Here’s what’s hatching today: DIY an easy Easter Egg Wreath

The pretty, Purple Ombre Easter Egg Wreath Patty Schaffer created last year sings “spring” and I decided to make my own springtime Easter Egg Wreath this year. When I saw these colorful, polka dot Confetti Eggs, I knew they would be perfect for my DIY Easter Egg Wreath. I am a sucker for polka dots! I made my wreath slightly smaller, and added a few fuzzy chicks just for fun. This Easter egg wreath is easy, so no matter how you like your eggs, I hope you’ll give it a try.

This was a fun wreath to DIY and I made it in an evening.

To make a Confetti Easter Egg Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
  • Plastic eggs with confetti design, 5 dozen (I found mine at Oriental Trading)
  • Tissue paper in bright green
  • Fuzzy chicks, two
  • Ribbon (for hanging)
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; chopstick or other pointed tool

My supplies are ready so let’s go!

To make a Confetti Easter Egg Wreath:

1. Arrange eggs around the outside and the inside of the wreath, and then glue the eggs in place.

First step — arrange the eggs around the inside and outside of the wreath.

2. Layer the eggs on top of the wreath, and when you like the arrangement, glue them in place. Don’t worry about the openings between the eggs, because you’ll fill those in with tissue paper.

Don’t worry about the gaps between the eggs. You’ll fill those in with tissue paper.

3. Cut 3” squares of tissue paper. Using a chopstick or other pointed tool, insert a tissue paper square between the eggs and into the wreath. Continue to add squares of tissue paper till you’ve filled in all openings.

4. Glue the chicks to the wreath.

5. Thread a ribbon through the wreath, knot the ends together, and hang.

I thought about adding polka dots to the chicks, and I’m glad I left them “as is.”

I briefly thought about adding polka dots to the chicks – after all, wouldn’t polka dot chicks hatch from polka dot eggs? But I decided they were cute enough “as is” and I would leave them be.

This wreath went together in an evening, so it’s an easy one. There are so many styles and colors of plastic eggs in the stores and online, and I hope you find a few dozen that you really love so you can make your own Easter Egg Wreath.

It’s hard to believe that Easter is just a few weeks away! I’ll have more spring and Easter  crafts for you next week. Have you started crafting and decorating for Easter?

Happy crafting.

Sharon

    plastic tablecovers cut in squares may make a little more weather proof. there are so many colors to choose from. so cute either way

    • Sharon says:

      That is an excellent idea, and I think it would work perfectly — thank you for the suggestion. I wonder if plastic grocery bags, if you would find the right color, would also work. So glad you stopped in today! Happy crafting! Sharon

    So pretty! I have never seen confetti eggs before. Something new to me. Love how you have added several different textiles including the ribbon, tissue paper, and chicks. Looks like a fun project. I am thinking indoor use only. I do not think it would withstand outdoor weather!

    • Sharon says:

      Good point, Angie — the tissue paper would melt and run if it got wet! It’s pretty lightweight, too. I would definitely hang it in an area protected from the weather. Craft on, Angie! Sharon

  12. Definitely thinking about making one of these!! Absolutely adorable!! LOVE those confetti eggs! Thanks for sharing!

    • Sharon says:

      🙂 Thank you! It was a lot of fun to make, and super easy, too. The eggs are available in so many different styles — lots of possibilities. What fun would it be if Jenna picked out the eggs she liked, and you made the wreath together?? Happy crafting! Sharon

    How perfect – confetti eggs – how fun.Thanks for the great idea.

    • Sharon says:

      I know — when I saw those eggs on the web site, I knew I had to have them! I always seem to find new designs each year and the collection grows . . . I hope you get a chance to DIY an Easter Egg Wreath, too. Happy crafting! Sharon

  14. This would raise anyone’s spirits!

  15. Katiria says:

    I love this idea. It really calls out “SPRING”

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you! I really had fun making it and I love the spring look, too. What’s on your list for the weekend — any crafting fun? Sharon

  16. Sar Tann says:

    This is darling with endless possibility’s.

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you! How would you change it up? I already have another idea (or two!) for this wreath, too. I’d love to hear your ideas. Happy crafting! Sharon
