Happy almost Easter weekend!

I hope you have some fun plans for hanging out with family but if you don’t,
why not grab the kids and make an Easter egg wreath! This wreath is
affordable, quick and easy, and I’ll bet all the craft stores have their stuff
on sale too, so it should be even cheaper to make!

Hot tip: Save money and make your own beautiful wreath filled with pastel
plastic eggs, moss and a pretty gingham bow!

How to make an Easter egg wreath

This wreath is so simple to make, it hardly warrants a tutorial. However,
there are a few tips and tricks that I’ll share along the way to ensure you
successful wreath making!

This is an affordable DIY wreath that cost less than $18 for all the supplies*
Most of the supplies came from Hobby Lobby, but I’m linking to similar
products on Amazon below in case you don’t have a HL near you.

*update – I added two packages of
these eggs
this year to make my wreath fuller (they’re currently $2.99/pkg at Michaels)

Supplies

* you can use a wide variety of eggs for this wreath, plastic ones are
lightweight and will hold up well outside in all sorts of weather

** I grabbed a couple bags of
this green moss
from the dollar store but had to dip into my stash of Spanish and reindeer
moss because I ran out. The pastel eggs would also look amazing using
excelsior – perfect if you like a softer, more neutral look!

Making the wreath

First off, this is a messy project! The grapevine and the moss will get
everywhere, so make sure you’re working on a covered surface or somewhere that
is easy to clean!

Getting started

I found it easiest to lay out the eggs on the wreath form to get a rough idea
of how I wanted the finished wreath to look and to make sure I had enough of
each color egg for a balanced look. Also, the eggs I purchased came in a
couple of different sizes, and the smaller eggs were great to fill in empty
spots.

Designer Tip: Hot gluing an egg to a grapevine wreath base is a little
tricky because there isn’t a smooth surface. I solved this by gluing an egg
first to a small piece of moss, then hot gluing the moss to the wreath.

Once all the eggs were attached, I went back and filled in the bare parts on
the wreath form with more moss.

The dollar store moss was a little tricky to work with because it doesn’t really
clump (it’s a bunch of tiny little pieces). I used more glue with that moss and
also found it was better to tuck that moss into the small holes between the
grapevine so it would stay in place better.

This is the kind of DIY wreath that doesn’t take a lot of concentration, and
was finished really quickly.

Designer tip: to make this wreath with kids, I would recommend using a
foam ring
for the wreath base because it will be easier to attach the eggs.

To keep costs down, I didn’t fill the wreath up with eggs. Once I had all the
Easter eggs and moss on the DIY egg wreath, I made a quick bow from pretty
blue gingham ribbon, and attached the bow to the wreath with
craft wire

My girlfriend and I did this wreath craft together and here are the finished
wreaths hanging on our respective front doors.

Update: after finding
these pastel eggs
on sale at Michaels for only $2.99 each, I decided to fill in the empty
spaces on the wreath and I really love the fuller look!
