Get the whole family in on this DIY Easter Egg Wreath

I think Patty Schaffer’s DIY Easter Egg Wreath is the prettiest one yet! It’s a super-fast wreath to DIY, and a fun family activity, too. As the family gathers ‘round this holiday weekend, ask each family member to decorate an egg for the wreath. The plain white, plastic eggs are like mini canvases, each one a masterpiece in waiting. When the decorating is done, arrange the eggs on the wreath and you’ll have a family heirloom to enjoy for years to come. Let’s get “crackin'” on this Easter Egg & Spring Blossoms Wreath.

Look at how those colors pop!

To make an Easter Egg & Spring Blossoms Wreath:

1. Gather the family and decorate the eggs. If using egg dye, follow the instructions on the package. Or, paint the eggs with acrylic craft paints or gouache paints (Patty used gouache paints). You can also draw your designs with permanent markers.

How to make an easy Easter Egg Wreath

Wrap your fabric strip around the wreath of STYROFOAM Brand Foam, and pin the fabric in place on the back of the wreath.

2. Loosely wrap the fabric strip around the wreath of STYROFOAM Brand Foam. As you wrap the fabric around the wreath, pin the fabric to the back of the wreath. Continue till the wreath is completely covered.

3. Arrange the cherry blossom branches and pussy willow branches where the fabric ends meet on the wreath. Trim branches as needed to create a pleasing arrangement. Glue branches in place.

4. Add moss in and around the branches; be sure to cover any visible hot glue.

5. Arrange eggs around the moss and branches. When pleased with the arrangement, glue the eggs in place.

6. If you like, add more cherry blossoms, pussy willows, and moss to fill in the arrangement.

7. Thread ribbon through the wreath for a hanger.

    Although Easter is over, I do love the wreath. You could add more flowers or robin’s eggs to take the place of the Easter eggs and, voila, a spring wreath.
