How to Create an Easy Easter Egg Wreath

Easy Easter Egg Wreath

At this time of year, when everything outside is still dull and brown, I feel the need to add touches of fun color to my home’s decor, like this easy Easter egg wreath that I’m sharing today.

This spring I feel the need more than ever. It feels good to be creating colorful things that will add some cheer to my home.

Because I’m staying home these days, I had everything I needed for this project already.

I love all the colors of these plastic Easter eggs, and I already turned some of them into decoupaged Easter eggs.

In this easy wreath project I’m using a bunch more.

I’ve always got a stash of wreath forms of all kinds because I never know when I’ll get the urge to create something.

For this project I’m using a 12″ styrofoam wreath form.

With the help of my very used hot glue gun this project will be pretty easy to do.

The first thing I did was arrange my eggs by color, and I decided to simplify by using all the same size.

Sparkly white Christmas garland to cover wreath form

So that the wreath form isn’t visible between the plastic Easter eggs I wanted to use something to cover it.

I didn’t have any of that Easter grass stuff, so I went into my Christmas stash and found this sparkly white garland.

It has hints of pink, which I love.

I simply wrapped the garland around the wreath form, and secured it with some hot glue at the ends.

Then I glued eggs around the outside, varying the colors just in a way that I liked.

This is a project where you just wing the look as you go.

Then I went around the inside, and for the top I put the eggs at different angles to fit.

I found a bag of polka dotted eggs so of course I had to add some of those as well.

Thankfully they were the same size.

Supplies needed for Easy Easter Egg Wreath

  • plastic Easter eggs
  • pretty garland
  • 12″ styrofoam wreath form
  • glue gun
  • glue sticks

VARIATION: If you don’t have plastic Easter eggs you could cut egg shapes out of cardboard and paint and decorate them, and then apply them to a circle wreath shape also cut out of cardboard.

It’s so fun how the white sparkly garland peeks out all over the place.

I used white because I knew I was going to be hanging it on my aqua blue door, but you could use any color you like.

This was a pretty easy project and it only took about two hours of glorious creative distraction, and that is something we all need these days.

    Stay well. Stay in. Appreciate you! Sharon

    1. Thanks Sharon! I’m so glad you’re going to continue with your projects. 🙂 We really need to keep our creative spirits.

  3. Very cute and colourful! I made one a few years back and hang it on my door every year. Mine took much longer since I glued Easter grass on instead of a garland which is much easier to work with than grass lol! ( a garland is less messy too!) I love how yours looks on your aqua door!

    1. Thanks Pam! You’re so right, the garland is much easier, and I think it gives a similar effect.

    That wreath is so colourful and fun-looking. I, too, love how the white bits are sticking every which way through the eggs! I also appreciate your variation suggestion too as I don’t currently have any wreath forms and, of course, can’t go and get one. Also, there isn’t a lot of room between my front door and the storm door and the flatter wreath may fit in the available space better!

    1. Thanks Lyn! I’m so glad that you like the variation idea. The fun thing about creating flat cardboard eggs is they can be decorated in so many different ways.

    Your wreath is just beautiful! I love the bits of the white garland poking through and the bright and cheerful eggs make one want to have an egg hunt right now! I bet it looks gorgeous hanging on your door!
