Easter Egg Wreath

Hooray! Spring is finally here!

What better way to celebrate than to decorate the house with some bright spring colors?
I decided to start that adventure by making an easy, inexpensive Easter egg wreath.


I bought everything I needed at the dollar store, and spent a total of about $3 on this project. I must have been hiding under a rock or something because I had NO idea that the dollar store had wreath forms!! I have been overpaying for far too long...

Here's what I used to make the wreath:
Wreath form
Regular size Easter eggs {I used about 22}
Styrofoam glitter eggs {4 regular size}
These came pre-glittered and on picks. I bought one set of 5 regular size, and one set of 4 large eggs.
Hot glue

I didn't bother wrapping the wreath with ribbon or anything, but this might help if you have problems gluing the eggs onto the wreath. I needed to hold the egg in place for a minute or two until the glue cooled enough that the egg didn't shift. I started at the bottom and randomly added in the glitter eggs on.

Once the eggs were all on and the wreath was set, I added on some colored bows that came with the glitter eggs to add a little something extra. I ended up not having room on the wreath for the large eggs, so I just added them into my apothecary jars.


I love how colorful and EASY this wreath is!

Happy Spring!

  3. So fun and happy. It's crazy that wreath forms can be found at the dollar store now. Yay for using the coupons on *other* fun things instead of the forms now! Thanks for sharing such a great and easy project. Happy Easter! :)
