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.
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
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.
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.
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 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?
