Easter Wreath DIY

I did this wreath last Easter. It was one of the first crafty things I did since Penelope was born. I remember putting her in her bumbo and letting her play with a plastic egg and she watched me while I worked. Oh, what a difference a year makes!

It was really easy to make. I bought a wreath from Michael’s for a couple of bucks. I left the plastic wrap on the wreath, but it probably would have been cuter if I had wrapped in a colorful ribbon first and then hot glued the eggs to it.

Then I just picked a spot to start and started hot gluing eggs to the wreath. I did the colors in a specific order and tried to line it up best I could, so that no two of the same colors were touching each other.

It probably took me 30 minutes to complete. I was worried that it wouldn’t be able to stand up to the elements outside or being tossed about while in storage, but it did great last year on the door and great all year in storage. This year some of the eggs sort of opened up but they were easy to close back up. And really you can’t even tell unless you are up close.

I also thought I would show you a picture of this little decoration I have. I didn’t make it, I bought it at Target a couple years ago the day after Easter for less than a dollar.

But it would be super easy to make! You could cut out felt petals and hot glue it to the center circle of felt. Then you could find the wooden letters and eggs at Michael’s, paint them and then hot glue it all to a gross grain ribbon!
