A quick & easy Easter Egg Wreath that anyone can make! Add a festive touch of Spring to your front doors in minutes with two different versions of this Easter craft.
Such a cute & clever way to use those extra plastic Easter eggs that you might have around the house or in your holiday storage!
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 my youngest daughter, 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, and Valentine’s Day. But I didn’t have a wreath for Easter yet!
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!

UPDATE 2019: We made a second version of our Easter Egg Wreath, just as easy as the first, but more 3-dimensional in style. We’ll show you how to make both!

How to Make an Easter Egg Wreath
Below you’ll find two different versions of our easy Easter wreath using plastic Easter eggs.
Our NEW Easter Egg Wreath
Start by gluing a ring of plastic Easter eggs on top of a wire wreath frame. Our frame is 12″ size, but you can use any size.
If you use a larger wreath frame, keep in mind that you will need more eggs than pictured in our tutorial.
Next, you glue an inner ring of about 6 large eggs to your wreath. It’s ok if the eggs don’t fit together perfectly because we will cover any spaces with our top layer of eggs.
Lastly, glue a top layer of eggs, alternating between large and small eggs, until you’ve covered all the gaps.
I loved the look of the wreath with just eggs, but you can add bows, Easter basket grass, or any decorations you’d like to personalize your creation. Have fun with it!
Printable instructions for this DIY Easter wreath are available at the bottom of the post.
Our Original Easter Wreath Design
This was the first egg wreath that we made a few years ago when I published the original blog post. I loved it, but over the years, the colors on the plastic eggs began to fade, which is why we made the new wreath pictured above.
First, 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 glued anything, 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.
Next, 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:
Slide one pipe cleaner under the wreath.
Cross the ends of pipe cleaner and twist twice to keep in place.
Slide a second pipe cleaner under the wreath and fasten the same way by twisting.
Fold the ends of the second pipe cleaner in to form a “bow.”
Twist the first pipe cleaner over the ends of the bow to secure.
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.
Couldn’t be easier!
I’m so happy with how my first DIY Easter Egg wreath turned out! (Especially since it was easy and free!)
