any of these Easter eggs left on the shelf when I went a few days before Easter. So I went to Target and found a bag of eggs which ended up not being the correct size or color (super FAIL).

Luckily, Brett made a quick trip to Micheal’s and was able to find some that were very similar. I just removed a few of the original ones and inserted some of the new ones to make it look more even.

Complete!

Easter wreath 4

I cut the ribbon to the length I wanted the wreath to hang on the door and wrapped it around the top of the wreath. I did a quick internet search on “how to make a bow”, and it turns out it is pretty easy. There are lots of different bow tutorials out there, but I basically just made several loops from largest to smallest, tied some wire around the center to hold them all together and then scattered and fluffed them up. This works well with wired ribbon, which helps it stay in the shape you put it.

Viola!

Of course, we added a touch of Disney.

    LOVE the egg idea! Isn’t it funny how it always takes more ‘material’ thank you think.
    I’m so glad it turned out so well.
    Bet you’ve had lots of compliments. πŸ™‚

    You could also stick some cute Easter grass in the spots where the styrofoam wreath may show through. It is very cute

    About how many eggs did it take in all? Cute project! I want to do this, but DON’T want to have to make multiple trips, as I always do too…

      I’m not sure how many exactly, I would say about 6 or so bags that you see pictured…you can always buy extra and then stick any remaining ones is glass jars for cute decorations around your house!

      I was wondering that too. I counted around 80 from the photos. I also don’t want to have to go back 2 or 3 times because I would keep running out of eggs! lol

    You could also spray paint the styrofoam….pink, green, yellow. Cheaper and easier than ribbon. =)

      You can’t spray paint styrofoam – it disintegrates.

    I found bags of eggs at Walmart 42 eggs for $1.97. I bought 2 bags and hope that’s enough for 2 wreaths. I think I will stuff the empty spots with grass to fill it in. Thanks for the great idea!!
