This week we’re making an Easter wreath. It might be a little crazy that I am already thinking of Easter decorations but when I see all of the Easter goodies out in the stores it’s hard to resist. I have come to love making wreaths for my front door, which is odd because I was never really a fan of them before.
I made a wreath for Christmas and was hooked so I decided to make an Easter one too. It is super cute and SUPER easy but it takes a bit of time to do it so make sure you allow yourself at least an hour for this project.
What you’ll need:
- A wreath form
- Plastic Easter eggs (I used big and small ones)
- Hot glue
- Bag of “grass”
- Ribbon (if you want to hang it)
Take your eggs and glue them all around the front of your wreath, you will need to put a good amount of hot glue on each and hold them for a minute before moving on to the next one.
You can do them in whatever color pattern you like. I did a row of big ones on the front and side of the wreath and then added some of the paper “grass” to fill in all of the open spots and the inside of the wreath. Once I was done all of that I decided to add the little eggs on top for some height.
I decided to just sit this wreath on our shelf for now, when it gets closer to Easter I will add some nice ribbon and hang it on our front door.
