The Easiest DIY Easter Egg Wreath

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m not exactly a craft whiz. However, while on a walk this morning with AB, I found inspiration for this Easter Egg Wreath! One of our neighbors had a festive Easter wreath on their front door. I hang wreaths for every occasion: Christmas, Halloween, 4th of July, etc., but I didn’t have one for Easter!

Then I remembered a bunch of extra plastic eggs my mother-in-law had brought over last year and I had stuffed in the hall closet. And for some reason we had a couple metal wreath frames in the closet too. I started getting more and more excited as I thought about it — I had extra pastel pipe cleaners…and a hot glue gun — surely I could put something together!

PART ONE: I glued the eggs to the wreath frame with the widest part of the eggs touching each other and the pointy side facing outwards.

TIP Before I did this I arranged the eggs in a pattern so I wouldn’t accidentally end up with two of the same color next to each other — I had a limited number of eggs since I was only using what I found in storage.

PART TWO: Once all the eggs were attached (and glue dried), I decided to jazz up the wreath with some pipe cleaners. I played around with it until I had created some faux bows. Here’s how:

Lastly, I trimmed the ends of the pipe cleaners so they didn’t stick out quite so far and tied on a ribbon bow for a finishing touch.

I’m so happy with how my first DIY Easter Egg wreath turned out! Especially since it was easy and free! I think I could get the hang of this crafting thing. 🙂
