How to DIY an Easter Egg Wreath (in purple ombre!)

The purple eggs on this Easter Egg Wreath remind me of jelly beans. Designer Patty Schaffer made this Easter Egg Wreath with purple plastic eggs in three different shades for an ombre effect. The ombre eggs are on sale over at Oriental Trading, and they’re also available in pink, blue and green. Mix it up and use whatever color you like. Here’s how to make your Easter Egg Wreath in four easy steps. (I have a winner to announce today, too.)

Purple Ombre Easter Egg Wreath by Patty Schaffer.

To make an Easter Egg Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 14” wreath
  • Fabric, ½ yd.
  • Plastic eggs, at least 7 dozen (you’ll find the purple ombre eggs at Oriental Trading)
  • Spanish moss
  • Ribbon
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; straight pins; optional: rotary cutter and mat

To make an Easter Egg Wreath:

  1. Cut fabric into 1-1/4” wide strips. Pin and glue a strip to the back of the wreath, and then wrap the strip around the wreath; pin and glue the other end. Continue wrapping the wreath till covered.
  1. Randomly glue eggs to the wreath till it’s covered completely.

Easy, right? Do you like the purple ombre eggs, or would you choose a different color?

    What a perfectly purple wreath 🙂 This year I got about half my Easter decorations out and they are just sitting there in the corner waiting for me to put them up. So many decorations, so little time 🙂
    Congratulations Barb!

      Fortunately, there’s still a lot of time to decorate, Katiria. I know you’ll have an eggs-tra fun Easter this year with your new little bunny. Sharon

    Congrats, Barb! So happy for you!

    I love the purple egg wreath. Purple is not my fav color like my friend Shiela. But have to say, the purple came out pretty. Another color palet would be blue, pink, green, or even yellow for Spring and Easter colors. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I love this post! What a lovely blog as well.


  6. Message sent!! I am so excited! 🙂 I am planning on doing some coloring this weekend and also making a scrapmabob for a challenge. I also want to play around with some new stamps that I have gotten this week and hoping to finish painting a tote bag I am working on. After that, who knows? Waiting for my foam products to arrive so I can get started on my projects from the site! Have a great weekend!
