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.)
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
- Low-temp glue gun
- Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; straight pins; optional: rotary cutter and mat
To make an Easter Egg Wreath:
- 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.
- Randomly glue eggs to the wreath till it’s covered completely.
- Tuck in Spanish moss between the eggs, filling in empty spaces.
- Tie ribbon in a bow, and glue to the wreath.
Easy, right? Do you like the purple ombre eggs, or would you choose a different color?
