A quick & easy Easter Egg Wreath that anyone can make! Add a festive touch 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, 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!

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
First, watch our video tutorial (this is for version #2). Below the video we have step-by-step instructions how to make a wreath with plastic Easter eggs two different ways.

Easter Egg Wreath #1
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!)
Easter Egg Wreath #2
For the second version of our Easter Egg Wreath, you start with the simple wreath above, without the pipe cleaners.
Next, you glue an inner ring of about 6 large eggs to your wreath.
Lastly, glue a top layer of eggs, alternating between large and small eggs.
This is a more 3-dimensional Easter egg wreath, but it’s still just as simple to make!
Such a fun Easter craft to make with the kids (just be sure to help or supervise with the glue gun).
Update 1/2018 – We’ve had our Easter egg wreath for three years now and it still looks great! I’m impressed how well this craft held up over time – we use it every spring!
